It’s All About the Cheese in the First Tropico 5 DLC Pack – ‘The Big Cheese’ Available Now!  
Plus, latest update 1.04 adds save games to multiplayer and other fixes

Bracknell, UK, 24th July 2014 – Do you know El Presidente’s only weakness? His penchant for a good, ripe cheese of course! While his exclusively imported French speciality cheese may bring some short lived satisfaction, El Presidente wants more!  So he’s decided to open his very own artisan cheese factory in the first DLC pack for the hugely popular Tropico 5. ‘The Big Cheese’ DLC, available today, challenges players to create and promote an artisan cheese brand by introducing a new production chain with the Creamery: a new building that enables you to make the most of Tropico’s local goats and llamas. Face international competition in an epic quest to create the best cheese in the world and put on the chef’s hat! This add-on includes an all-new sandbox map and task, a standalone scenario including additional voiceovers, building, avatar accessory and music track!
Please Note: people who pre-purchased Tropico 5 via Steam will receive ‘The Big Cheese’ DLC for free as part of the pre-purchase tier reward bonus.
Tropico 5 Update 1.04 has also gone live today: adding save games to multiplayer so you can pause and carry on those extra-long political campaigns later. Check out the change log below for a full list of bug fixes, tweaks and additions. (Please note that the multiplayer game saves update is currently at Beta stage and will be fully implemented soon)
