A new downloadable content was just released for Tropico 4 on PC for $5, entitled “Megalopolis.” It lets you “build the largest city in the Caribbean! It’s up to you to decide how to deal with the problems that come with a massive influx of immigrants looking to join your society. Manage problems like unemployment, over-population and food shortages. Make use the Conventillo, a cheap new residential building that maximizes living space at a minimal cost. As el Presidente, try on a decidedly more old-fashioned suit and spice it up with a classic monocle and mayoral necklace. The new bureaucrat trait helps you build cheaper residential buildings and earn bigger profits with the “building permit” edict.” Megalopolis is also coming to Xbox 360 later this year.
Among the additions is a new building called “Conventillo” which adds “cheap housing with plenty of room to spare, but degrades over time and has to be frequently repaired,” a new trait called Bureaucrat which lets you “build cheaper residential buildings while earning more profits from the new “building permit” edict,” and a new avatar outfit called Mayor that “includes monocle, dress suit and special necklace.” A new mission(Megalopolis) is of course also present.
“Tropico 4 sees you return as El Presidente, the tyrannical (or benevolent) dictator of the island paradise of Tropico. The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times – geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers – and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your Swiss bank account.”
The gold edition of Tropico 4 was just released recently on PC and Xbox 360 so now is definitely the best time to pick it up. I mean how many games let you play a tyrant?
