Tropico 5: Surf's Up DLC Releases Today; Don't Panic

The Tropico 5: Surf's Up DLC releases today for the PC and Mac, packed with Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy references.


If you're suffering from the nagging sense that your tropical island nation is missing a certain Douglas Adams flair, then worry no more. The Tropico 5: Surf's Up DLC releases today for the PC and Mac. As an obvious homage to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, an alien race seeks to build an intergalactic highway straight through Tropico. In order to save it, El Presidente has to work with the wise dolphins in order to save his nation from certain destruction.

The Surf's Up DLC goes for $3.99, and features include a Dolphinarium, the Qualichi Island map to tackle in sandbox mode, and a professional looking marine biologist outfit. It is known at this time if, when all is said and done, how many Hitchhiker references there will be or if everything will culminate with a note reading, "So long, and thanks for all the fish." However, there is a chance you might stumble on the answer to life, the universe, and everything.
