Tropico 5 Coming to PS4


It was already known that the next entry of the ever-popular city building franchise, Tropico 5, was coming to PC, MAC, Linux and Xbox 360, but now another system can be added to the list of those that will see a release.

Kalypso Media has announced that Tropico 5 will be released on the PlayStation 4. The confirmation came via a press release on Thursday morning.

“We have been evaluating many new and exciting development opportunities for the Tropico brand and by bringing Tropico 5 to PlayStation 4 we open a new chapter in the history of the game,” the release said. “By taking full advantage of the PlayStation 4’s processing power the island of Tropico and El Presidente have never looked better.”

The release also confirmed the addition of multiplayer to the game. Although no other details regarding the feature were announced, up to four players will now be able to work either co-operatively or competitively.

Tropico 5 is expected to launch later this year.

Mike’s Musings: Now this is something I can sink my teeth into. The Tropico series has always been one of my favorites since I began playing games as a child. Now with it coming to the PS4, I may never have to leave my couch again. I’ll just bring my laptop or tablet to the couch, and write articles from there while I play. Oh the fun I shall have!
