The Tropico series, which launched in April 2001, celebrates its 20th anniversary with Xbox Deals with Gold. Tropico 1 through 6 puts the player in the shoes of ‘El Presidente,’ the ruler of Tropico – a fictional island country in the Caribbean from the colonial era to modern times. Without question, it’s the series that put the tongue firmly in the cheek of strategy gaming.
In Tropico, you decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power in the best traditions of a corrupt, unscrupulous tyrant, or lead your people to prosperity as a generous elder statesman. Danger lurks around every corner and, in the background, loom other superpowers like the USA and the Soviet Union or China and others.
20 Year History
We launched Tropico as a fresh feel for the strategy game genre, swapping the drab and industrial feel of most management games of the time for something more akin to a tropical holiday.
Tropico on Xbox
Tropico 3 was the series’ first foray onto a console and at the time, the obvious pick was Xbox 360. Over the years, we evolved the series and Tropico 6, our latest game, released in 2019. Unlike previous games in the series, where Tropico consisted of only one island, Tropico 6 allows players to build their empire atop an archipelago via connecting bridges.
Tropico 6’s add-on, Caribbean Skies, launched in December of last year for Xbox One. In this high-stakes airborne adventure, players guide Tropico through five brand-new campaign missions, deploying a veritable fleet of minions and drones all the while striking deals with an eclectic cast of characters. Help the beloved dicta…uh, leader, El Presidente, save the world and make the Caribbean skies your playground!
As Tropico’s El Prez cuts a few cigars and knocks back his umpteenth rum of the morning, you too can join in the festivities with a barrage of free new content — including a Pinata llama hunt — and more! Just jump into Tropico 6 between April 20 and May 5, sit back, and enjoy the fun!
