Kalypso Media has announced a September 19 release date for Tropico 5. The next installment of the dictatorial city-builder series is currently in development at Haemimont Studios and allows players to start their reign during colonial times and maintain control beyond the 21st century.

Loyal citizens and lovers of Tropico! The Tropican Department of Information has an important message from your beloved ruler El Presidente - Tropico 5 will be released for Mac & Linux on the 19th of September. In just a few weeks, Mac/Linux players can also visit the island paradise of Tropico, where the people don’t even have to think for themselves and the burden of voting is kindly relieved by the government. Get yourself a job in Tropico’s booming llama industry, admire quaint historical landmarks such as the Cold War era military base and relax on the beach with Tropico’s own take on the Manhattan – which contains absolutely no alcohol. The Mac/Linux version of Tropico 5 includes cross-platform multiplayer via SteamPlay, Full Controller and Big Picture Mode support. Plus, if you’ve already bought Tropico 5 for PC, then you can download the Mac/Linux edition for absolutely free via Steam cross-buy!

Take on the role of El Presidente in Tropico 5 for Mac & Linux this September and found your own city, build a powerful dynasty and rule across the eras. Or prove your dictator skills/team work (delete where applicable) in competitive and co-operative multiplayer.

Packed with a whole host of new gameplay features and all new artwork designed from scratch, Tropico 5 takes the series into a new and exciting direction – dynasties!

You, as El Presidente, will first take control of the infamous island of Tropico during early colonial times and then guide it through the centuries as the world changes and moves ever forward. You must tackle the changing needs of your people, as well as opposing governments and factions, and thus lay the foundations for your own dynasty. As you move through your years in office you can promote members of your extended family on the island to positions of power: such as ambassador, commanding general or even Supreme Ruler, to ensure your legacy thrives through the eras.

As well as a wealth of other new features, including advanced trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees and island exploration, Tropico 5 will add cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players for the first time in the series’ history! Viva El Presidente!

Tropico 5 is available to pre-order now for $39.99 (USD).
