Tropico 5 launches on Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Linux early this summer, Kalypso Media has announced.
Originally the developer offered only a vague “later this year” release window. Kalyspo added that the PlayStation 4 version will be released later this year, after the other versions.
“You, as El Presidente, will first take control of the infamous island of Tropico during early colonial times and then guide it through the centuries as the world changes and moves ever forward. You must tackle the changing needs of your people, as well as opposing governments and factions, and thus lay the foundations for your own dynasty,” the developer wrote.
“As you move through your years in office you can promote members of your extended family on the island to positions of power: such as ambassador, commanding general or even Supreme Ruler, to ensure your legacy thrives through the eras.
“As well as a wealth of other new features, including advanced trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees and island exploration, Tropico 5 will add cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players for the first time in the series’ history!”
A beta for the game is scheduled to start later this month and you can sign up for it here.
