El Presidente’s island fiefdom is moving into a new era with the release of Tropico 4: Modern Times for PC. The $29.99 expansion includes a new 12-scenario campaign, 10 new edicts, 30 new buildings, and upgrades for older buildings.
El Presidente has looked out on his island fiefdom and decided that it’s missing the kind of relaxing scenery only available through the heavy use of concrete. Nothing says tropical paradise like soul-crushing gray. And today he’ll get the chance to make his vision come to life with the Quick Dry Cement DLC pack for Tropico 4. The 400 MS Point/$4.99 release, available for 360 and PC, adds a new Cement Factory building, which speeds up construction across the island; the Constructor character trait; a mission theme involving building an island-wide city; and numerous decorations, including a small park, flower bed, and constructor statue.
Kalypso has released some new shots from the upcoming Tropico 4 expansion, Modern Times. Set to launch in March for the 360 and PC for 1200 MS Points/$19.99, Modern Times leapfrogs the island nation to the modern today, where 30 new buildings, 10 new edicts, 12 new scenario missions, new upgrades, and this newfangled thing called the Internet await El Presidente’s attention. Aside from space stations, skyscrapers, biofarms, and festivals of love, the present also brings with it a new threat to the regime.
El Presidente hasn’t been in office long, and he is already expanding his offerings with a new DLC pack for Tropico 4, The Junta. The 400 MS Point/$4.99 pack will be available on November 9 on Live Marketplace for the 360, and a few days later, on November 11, on Steam as well as via the in-game Launcher for PC. The Junta will include the new Bunker building, the new Veteran character trait, a female Dress Uniform outfit, several new decoration items (Guard booth, Small observation tower, Camouflaged ammo depot, Concrete barricades, and APC), and the New Sparta mission theme.
Cities XL 2012 is launching tomorrow for download, but just in case its city-building wiles haven’t tempted you yet, some new shots have been sent for your viewing pleasure. We also included a few older ones for good measure.
It’s time to don the sweet aviators of El Presidente and rule over your very own Caribbean island. Tropico 4 is now available for the 360, giving would-be despots the chance to manage a city and its economy by dictating what’s to be built and where funds should be allocated, as well as govern its populace.
