Bracknell, UK – 30th January 2014 – Kalypso Media is thrilled to announce that Tropico 5, the next instalment of the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed Tropico city-builder series, is currently in development for PlayStation®4. Developed by Haemimont Studios, Tropico 5 will see the series come to the PlayStation® platform for the first time and will take full advantage of the unique features of the PlayStation®4 hardware and controller. Kalypso will confirm a release date in due course.

“We are delighted to be able to work with Sony to bring Tropico 5 to PlayStation®4 and enter the next generation market.” said Andrew Johnson, Managing Director, Kalypso Media UK. “The PlayStation®4 version of Tropico 5 will expand the Tropico brand to the new generation hardware and to a new generation of gamers.’

‘We have been evaluating many new and exciting development opportunities for the Tropico brand and by bringing Tropico 5 to PlayStation®4 we open a new chapter in the history of the game’ said Stefan Marcinek, Global Managing Director, Kalypso Media. ‘By taking full advantage of the PlayStation®4’s processing power the island of Tropico and El Presidente have never looked better.’

Packed with a whole host of new gameplay features and all new artwork designed from scratch, Tropico 5 takes the series into a new and exciting direction – dynasties!

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 well as a wealth of other new features, including advanced trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees and island exploration, Tropico 5 will add cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players for the first time in the series’ history! Viva El Presidente!

Fancy seeing how El Presidente spends his time when not planning his global domination? Then check out the  Tropico 5 teaser trailer:
