Bracknell, UK – 15th November 2012 – PC fans of Tropico 4 rejoice, as today Kalypso has released another batch of downloadable content for the game! Today, we are pleased to unveil the Megalopolis DLC pack, which includes a new campaign, new avatar clothing and more. 

The Megalopolis DLC is available to download now through various digital portals and the Kalypso Launcher for £3.49/€3.99. The Megalopolis DLC will be available later this year for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

 

The Megalopolis DLC is compatible with the original version of Tropico 4 for Windows PC, and  Tropico 4 Gold Edition.

Megalopolis DLC contents -

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 issues like unemployment, over-population and food shortages. Make use of 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.

  • New building: Conventillo : Cheap housing with plenty of room to spare, but degrades over time and has to be frequently repaired
  • New trait: Bureaucrat: Build cheaper residential buildings while earning more profits from the new “building permit” edict
  • New outfit: Mayor (male avatar), includes monocle, dress suit and special necklace
  • New mission: Megalopolis
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!
