Tropico 5 PS4 release date announced

This is when the Dictator ships.

Strategy game Tropico 5 launches on PlayStation 4 on 24th April, publisher Kalypso has announced.

There's a Limited Edition of the island paradise city-builder, briefly detailed in the video, below. It includes The Big Cheese DLC and the Bayo Del Olfato sandbox map, plus an official Tropican passport and postcard.

Tropico 5 is the first game in Haemimont's strategy series to appear on a PlayStation console, and the PS4 version follows the release of the PC and Xbox 360 versions in 2014.

In it you play bearded despot El Presidente and rule over the small banana republic of Tropico located in the Caribbean. You can be voted out of power, so you have to keep yourself in government while managing your people.

The PS4 version maps management controls to the controller, so hopefully it shouldn't feel too fiddly. The visuals are 1080p resolution and 30 frames per second. Remote Play with PlayStation TV and Vita works, too.
