Tropico 5 will launch on PC on May 23rd, with a retail release to follow on May 27th. It's just the first platform Kalypso Media's strategy game will onslaught this year.

Following the PC release will be Xbox 360 and Mac versions, available this summer. Afterwards, the game will hit PS4 in autumn. Finally, a Linux/SteamOS version will be available once Steam Machines are released.

Alongside today's announcement, Kalypso Media has launched the official website for the game, which features new videos and "inspiring speeches" from El Presidente.

New to Tropico 5 are dynasties, allowing players to take control of Tropico during early colonial times and guide it "through the centuries." As you play through the years, you must promote members of your extended family, making sure that your bloodline continues to reign supreme on the island. You can watch the latest gameplay video here:

      I think I still have Tropico 3 in my Steam game list. I never even installed it.

      Is that supposed to be 'X Box One', or is it not coming out for that system?

        I was thinking that same thing. That's kind of strange to see PC, PS4 and Xbox 360!

        If I wanted to start preaching doom and gloom....

        As much as I liked 3, I'm also on this boat of wanting a new one. At least a major reworking of the garage system.

      I love me some Tropico, and I love me some Crusader Kings, but I'm really uncertain about adding Crusader Kings dynasty/bloodlines stuff to Tropico.

      So excited for this - I've loved all the Tropico games. I hope after this one they go back to the pirate setting from Tropico 2. I loved building ships and sending them out on raids, capturing poor plantation workers to slave away on my island, etc.
