Tropico 4

You've heard about the PC Gamer Club, right? You know, the membership programme we launched earlier this year that nets members a digital subscription to PC Gamer magazine, monthly game keys, ad-free-browsing on this site, and more. More information can be found via our Club FAQ. 

Anyway, this month's PC Gamer Club game is Tropico 4. This cult favourite series sees you become El Presidente, and run an island state however you see fit. It has enhanced diplomacy options over its predecessor, and is generally considered a better game than Tropico 3. "Growing bananas and rigging elections remains remarkably entertaining" is what Tim Stone said in his original review of Tropico 4 from a few years back. Now it's yours to own. Enjoy. 

This game comes courtesy of retailer Bundle Stars and Kalypso Media, who also publish skyscraper construction and management sim Project Highrise, which has Very Positive user reviews on Steam. You play the role of an architect and developer, building world renowned skyscrapers that are the envy of every major city. That game's available now.

And, for even more Tropico action, you might like to check out Bundle Stars' Nemesis 3 Bundle. It includes Tropico 5, Facerig, the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Trilogy and Styx: Master of Shadows.  

Sign up forms for the PC Gamer Club can be found in this direction. 

Tropico 4 - Unerde


Make Tropico bigger, better and even greater than ever before on PC and consoles in 2018

In times of political turmoil and social unrest, the people are calling out for a visionary leader, one who will steer the fate of their country with foresight and ingenuity. Kalypso Media is thrilled to announce El Presidente’s glorious return in Tropico 6, launching on Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in 2018. Prove yourself once again as a feared dictator or a peace-loving statesman on the island state of Tropico and shape the fate of your nation through four distinctive eras. Face new challenges on the international stage and always keep the needs of your people in mind, in spite of any negative press covfefe.

Tropico 6 represents a bold new lease of life for the much-loved series, with new developer Limbic Entertainment bringing exciting new ideas to El Presidente’s highly-polished table, as well as a stunning new engine developed in Unreal Engine 4. For the first time in the series, manage extensive archipelagos, build bridges to connect your islands and establish new means of transportation and infrastructure. Send your agents on raids to steal the wonders of the world, including the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. Customize your palace at will and give election speeches from your balcony, to win the favour of your subjects. Tropico 6 is the biggest, most beautiful and most ambitious entry in the series’ history, with many more exciting features to be announced in the coming weeks and months.

Fellow Tropicans,

As a man of the people, El Presidente is always happy to bring the true Tropico experience to a larger audience and has therefore added Mac support for Tropico 4 on Steam! Penultimo and his gang have teamed up with the talented folks at Feral Interactive to bring you this technological marvel. No llamas were harmed in the process!

In true SteamPlay fashion, all owners of Tropico old and new will gain immediate access to another platform to enjoy El Presidente at no extra cost!

Happy ruling!

Tropico 5 doesn’t deviate far from the series’ blueprint – real-time city-building on an initially low-tech, low-wealth Caribbean island, with you playing the role of a cartoonish dictator who’s as benign or malign as you care to be, now with a revamped campaign mode and added multiplayer.

I’ve spent a big chunk of this week with it, and have now left its sun-kissed beaches and mouldering tenements to bring you the following report. If it matters, I skipped Tropico 4 so can’t tell you anything about how it compares to that.> … [visit site to read more]

Hi guys!

As some of you may have noticed, there was a small update for Tropico 4 on the 28th of April 2014. Just to eradicate any confusion: This update was solely to address an issue with the korean version of the game and should not really bring any changes to other language versions. Sorry for not addressing this in time.

If you happen to have any problems or see irregularities after the patch, please contact us at support@kalypsomedia.com

Many greetings,
Chris
