Tropico 5
'Return to the remote island nation of Tropico in the next installment of the critically acclaimed and hugely popular 'dictator sim' series.' Expand your Dynasty's reign from the early colonial period to beyond the 21st Century, facing an all-new set of challenges, including advanced trading mechanics, technology and scientific research, exploration and for the first time in Tropico history -- cooperative and competitive MULTIPLAYER for up to 4 players.

• The Eras - Start your reign during colonial times, survive the World Wars and the Great Depression, be a dictator during the Cold War, and advance your country to modern times and beyond. From the 19th century to the 21st, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities.
• The Dynasty - Each member of El Presidente's extended family is present on the island and may be appointed as a ruler, a manager, an ambassador or a general. Dynasty members gain skills and experience based on their individual assignments.
• Research and Renovate - Advance your nation by discovering new buildings, technologies and resources. Renovate your old buildings to more efficient modern buildings.
• Advanced trade system and trade fleet - Amass a global trade fleet and use your ships to secure trade routes to neighboring islands or world superpowers, both for export and import.
• Explore your island - Discover what lies beyond the fog of war. Send prospectors to look for new deposits, but be wary of hostile animals and native tribes.
• All new art - All artwork has been re-designed from scratch to provide Tropico 5 with a unique visual identity. Choose from over 100 buildings from each of the individual eras.
• Cooperative and competitive multiplayer -- Up to 4 players can build up their own cities and economies on any given island map. Players can choose to share resources, supplies and population or declare war on each other.

Sounds quite interesting to me, hopefully it becomes more challenging than part 4... ;)

I suppose so... ;)

Also i'd like them to finally fix those Tropico 4 graphical glitches first... -_-

Really the cart before the horse situation there. Building the game around DLCs doesn't seem to be a sounds process, but what do I know. I only play games, I don't program 'em.

Kalypso's Tropico 4 team seems to still be doing T4 work, so official fixes should be easier to come by. Bethesda stopped all work on Skyrim to focus on other projects so that game is left with lots of major bugs, some that break the game.

It will be available on linux!

"Tropico 5 is currently in development by Haemimont Studios and will see a launch sometime in 2014 on xbox 360, PC, Mac and Linux."

At least the feature list sounds like it's a bigger improvement this time around. Sounds like your not only getting the Modern Times expansion in there from the start but also Colonial Era, and the Future. The Dynasty system also sounds intersting. And then....Multiplayer too?! Sounds like this one is actually going to be awesome.

One thing I hope is that the game is just more challenging this time around. Or has a harder mode.

Variable difficulty sure would be an asset. Some players want an easy game, others want a hard challenge.

co-op sounds fantastic :D and it's great to see that the modern times content will be included as well. I'm really curious to see what this world domination esque thing they are hinting at in the trailer is and how it works

Maybe a cross-over with XCOM Impossible Mode will make Tropico 5 spooky...

I'd love to see my country to be able to invade into someone's island or someone to invade mine, with my army fighting to the last man...

With armor forces and air forces. Tropicowargasm!
