I did a search and found a couple of comments in a thread last spring about this game:
but no thread, so: here we go! A thread for all things Tropico 6, from anticipation to emancipation to constitutional declarations to and strategizations to final capitulations!
Release date is now given as January 2019 and the Steam beta has been open since last month for people who pre-paid (not me).
It was 4 years ago that I finished my last game of Tropico 5, so I just installed it again last night, figuring I’d play a couple of games before it’s obsoleted (still a ton of fun).
But the new game: wow! A bunch of cool-sounding new features, not least the introduction of archipelagos and multi-island empires!
Also it says there will be a more intricate transportation system, which could be cool as long as I don’t have to micro-manage anything (the series seems to be pretty good about that, tho).
Raiding parties, a new research system…
I liked T5 quite a bit, so I hope these are genuine improvements and not just bells & whistles.
This El Presidente is ready to lead the glorious revolution to bring liberty, freedom and prosperity to the good people of Flagrante Delicto! Bring on Tropico 6!
