  • Dress for the part with the Mayor costume, which includes a monocle, dress suit and special necklace
Pirate Heaven DLC contents –
  • Dress like a pirate: New “Pirate Queen” outfit available for female avatars
  • Set sail for treasure: Engage in piracy and fill your Tropican coffers with loot
  • New island defences: Defend your island from those who might not look fondly upon your pirate ambitions
Vigilante DLC contents –
  • El Presidente becomes a masked hero, protecting the citizens of his island from criminals
  • Lock ‘em away: a new building, the Labor camp, puts convicts to work for the betterment of the island
  • Who’s that masked hero: a new character trait, the Alter Ego, reduces crime on the island while boosting tourism and impressing the Tropican nationals
  • Put on a new face: a new costume, Zorro, allows El Presidente to become a masked hero to the people
