The strategy game Tropico 5: Penultimate Edition is now available for the Xbox One, and ships with two DLCs originally released for PC, “The Big Cheese” and “Hostile Takeover”, alongside five maps exclusively rolled out for the console.

The fifth installment in the series returns to the remote island nation of Tropico. This hugely popular dictator sim gives you the task of expanding your dynasty’s reign from the early colonial period to beyond the 21st century. Along the way, you will face a new set of challenges that include advanced trading mechanics, technological and scientific research, exploration, and multiple multiplayer modes. Stay alert and keep everything under control as you advance through the game while putting your expansion strategies into practice.

You will start your reign during colonial times and will have to survive the World Wars and the Great Depression if you want your nation to advance. You can appoint your family member to various functions so they can act as rulers, managers, ambassadors, or generals since your extended family are all present on the island.

Your nation’s success depends on three main pillars: research, innovation and trade. Advance your nation by discovering new buildings, technologies, and resources. These are the elements that provide your nation with the necessary foundation to advance through the eras.

The trade system and trade fleet allow you to gather more resources to fuel your research and construction plans. Build a global trade fleet and use your ships to secure trade routes to neighboring islands.

Tropico 5 is a great, addictive strategy game you can buy from the Xbox Store for $49.99. Speaking of strategy games, you can also try out the new Civilization VI, out now.
