Tropico Expansion Pack for Mac?
9:16 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

A few days ago, PopTop Software announced that the Paradise Island expansion pack for Tropico, the popular Caribbean dictator simulation, would be released on the PC on February 5th. The pack adds new features to the game, creating new powers and problems for "El Presidente" as the player dictates an island country’s diplomatic, developmental, and political fate.

IMG contacted PopTop's Phil Steinmeyer about when we could expect a Mac version of the expansion pack. Steinmeyer offered this response:

It will probably happen, time frame is May/June...
Tropico: Paradise Island expands the Tropico world by offering these features:
  • 23 new scenarios
  • 12 all-new buildings
  • Four new tourists to lure to Tropico (and boats to match)
  • Natural disasters, including storms and diseases
  • More edicts to enforce your will
  • New dictator attributes
  • Game play enhancements, including high score details, full view of buildings, and faster construction
  • Another hour of that great Tropico music you love, made by the same outstanding musicians who made the original music, for a total of over two hours of playtime
This is great news for fans of the original game released last summer by MacSoft. We'll keep you posted on further developments as they become available.
