Tropico 4 hits Xbox 360 on October 18

Kalypso's latest comes to Microsoft's console later this month; fourth installment in dictator sim to feature 20-mission campaign, new settings and buildings.

PC players have been playing dictator over Tropico 4's virtual Caribbean citizens since late August. Kalypso announced today that starting October 18, Xbox 360 players can start putting their iron fists to work as well.

Tropico 4 debuted on the PC in August.

Tropico 4 again puts the player on the isle of Tropico in the shoes of El Presidente, a role that allows for a wide range of power-wielding ways, from tyrannical to benevolent. As for additions to the series, the game will feature a full 20-mission campaign, as well as new environments and building types.

Kalypso is also expanding players' political options with the ability to appoint ministers to help pass less-popular decisions into law. Foreign powers are also at play this time around and can be dealt with in various ways, including assassination.

Don't have time to play it, even if I owned it. These strategy games take up a lot of time just to complete one mission. Can't believe this game made it to it's 4th installment.
