Today, Kalypso Media released a new trailer for Tropico 6. Tropico 6 is a city-building experience but you take on the role of a hilarious dictator. Influencing elections and lying to your constituents is just part of the job! Tropico 6 is currently scheduled for a 2018 release on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.

According to the publisher, the trailer has been "unleashed upon the brainwashed masses by the Tropican Ministry of Propaganda and Misinformation". This video gives gamers everywhere a quick look at the new features coming to the dictator simulator.

In times of political turmoil and social unrest, people are calling out for a visionary leader, one who will steer the fate of their country with foresight and ingenuity. Tropico 6 requires you to prove yourself once again as a feared dictator or peace-loving statesman on the island of Tropico. The goal is to shape the fate of your nation through four distinctive eras. You'll face new challenges in an international arena but you have to keep the interests of your people in mind at all times.

For the first time in the series, you'll be able to manage extensive archipelagos, build bridges to connect your islands, and use new means of transportation. This seems like a significant overhaul compared to Tropico 5. The best part is that you can send your citizens on raids to steals the Wonders of the World like the Eiffel Tower!

  • Is it based on Donald..
  • Nope. Actually the opposite. DT has given powers back to Congress (ex. DACA), lessen the regulation burdens the government hold on private companies/citizens, defending the second ammendent that was designed to prevent tyranical governments, etc, etc. It more like Obama or any other 21st century socialist. 
  • Tropico's roots are more based in Cold War politics than current events. That being said, 4 and 5 really tried to modernize the game a bit (Globalism, telecommunications/Internet, EU/China, ACC, etc.)
