Video game 'Tropico 5' from Kalypso Media.
Game publisher Kalypso Media has revealed plans to release a fifth Tropico game in 2014.
Tropico 5, the next installment in the city-builder series, is currently in development at Haemimont Studios for Xbox 360, Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
Kalypso explains about the game:
"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. 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 your influence and wealth grows, so do the threats to your burgeoning island superpower. Can you survive both World Wars, prosper through the Great Depression, rule as an iron-fisted dictator through the Cold War and advance your country to modern times and beyond? From the 19th to the 21st century, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities."
In addition to improvements to graphics and gameplay, Tropico 5 will also boast cooperative and competitive multiplayer. As many as four players can build up their own cities and economies on any given island map. The can then share resources and citizens, or declare war on each other.
