App Store and Mac/SteamOS users can enjoy cross-platform multiplayer with all Tropico players
This just in from the Tropican Department of Information: Tropico 5 is now available for Mac & SteamOS via Steam and the Mac App Store! Starting today, Mac & SteamOS users can now visit the island paradise of Tropico in the award-winning dictator sim. Tropico 5. Embrace your inner dictator and begin your dynastic rule as El Presidente, carefully plotting, coercing and glad-handing your way to complete control of the Tropican isle, all while laying the framework of continued rule through the Eras with the all-new Dynasty System. Take a break from the everyday rigours of dictatorship to increase your wealth and influence by building farms, rigging elections, or dabbling in international trade. While the despotic possibilities are endless, so is the humour in the fifth instalment of the Tropico series.
The App Store version of Tropico 5 features cross-platform multiplayer, allowing Mac users to play and compete with Tropico fans everywhere. The Mac/SteamOS Steam versions feature cross-platform multiplayer via SteamPlay, as well as Full Controller and Big Picture Mode support. Plus, if you’ve already bought Tropico 5 PC for Steam, then you can download the Mac/SteamOS edition for absolutely free via Steam cross-buy! For console players, Tropico 5 will be available for the Xbox 360® this November, and the PlayStation®4 version will be coming in early 2015.
Tropico 5 for Mac & SteamOS is available now for purchase via Steam and the Mac App Store. For more information on the game, don’t forget to visit the official Tropico 5 website at http://www.worldoftropico.com.
About Tropico 5:
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!
