'Tropico 6' (ALL) Celebrates Franchise's 20th Anniversary With In-Game Content, Sale, And More

by Rainier on April 20, 2021 @ 3:50 p.m. PDT

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.

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

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 the developer (Limbic Entertainment at the time) 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.

Kalypso Media is bursting with pride to announce that tomorrow marks 20 years of its beloved, majestic, regal, and grandiose Tropico series! Every Tropican has taken to the streets celebrating, not revolting and even the ambassadors from other nations are partying in their prison cells!

With six entries under its belt, the series has come a long way and in the symphony of Tropico’s history, publisher Kalypso Media has humbly claimed an instrumental part. Beginning with Tropico 3, the strategy publisher reanimated the series after many years of slumber and brought it a new magnificence, most recently with Tropico 6.

To celebrate the jubilee, El Presidente has ordered new free content for Tropico 6, including a Piñata Llama hunt, new in-game decorations, fireworks and of course, a sparkly golden palace for the player's El Presidente or La Presidenta to call home. The celebrations are two-fold, as the publisher celebrates its own 15-year anniversary later this year. Kalypso Media was started in April 2006 with two employees. The company now employs 150 people in four countries.

The Tropico 6 in-game festivities kick off today and will be available until 5 May on PC (Steam), PS4 and Xbox One.

Of course, a celebration of this magnitude requires more than just free content, so Kalypso Media and El Presidente have also let loose a series of sales across the Kalypso Store, Steam, the Epic Games StorePlayStation Store, Microsoft Xbox ‘Deals with Gold’ and Nintendo eShop.

Over the coming weeks, Kalypso Media will also continue the celebrations with the launch of Kalypso Blog 2.0, populated with all the best development tidbits from Tropico’s past and present, as well as special articles celebrating the publisher’s own 15-year anniversary. 

Last but not least: join El Prez himself during a special Tropico 6 – Caribbean Skies live stream tomorrow at 10am PDT, and be sure to check out the Kalypso Live channel for new content every week.
