Tropico 6 Released

Tropico 6 is now available for Windows and Linux following a couple of delays along the way. The management sequel is also coming to "soon" to macOS and will arrive on consoles this summer. This will allow players to once again strap on their boots and beards to take on the role of El Presidente, the sometimes benevolent dictator of the island paradise of Tropico. The news is accompanied by a release trailer with an overview of the game (including El Presidente's take on Bohemian Rhapsody) and video developer diary titled "Leading a franchise to greatness." Here's the announcement:

The wait is finally over, the borders are open and El Presidente welcomes you to visit the island paradise of Tropico. Kalypso Media and Limbic Entertainment are thrilled to announce that Tropico 6, the latest instalment in the critically acclaimed Tropico franchise, launches today globally for Windows PC and Linux (with the Mac version following soon).

With Penultimo busy grooming prize llama Hector for the Presidential parade to celebrate Tropico 6’s glorious launch, the loyal citizens over at Kalypso HQ have been busily editing El Presidente’s welcome trailer for your enjoyment. So click on the links below and take a sun-drenched trip along Tropico’s beautiful sandy beaches and almost dormant volcanos (there’s only a 65% chance of an eruption in the coming weeks) by clicking on the links below.

El Presidente is back! In times of political turmoil and social unrest, the people are calling out for a visionary leader, one who will steer the fate of their country with foresight and ingenuity. Prove yourself once again as a feared dictator or peace-loving statesman on the island state of Tropico and shape the fate of your nation through four distinctive eras. Face new challenges on the international stage and always keep the needs of your people in mind.

For the first time in the series, manage extensive archipelagos, build bridges to connect your islands and use new means of transportation and infrastructure. Send your Tropicans on raids to steal the wonders of the world, including the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. Customize your palace at will and give election speeches from your balcony, to win the favor of your subjects.

Tropico 6 is released globally via digital platforms today for Windows PC and Linux (Mac to follow soon) and as a boxed retail edition across UK, Europe and export territories with the North American boxed edition releasing on 2nd April. Console versions are set to follow in summer 2019 on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

The first one was the best one. Then something happened. All the sequels sucked.

at this point, they are reaching near COD sequel-itis levels

Reminds me of the board room scene from Tron Legacy.

Alan Bradley: Excuse me?
Richard Mackey: Yes... Alan?
Alan Bradley: Given the prices we charge to students and schools, what sort of improvements have been made in Flynn... I mean, um, ENCOM OS-12?
Richard Mackey: This year we put a "12" on the box.

hopefully the pathing isnt as shocking. I skipped 5 as (tbh) it had lost its tropico roots. I might get 6 in a sale.  
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.

There's a real lack of information around how multiplayer / co-op works...

What in the dictatorship?! The visuals look nearly identical to Tropico 3 from 2009. What gives?

Because it's basically an engine remake of 5 (which was based on 4 which was based on 3) which all had severe engine issues and outdated tech behind em.

So basically it's 3 done better, before all the stuff was added, with some removed and some added. Imo a better game as a whole although I loved the dynasty system...

Ps.: Also I think youtube makes it look like crap, the actual game doesn't look nearly as bad as 3

I have all 5 previous games, and yet somehow I have not played any of them. The backlog is real.
