Ridgewood, NJ, October 18, 2011 – Kalypso Media USA, Inc. is pleased to announce that Tropico 4 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft is now available in retail outlets throughout North America. Recently released to critical acclaim on Windows PC, Tropico 4 puts players in the role of El Presidente, the newly elected leader of the island of Tropico. Tasked with turning the island from a banana republic backwater into a global superpower, players will develop the island’s economy while dealing with global superpowers and the island’s citizens in a fine balancing act that will test players’ political, financial and social acumen. For more information about Tropico 4, which has won multiple “Editors’ Choice” awards on Windows PC, please visit http://www.worldoftropico.com.
Tropico 4 sees you return as El Presidente, the tyrannical (or benevolent) dictator of the island paradise of Tropico. The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times – geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers – and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your Swiss bank account.
Tropico 4 features all new missions across new maps and includes exciting and fun new features to keep the action fresh and challenging. You can even elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial decisions passed through the government. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda!
