Kalypso also reveal an "extensive Steam OS" version is in the works. They've also launched a new website where they'll start releasing new info and media.
In Tropico 5 we start in the colonial era and guide our tropical paradise through the centuries as the world changes around us. Our legacy survives through our dynasty.
"You must tackle the changing needs of your people, as well as opposing governments and factions, and thus lay the foundations for your own dynasty. As you move through your years in office you can promote members of your extended family on the island to positions of power: such as ambassador, commanding general or even Supreme Ruler, to ensure your legacy thrives through the eras."
All-new trading mechanics, technology, scientific research and exploration feature in Tropico 5. There's also co-operative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players for the first in the series history.
Tropico 5 releases on PC May 23rd, Xbox 360 in summer and PS4 in autumn.
