Tropico 5 has been announced to be released later this year for the Xbox 360. Tropico 5 places the player in the role of El Presidente on the island of Tropico, and it is up to you to decide what kind of ruler you are going to be to the good people of the island. Tropico 5 starts in the colonial times and ages all the way through to the 21st century. As you move through the years of ruling Tropico, you can promote the members of your extended family into different positions of power; such as- ambassador, commanding general or even Supreme Ruler. Will you be able to survive both World Wars, the Great Depression, and the Cold War? And will you be able to lead your island into the modern times without hesitation?
There is plenty of new and advanced trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees and island exploration. This is the first game of the series that has cooperative and competitive multiplayer game modes.
The Tropico 5 beta test is scheduled to start sometime this month!
