Kalypso Media has announced that Tropico 5 will be released on PlayStation 4, marking the series’ debut on a Sony platform.

Tropico 5 has also previously been announced for PC, Mac, and Xbox 360. An Xbox One release is yet to be announced. The game will include several new features, such as advanced trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees, and exploration.

Also, in a first for the series, Tropico 5 will introduce cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players.

“We have been evaluating many new and exciting development opportunities for the Tropico brand and by bringing Tropico 5 to PlayStation 4 we open a new chapter in the history of the game,” said Kalypso MD Stefan Marcinek.

“By taking full advantage of the PlayStation 4′s processing power the island of Tropico and El Presidente have never looked better.”

Tropico 5 is set to release at some point this year, with Kalypso promising a more accurate release date ”in due course.”
