Tropico 5 has today been confirmed to be heading to PlayStation 4, alongside the previously announced Xbox 360, Windows PC, Mac and Linux releases later this year.
Haemimont Studios’ Tropico 5 is the next instalment of the critically acclaimed dictator-sim come city-builder series, and will feature a host of new gameplay ideas, including for the first time ever, co-operative and competitive multiplayer modes.
Fans of the series will be pleased to hear that the PlayStation 4 version of the game is said to “take full advantage of the unique features of the PlayStation®4 hardware and controller”.
“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” said Stefan Marcinek, Global Managing Director, Kalypso Media. “By taking full advantage of the PlayStation®4’s processing power the island of Tropico and El Presidente have never looked better.”
There’s currently no word as to whether Tropico 5 will be coming to Xbox One, or PlayStation 3.
