About Tropico 5

About this game

Return to the remote island nation of Tropico in the latest installment of the critically acclaimed and hugely popular ‘dictator sim’ series. With this Steam PC key, you'll expand your Dynasty’s reign from the early colonial period to beyond the 21st Century.

Face an all-new set of challenges including advanced trading mechanics, technology and scientific research, exploration and for the first time in Tropico history – cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players.

THE ERAS
Start your reign during colonial times, survive the World Wars and the Great Depression, be a dictator during the Cold War, and advance your country to modern times and beyond. From the 19th century to the 21st, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities.

THE DYNASTY
Each member of El Presidente’s extended family is present on the island and may be appointed as a ruler, a manager, an ambassador or a general. Invest in the members of your Dynasty to unlock new traits and turn them into your most valuable assets.

RESEARCH AND RENOVATE
Advance your nation by discovering new buildings, technologies and resources. Renovate your old buildings to more efficient modern buildings.

ADVANCED TRADE SYSTEM & TRADE FLEET
Amass a global trade fleet and use your ships to secure trade routes to neighboring islands or world superpowers, both for export and import.

EXPLORE YOUR ISLAND
Discover what lies beyond the fog of war. Find valuable resource deposits and explore the ruins of ancient civilizations.

ALL-NEW ART
All artwork has been re-designed from scratch to provide Tropico 5 with a unique visual identity. Choose from over 100 buildings from each of the individual eras.

CO-OP AND COMPETITIVE MULTIPLAYER
Up to 4 players can build up their own cities and economies on any given island map. Players can choose to share resources, supplies, and population or declare war on each other.

YOUR OFFICIAL TROPICO 5 STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • An island that is yours to shape as you see fit.
  • Island people to oppress or delight.
  • New buildings to please or annoy residents.
  • Global superpowers to appease or be conquered by.

Fun twist on city building and Linux nat
Verified purchase
A different kind of city building with elements of country management added in. It takes me longer to get bored of this game when compared to traditional city builders. I would also like to thank these developers for supporting Linux with releasing the game natively on Linux.

I love the Tropico series and I honestly think this is the worst so far. Terrible campaign, no explination on game mechanics, bugs, terrible controls and subpar graphics. Much better quality buying Tropico 4 or 6 instead of 5.

A quality city builder sandbox with the communist trappings that make this series a hit.

A quality city builder sandbox with the communist trappings that make this series a hit. The game's era system allows you to begin your reign during the colonial period and advance through to the modern age allows you to progress through some of modern histories important moments. Overall the game is worth the price and will provide plenty of entertainment.
