Tropico 5 North American Retail Version Now Available

by

Your ticket to sunny beaches and political corruption is now ready! After a delay in the production process, the boxed retail version of Tropico 5 for PC is now available at retailers across North America. Retail purchasers can now take control of the island paradise and become a magnanimous leader of the people, or impose the fierce grip of tyranny amongst the populace. As long as El Presidente’s legacy, and Swiss Bank account, is secure across the multiple eras of Tropico 5, the fate and future of Tropico are up to you!

As a special “thank you” from Kalypso Media and El Presidente, Kalypso Media today announced they are rewarding the North American retail community by providing the first DLC pack – ‘The Big Cheese’ – at no cost to those who have been patiently awaiting the North American retail version. ‘The Big Cheese’ DLC pack will automatically unlock at no charge once it becomes available this summer. To celebrate, Kalypso Media has created an updated launch trailer to mark the occasion. View the trailer below to glimpse the true glory of El Presidente, as well as see the fantastic responses from media who have already visited the island paradise of Tropico.

Since its launch via digital on May 23, Tropico 5 has become the fastest selling version of the series to date. Tropico 5 is now available for PC on Steam and at retail – playable through Kalypso Launcher. Xbox 360® and Mac will be available this summer – with a version for the PlayStation®4 platform following in autumn.
