Bracknell, UK – 12th November, 2012 - It's not enough that El Presidente, the glorious leader of the island nation of Tropico, must face the challenges of creating a modern metropolis and supplying his citizens with basic needs! In Tropico 4 Gold Edition, the upcoming city-builder from Kalypso, the newly elected leader must also contend with all sorts of naturally occurring events, including volcanoes, oil spills, earthquakes and more. In Tropico 4 Gold, you, as El Presidente, will decide on how to handle these challenges – will you go the “money is no object” route, spending your treasury on aid, or will you take a more hands-off approach, saving the cash for your personal Swiss bank account?

How you deal with these challenges, all while crafting your own island paradise, are decisions you’ll make as you play Tropico 4 Gold Edition on either the  the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft or Windows PC.

 

- View on YouTube here.

Tropico 4 Gold Edition is the ultimate city building experience, including: Tropico 4 and the “Modern Times” expansion. As the president of a tiny Caribbean island, it’s up to you to lead your country to greatness!  Will you be a benevolent and tolerant leader, or a power-mad dictator?  Will your economy rely on tourism, farming, big business or cheap sweatshops?  The decisions you make will shape the future of your island, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account.

Features of Tropico 4 Gold

  • Become the heroic leader, or a despicable despot as your customized El Presidente avatar makes decisions for the good or ill of the people
  • Two extensive campaigns consisting of more than 30 unique missions including the new “Modern Times” campaign
  • More than 100 buildings in total, including the stock exchange, shopping mall, aqua park, car factories and shuttle launch pad
  • Council of Ministers – Elevate citizens to government positions to help push through your more controversial decisions
  • Sandbox mode for custom games, with improved map and scenario editor for endless replayability
 

Tropico 4 Gold is available now and for more information about Tropico 4 and Tropico 4: Modern Times, visit the official page here
