As in the original Tropico, the player will again be able to play the role of “El Presidente” taking over the control of a tropical island. You decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power base in the best traditions of corrupt, unscrupulous tyrants everywhere, or alternatively to lead your people to prosperity in your role as generous elder statesman.
Danger lurks on every corner. There are militant rebels planning a Coup d'État for a communistic Junta, while in the background there are two lurking superpowers, the USA and the Soviet Union, who would perhaps prefer a more pliable president in the strategically important island of Tropico!
“We’re excited to expand into the North American market with a well-known and respected PC franchise,” said Simon Hellwig, Managing Director, Kalypso Media. “With a talented development team providing a fresh, creative approach to this fan favorite, we’re confident that Tropico 3 will hit the mark this September.”
The game will attract the fans of the Tropico series, as well as newcomers with state-of-the-art graphics, complex gameplay similar to the other titles in the series and a comprehensive multiplayer mode.
Kalypso's Tropico 3, developed by Haemimont Games, is scheduled for release Sept. 2009.
