'The Supercomputer' DLC for Tropico 5 out now

Master new technologies and lead your nation into a new age!

Bracknell, UK, 25th June, 2015 – Knowledge is power. No one knows this better than El Presidente, who leaves no stone unturned in his quest to position Tropico as a leader in the world of technological progress. And, as any media or educational establishment on Tropico will tell you, no one has more knowledge than El Presidente! Kalypso Media invites you to join our illustrious leader in guiding Tropico towards a new age of technological superiority with the new Tropico 5 DLC ‘The Supercomputer’.
Together with the support of the brightest scientists in all of Tropico, you must build the biggest and most efficient supercomputer in the world in order to research new technology faster than your rival nations and find the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. In the new mission ‘The Supercomputer’, you will be required to conduct research faster than your competitors so that you can keep your technological dominance on the worldwide stage.
Check out a selection of screenshots for Tropico 5 ‘The Supercomputer’ for a look at the new features on offer. Alongside the impressive new Supercomputer building, well-dressed dictators can now sport a fancy set of headphones that almost certainly sacrifice audio and build quality for looks and street-credibility. If you’re getting a little tired of your current city, you can also try your hand at the brand new ‘Cabao’ sandbox map, complete with vast sandy shores and dramatic Cliffside vistas.
