Tropico 4 Expands in March

Kalypso announces Tropico 4: Modern Times, an upcoming expansion for Tropico 4, the island dictator simulation. This is expected in March, and will add a number of modern problems to the game: "The times are changing and the island nation of Tropico is evolving. The Internet, a New World Order, terrorists, global financial markets and space exploration are on the rise and pose new challenges to El Presidente and his regime in Tropico 4: Modern Times." Here's a trailer, and here's a feature list:

  • Make Tropico fit for the 21st century: Evolve the island from the Cold War era to modern times and even into the future
  • 30 new buildings become available as time progresses, including condos, skyscrapers, organic ranches and biofarms. Replace obsolete buildings with these modern and inspiring designs.
  • Upgrade old buildings to new variants – modernized apartment buildings, banks, museums and much more
  • 10 new edicts allow even more control over your citizens’ lives. Block or limit citizens’ Internet use, create a police state or be a “good guy” and launch the Festival of Love edict.
  • New single player campaign comprised of 12 comprehensive scenario missions. Protect Tropico from unseen and sinister forces.

Awesome news!

Tropico 4, despite the average reviews, is an incredibly replayable and highly engaging game. I was a bit disappointed that the campaign mode repeated the same maps, even with the same resource placement, but the storyline keeps it entertaining and you never seem to end up building the same island twice - plus the campaign isn't even required playing. The problem I find is that it doesn't seem to allow you to expand quickly, even if you have the resources - even with hospitals and clinics set to obstetrics, immigration to open and a ban on contraception I still struggle with 100% employment. Despite having 300,000 in the bank I can't do anything, other than buying in specialists at ever increasing prices.

If you have an interest in strategy games or simulations - like Civilization, Anno, Sim City, etc - then I highly recommend it.
