Tropico 5 Announced For PS4

Tropico 5 is set to be the first entry in the series to appear on Sony consoles, when it releases on PS4 later this year.

Until now, the game had only been listed for PC, Mac and Xbox 360. Curiously, today's announcement didn't include confirmation of a next-gen Xbox version.

Multiplayer has also been confirmed for the upcoming game. Up to four players will be able to work co-operatively or competitively, though no details were disclosed other than that.

Only played T4. I liked it. Very charming, and the soundtrack is great.

I wonder if the X1 is getting it eventually. 720P. Greatness awaits.

Neat. Fun game series.

Great games but I really do hope they step it up when porting to consoles. Tropico 3 & 4 were buggy as hell on the 360, I remember 3 having a save file corrupting glitch that was very common and never got patched.

I own 3 and 4, but have yet to play them.

Tropico's soundtrack always gets me soaked.

Cows begging for more PC games...

Pfff yeah if it was the other way round it would be another PC begging thread.

Looking forward to it very much! Although I will be getting it on Steam... Couldn't imagine playing this type of game with a controller.

It's not begging when a game gets announced and people are excited for it. Creating petitions on the other hand...

I never played the other tropic games. Is this basically just civilization?

No, it's closer to simcity or the Caesar games

I played Tropcio 4 and it got boring after a while

I have no interest in this, but more choices is always good thing.

When XBox abandons gaming, gaming abandons XBox.

If this means more strategy games on consoles I'll buy a copy even if I have a PS4 by then or not.

I might have to pick this up for my PS4. Looks like it could be an interesting time sink.

Yeah it is.

No it really isn't. Showing that there are members of a community willing to support a product is not the same as begging

showing support=/= begging.

now if you're making a petition to demand that a game stays on a platform..
