El Presidente Has Taken Office on Consoles – Tropico 6 is Now Available on XB1 and PS4


Strategy gaming specialists Kalypso Media and Limbic Entertainment have today announced the digital release of Tropico 6 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The retail release will follow on October 8th.

Digitally, Tropico 6 is available on PlayStation 4 in both standard and ‘El Prez’ editions ($59.99 / $64.99), with the latter including an extra decoration for your palace and tourist outfits for El Presidente. On Xbox One, the game is available as a standard edition ($59.99), with those that purchased the game during the Game Preview period also gaining the extra palace decoration and tourist outfits.

At retail, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions come with four Tropican postcards, a digital soundtrack and calendar, priced at $59.99.

After a widely successful launch on PC, Kalypso Media and Limbic entertainment have spent a great deal of time working with the community, implementing changes, and rolling out a host of new features which will ensure Tropico 6 to be an even richer experience across all platforms.

On console, the game has been fully optimized for both the Dualshock 4 and Xbox One controller, and includes the ability to play cooperatively or compete, Prez v Prez, against up to three other players.

One of the most beloved city-building sims, Tropico 6 continues the series’ penchant for dark humor, in-depth mechanics, and buzzing Caribbean soundscapes whilst introducing a host of new features such as a fully customizable Presidential pad and the ability to make life tougher than it needs to be for a whole archipelago!

In March 2019, Tropico 6 was released for PC, earning over 6,000 (85%) positive reviews on Steam and over 250 positive press reviews.

Thanks to Unreal Engine 4 and developer, Limbic Entertainment, Tropico 6 shines on consoles, running in 30 FPS on first generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One units. On the Xbox One X and PlayStation Pro, Tropico 6 is able to kick things up a notch and runs at 60 FPS in full HD or 30 FPS in 4K.

All previous improvements and optimizations from the PC version are carried over – made possible by close co-operation with the community, as well as a lot of finetuning in development.

  • Four new traits for El Presidente
