Tropico 5 coming to PS4

Island management sim Tropico 5 will be available on PlayStation 4, published Kalypso Media announced today.

The title, fifth in the line of Tropico city-building and political management games, will make its debut on PlayStation platforms and next-generation consoles with the PS4 version. Kalypso noted in a press statement that Tropico 5 will "take full advantage" of the PS4's unique hardware and controller features.

As El Presidente, players will guide their island of Tropico from its colonial era into the future. Players will need to see to their people and combat opposing government and internal island factions, building a dynasty and maneuvering their family into positions of power to protect their legacy. Tropico 5 will also include updated trading mechanics, new technology to use, new island exploration features and scientific research trees.

The game also features multiplayer for the first time in the series: both co-op and competitive multiplayer modes will be available for up to four players.

Tropico 5 was announced last August for Xbox 360, Windows PC, Mac and Linux. There is currently no word on Xbox One or Wii U versions of the title and a release date is forthcoming.
