Tropico 5 PS4 Version Has Been Delayed to Early 2015
The construction and management simulation game, Tropico 5 has been generally well received on its release to PC; but for some reason I think the developers are not really ready to test the waters with the Tropico 5 PS4 version. We say that because apparently the publisher Kalypso Media has delayed it until 2015.
Recently, the Xbox 360 version of the game was also delayed to November 2014 although it was supposed to come out this summer.
As a consolation, the developer had announced that the Xbox 360 version would include the first downloadable content pack ‘The Big Cheese’ for free. Same goes for the PC version’s retail copy.
If that is the rate, I think the Tropico 5 PS4 version should come with at least half the DLC in the season pass.
People know Tropico as a dictatorial city building and management simulation. Tropico 5 has been developed by Haemimont Games who have been at the helm of the development since Tropico 3.
The game takes you back to the colonial era and then takes you through the WWII, the cold war and finally the present. The game lets you draw up the complete constitution of your country too!
Interestingly, Tropico 5 was recently banned in Thailand for the fear that it contained elements that could ‘affect peace and order in the country.’ I didn’t know games could do that.
The Microsoft Windows version of the game was released on May 23, 2014 while the OS X and Linux versions followed in today i.e. September 19, 2014. The Tropico 5 PS4 version was also supposed to release in the last quarter of this year, sadly it looks like that is not going to happen.
