TROPICO 3 KALYPSO MEDIA’S NEW STRATEGY GAME FOR PC AVAILABLE NOW
Populist or polarizing, it’s all possible with Tropico 3, a new strategy game for personal computers released today by Kalypso Media. The true sequel to the original best-seller, Tropico 3 lets players take the reigns of a small, but strategically positioned Caribbean island and challenges them to stay in power for more than 50 years. As the famed “El Presidente,” players ward off political opposition while choosing to either lead their country into peace and prosperity, or rule their banana republic through fear as a tyrannical dictator.
“We are thrilled to ship the true successor to Tropico and build upon the incredibly fun gameplay of the original, by adding exciting new elements that expand the Tropico universe,” said Deb Tillett, president of Kalypso Media USA. “With its new features, customization capabilities and modes, Tropico 3 delivers a game that far surpasses the expectations of its loyal fans, while introducing new gamers to a great strategy experience.”
Developed by Haemimont Games, Tropico 3 includes a robust set of new features, including a powerful new mission editor, an online challenge mode and a new avatar function that allows players to customize their own unique “El Presidente.” Once created, the new ruler is free to travel the island giving speeches, issuing edicts and exerting other means of influence. A comprehensive campaign mode features 18 different missions, while a historical timeline editor, new buildings, industries and infrastructure provide players with a wide array of options for hours of in-depth gameplay.
Tropico 3 is rated T for teen and is currently available at retail stores in North America for $39.99. For more information, screenshots and videos please visit the official game website www.tropico3.com
