Grab Your Cigars and Sunglasses– Tropico 4 Available Now

Kalypso’s humorous city-building game arrives in retail for Windows PC

Bracknell, UK– 26th August 2011- Today is a glorious day for El Presidente, as Tropico 4 has shipped to UK retail outlets for Windows PC. Tropico 4 is a city-building/simulation game unlike any other– one where players can play as a kind and loving“man of the people”, or stamp their jackboots down on the citizenry and rule with a dictator’s iron fist as they control the political, economic and military might of an up-and-coming global powerhouse. A playable PC demo of Tropico 4 is available to download now from www.worldoftropico.com.

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.

Tropico 4 features all new missions across new maps and includes exciting and fun new features to keep the action fresh and challenging. You can even elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial decisions passed through the government. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda!

Tropico 4 also brings a new level of social interaction with the addition of Facebook and Twitter integration (PC version only). Post comments on Twitter direct from the game and have updates go out when you complete missions or unlock new achievements. You can even take screenshots of your island and post them on your Tropico 4 Facebook page and compare your interactive Dictator ranking on the online leaderboards. Every little bit helps when you are bringing your island into the 21st Century!
