The lights are on
Kalypso Media and developer Haemimont Studios have announced that the long-ruling despot is coming to the PS4.
Tropico 5 adds four-player multiplayer (co-op and competitive), the ability to continue play through history up to modern times (thanks to a family lineage), new scientific research trees, and more.
The game is also coming out for the Xbox 360, PC, Linux, and Mac some time this year. Kalypso isn't saying whether the PS4 version will be simultaneously released alongside the other versions; stating that a release date would be announced in "due course."
For more on the game, here's the first teaser trailer.
Our Take:Kalypso hasn't said that this PS4 version is a console exclusive, so we hope that Xbox One fans will also get to wield island power soon.
