Times are changing: Great powers come and go, and new global players dominate the world market. Even "El Presidente" has to face the challenges - if you want to triumph over the skeptics and naysayers, you have to secure the support of your people. Your decisions will determine the fate of your nation and - even more important - the size of your foreign bank account.
Tropico 4 offers you extended political opportunities as well as additional superpowers whose favor you can and must compete for. Also, you now have the choice of appointing your ministers or a military junta to enforce the more "controversial" plans. But always remember: Keep your friends close, but your enemies even closer! Your political zeal will be tested with new natural disasters: Volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, and floods are making your people long for your protective hand against the displeasure of Mother Nature. In interactive sequences, you try to contain the effects of these catastrophes and coordinate the deployment of rescue teams in real-time. The new buildings in Tropico 4, such as the stock exchange, a shopping mall, and the ministry, as well as a wide range of new tourist attractions, offer numerous new interaction possibilities and unprecedented freedom in building your Caribbean empire.
