Tropico 6 Gets New Gameplay Trailer; Game To Be Showcased at GDC 2018


Tropico 6 is still scheduled to launch this year on PC (Windows/Mac OS/Linux), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, publisher Kalypso Media confirmed today in a press release. We also got a brand new gameplay trailer (embedded below), which proves that the dictator simulation game never looked as good as it does now with Unreal Engine 4.

Tropico 6 is the first franchise entry to be developed by German studio Limbic Entertainment, known for Might & Magic Heroes VI, Might & Magic X: Legacy and Might & Magic Heroes VII.
