Tropico 4 teaser video unveiled

Kalypso Media has unveiled the first trailer for Tropico 4, an upcoming city builder/strategy game currently in development for the PC and Xbox 360. The latest game in the Tropico series sees players resume their reign as El Presidente, the iron-fisted ruler of the small island of Tropico.

According to Kalypso Media, “Tropico 4 will challenge players to negotiate with new global super powers, while dealing with interactive natural disasters and pushing through their own edicts via the new national council features. With 20 new missions spread over 10 new maps, players will spend dozens of hours crafting an island paradise, while sharing their successes via Twitter and Facebook.”

Tropico 4 expands on the gameplay of the previous game with new political additions – including more superpowers to negotiate with, along with the ability to elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial policies passed. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda! Your political mettle will be thoroughly tested, as new natural disasters will have the populace clamoring for you and your cabinet to help them recover from some of the worst Mother Nature can dish out.

Tropico 4 also brings a new level of social interaction with the addition of Facebook and Twitter integration (Windows PC version only). Post comments on Twitter direct from the game and have updates go out when you complete missions or unlock new achievements. You can even take screenshots of your burgeoning island and post your dream creation on your Tropico 4 Facebook page and compare your interactive Dictator Ranking on the online leaderboards.

Tropico 4 is currently in development by Haemimont Games and is scheduled for release in August 2011.
