Kalypso Media has announced that Tropico 4 will be released on the Xbox 360 on October 18th.  Released not too long ago on the PC, Tropico 4 will see players returning to Tropico and challenging them to turn the backwater island into a global superpower, no matter what it takes.  So far, the game has received positive reviews according to Metacritic, so it'll be interesting to see if the Xbox 360 version has the same success.

Ridgewood, NJ, October 6, 2011 - Kalypso Media USA is pleased to announce that El Presidente will be making his triumphant return to the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft on October 18 with the release of Tropico 4. Tropico 4 sees players return to the Caribbean paradise of Tropico, challenging them to turn the backwater island into a global superpower, be it through financial or forceful means! Will you play as a man of the people? Or as a jackbooted dictator with the goal of increasing your Swiss bank account? It’s up to you! New buildings, import/export features, global superpowers to deal with and much more will make El Presidente’s return to Xbox 360 an experience gamers won’t want to miss.

Tropico 4 sees you return as El Presidente, the tyrannical (or benevolent) dictator of the island paradise of Tropico. The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times – geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers – and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your Swiss bank account.

Tropico 4 features all new missions across new maps and includes exciting and fun new features to keep the action fresh and challenging. You can even elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial decisions passed through the government. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda!
