Kalypso Media's Tropico 4
Kalypso has released a trio of new DLC packs for its Xbox 360/PC game Tropico 4.
Priced at 400 Microsoft Points each, these three DLC packs offer new missions, character costumes and character traits for everyone's favorite dictator -- El Presidente. The Megalopolis, Pirate Heaven, and Vigilante DLC packs are available from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 and offer players new ways to expand upon the much-loved city-builder, Tropico 4.
All three DLC packs are also available for Windows PC through digital retailers today.
With the Megalopolis DLC contents, players will be challenged to build the most expansive island cities. A new mission will challenge you to do just that. A new building, the Conventillo, offers cheap housing with plenty of room to spare, but degrades over time and has to be frequently repaired. Furthermore, the new bureaucrat trait lets players build cheaper residential buildings while earning more profits from the new "building permit" edict. This DLC also provides a new costume for El Presidente to don.
The Pirate Heaven DLC provides a new "Pirate Queen" outfit available for female avatars and lets players set sail for treasure, engaging in piracy to fill your Tropican coffers with loot. The DLC also adds new island defenses.
In the Vigilante DLC, El Presidente becomes a masked hero who protects the citizens of his island from criminals. A new building, the Labor camp, puts convicts to work for the betterment of the island. Also, a new character trait, the Alter Ego, reduces crime on the island while boosting tourism and impressing the Tropican nationals. Finally, a new costume, Zorro, allows El Presidente to become a masked hero to the people.
All three DLC packs require the core Tropico 4 game software to be played.
