You may have thought that the Penultimate Edition of Tropico 5 was all you ever needed in a dictator sim. But then along came a number of additional DLC packs to enhance your experience, requiring a further, rather considerable, cash outlay. Now though, Tropico 5 – The Complete Collection is available, and it’s not just cheaper than buying the base game plus all the add-ons, it’s cheaper than the initial title itself…by a hefty old margin.
Available now on Xbox One, the Tropico 5 – Complete Collection will set you back just £31.99. Now that in itself may not seem super cheap, and we guess it isn’t, but if you factor in the Penultimate Edition being priced at £39.99, and the four available downloadable content packs each have a price of £6.39, you’re looking at a massive saving.
That’s because the Complete Collection brings together those four packs and the base game into one big bundle, making life easier, and giving those of us who haven’t yet dipped into the latest Tropico world the chance to do so.
In fact, we reckon there is no longer any excuse for not giving it a shot. The Xbox Games Store no doubt agrees.
With three extensive campaigns, 40 islands, over 125 buildings and 10 additional scenarios, this game collection will provide a great deal more than 100 hours of gaming fun on your Xbox One. The Eras – Begin your rule in colonial times, survive world wars and economic crises, ride out the Cold War, and lead your country towards a glorious future. From the 19th to the 21st century, each era will have its own surprises in store for you. The Dynasty – Members of your extended family live on the island and can be hired as rulers, managers, diplomats, or generals. Turn your family members into valuable resources. Research and Renovate – Modernize your nation with new buildings, technologies, and resources. Refurbish outdated structures to make sure that everything is state-of-the-art in your race against time. Cooperative and competitive multiplayer – Up to 4 players can build their own nations on a shared map and have the option of sharing resources, goods, and populations or declaring war on each other.
Is the coop mode any good?
