Tropico 4 Steam Sale Takes Advantage of SimCity Downtime

As SimCity continues to struggle with online connectivity problems, the folks at Kalypso Media have taken advantage of the situation to put the entire Tropico series on a 75 percent discount on Steam.

Tropico and its sequels are city-building simulators, which unlike SimCity, do not require an always-online connection to play. The games see you in the role of a benevolent dictator not unlike Cuba’s Fidel Castro, and you’re tasked with the development of an island city.

If you’re struggling to play SimCity and would like to get your city-building fix until Maxis sorts out the issues with the game, now’s a great time as any to get Tropico 4. You can pick up the Tropico 4 Collector’s Bundle for $10 on Steam. The sale includes Tropico 4, which was released in 2011, along with all of its DLC.

The sale is expected to last until March 15.

Hmmm. I think this sounds like a great deal.
I think everyone should take advantage of this if they dont already have it.

They were successful, I reinstalled it, bought the DLC I didn’t have and also reinstalled SimCity 4.

No way am I buying SC5.

The only adequate president to govern Venezuela is one who can manage a full crisis in Tropico 4. Chavez couldn’t… his PC frequently crashed with SimCity 4.
