One strategy game that actually works very well on console is Tropico 5, so the folks at Kalypso Media figured they'd take the game to the Playstation 4. This will be the first time that the series has come to the Playstation platform, and is set to take advantage of the features of the Playstation 4 hardware and controller.
Tropico 5 will come with a variety of new gameplay features, and all new art that has been reworked to provide the game with a distinct historic visual identity so that as you play through the centuries you won’t simply be using the same old tired buildings.
The largest of the changes to the game however is dynasties, now they aren't going all Crusader Kings on the series, however the great El Presidente will take control of the infamous island of Tropico during the early colonial times, which can then be guided through the centuries as the world moves forwards.
To ensure that your legacy thrives you’ll need to promote members of your extended family to positions of power in order to lay the foundations of your dynasty, after all, surely El Presidente can’t survive two World Wars, the Great Depression, and the Cold War to modern times?
Tropico 5 will also include advanced trading mechanics as you amass a global trade fleet and use your ships to secure routes to neighbouring islands, this is alongside a wealth of new research options, allowing you to advance your nation through the ages. On top of all that Tropico 5 will be the first in the series to feature up to 4 player cooperative and competitive multiplayer on any given island map, which will require a lot more exploring than you are used to.
Tropico 5 has not yet been given a release date, but I'm sure we can expect to see one by anytime soon. Tropico 5 is set to release on Windows PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox 360 and now Playstation 4.
