In Tropico 4, El Presidente returns to the island of Tropico, and this time, he's bringing new enemies and allies along for the ride, as he fights to turn his little island into a superpower.

Tropico 4 sees players return to the Caribbean paradise of Tropico, challenging them to turn the backwater island into a global superpower, be it through financial or forceful means! Will you play as a man of the people? Or as a jackbooted dictator with the goal of increasing your Swiss bank account? It’s up to you! New buildings, import/export features, global superpowers to deal with and much more will make El Presidente’s return to Xbox 360 an experience gamers won’t want to miss.

Tropico 4 sees you return as El Presidente, the tyrannical (or benevolent) dictator of the island paradise of Tropico. The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times – geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers – and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your Swiss bank account.

Tropico 4 features all new missions across new maps and includes exciting and fun new features to keep the action fresh and challenging. You can even elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial decisions passed through the government. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda!

A glorious virtual future awaits all citizens of Tropico!

Feral Interactive announced its first foray into VR gaming, with Kalypso Media’s city builder and political sim Tropico releasing for Meta Quest on March 28, 2024.
