More On: Tropico 4
Have you always dreamed of being the ultimate spin-master, or failing that, director of an Orwellian Mini-love brainwashing taskforce? Kalypso's island dictatorship simulator Tropico 4 has you covered. The latest DLC pack, Propaganda, includes everything its name implies, allowing you to hire PR specialists and erect a brand new Propaganda Tower building. To be honest I'm surprised this feature hasn't shown up in Tropico 4 already. You can grab the new power of persuasion on Steam for $4.99, or on XBLA for 400 of the soon-to-be-extinct MS points.
New Tropico 4 DLC – Keep El Presidente in power with "Propaganda"
August 16, 2013, Ridgewood, NJ -  Loyal followers and Tropico 4 fans, El Presidente needs your help! The most glorious island of Tropico has been invited to participate in the International Communist Propaganda competition. Will you help guide our wise leader to victory in “Propaganda”, the new DLC for Tropico 4?

Turn the most absurd propaganda slogans into reality using the new Propaganda Tower building, then use it to suppress protesters and convert citizens to loyalists, or brainwash your people with the PR Specialist trait and ultimately ensure that the rule of El Prez endures! In addition, you can finally compete with the likes of Stalin and Lenin with the authority of the Party Leader outfit.
“Propaganda”, the new DLC for Tropico 4 is available to download now from Steam and the Xbox Live Marketplace for $4.99 USD or 400 Microsoft Points. 
Tropico 4 DLC “Propaganda” Features 
  • New building: Propaganda Tower (suppresses protests and converts citizens)
  • New trait: PR Specialist (journalists brainwash citizens to vote for El Presidente)
  • New outfit: Party Leader
  • New mission: The Communist Propaganda Competition 
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!
