Bracknell, UK – 23 rd May 2014 – Return to the island of Tropico where gorgeous sunny beaches and political corruption co-exist in perfect harmony. Tropico 5 is out for PC today via boxed retail, Steam and the Kalypso Launcher – so don your most magnificent beard, as El Presidente is back and he’s ready to let you do all the hard work for him! Take control of the island paradise of Tropico during the colonial period and guide your city through the eras as it grows into a thriving metropolis. Create a social utopia where every citizen is heard and accounted for – or forge your own tyrannical grip over the nation and turn it into a gold mine for your Swiss bank account. The island of Tropico belongs to you, so let your whim take you wherever you like and make El Presidente proud! To celebrate the glorious return of our beloved ruler, Kalypso Media has also released a brand new trailer to mark the occasion. View it below for a look at how to start ruling like a true dictator.

Tropico 5 is out now on PC via Steam and retail (US retail 3 rd June). Xbox 360® and Mac will be available this summer – with a version for the PlayStation®4 platform following in autumn. For more information on Tropico 5 don’t forget to visit the official Tropico 5 website at www.tropico5.com.
