Test your persuasive powers as El Presidente.

Worms / Bracknell / Baltimore 24th July 2009

Some of us have the gift of oratory, others not– now is your chance to see how you measure up against the great speakers of our time. Your task will be to gain favour from your voters– when you create your speeches as El Presidente.

El Presidente’s Speech Feature:

• Speeches are held before elections and are a great tool to sway some voters in your favor.

• When a speech is created, El Presidente (the player) outlines the general directions of the speech (what problems to address, which faction or superpower to praise, what promises to make). His secretary creates the speech from these notes.

• Some parts of the speeches are automatically generated according to the political context of the election. For example in a country leaning towards communism, Presidente may address his people as "comrades".

• If the player doesn't keep his election promises, he will bear consequences later.

• El Presidente is also able to praise himself in his speeches.

Tropico 3 will be available from September 2009 on Xbox 360 and PC, for more information, screenshots and the teaser trailer please visit the official game website www.tropico3.com.
