PlayStation fans will be able to rule the land as El Presidente thanks to a newly announced PS4 version of Tropico 5.
Kalyso Media, the publisher behind Tropico 5, has revealed that fans will have another platform to play the next entry in the long running series of Cold War-themed city builders. The game, which had already been confirmed for release on PC, Linux, Mac and Xbox 360, will also be coming out on PlayStation 4.
“We are delighted to be able to work with Sony to bring Tropico 5 to PlayStation 4 and enter the next generation market,” said Kalypso UK’s managing director, Andrew Johnson. “The PlayStation 4 version of Tropico 5 will expand the Tropico brand to the new generation hardware and to a new generation of gamers.”
As with previous games, Tropico 5 will drop players into the role of El Presidente, the leader of the island nation of Tropico. The twist in the new game is that the experience will begin during colonial times and follow the nation as it develops through the ages and adapts to the changing world. While the PS4 version will certainly be an exciting addition to the game’s release plans, it’s worth noting that Kalypso’s announcement includes no mention of any planned Xbox One edition. It will be curious to see if one eventually surfaces or if Tropico 5 will remain a last generation experience for Xbox fans.
