today announced that Pirate Heaven
, a new Tropico 4
DLC (downloadable content), is available now through various digital portals and the Kalypso Launcher for £3.49/€3.99 and requires the original Tropico 4 for Windows PC. With this DLC, players can now ignore those pesky international blockades, importing goods via the new Smuggler's Hut building, and boost their naval power courtesy of the new "Sailor" character trait. As part of the new DLC, your minions will now be able to resort to piracy as a way of making quick money, though all that ship hijacking, ransoming, pillaging and plundering is sure to attract international attention (and ire), so you'll need to build up your defences to protect Tropico from invasion. Also, players can dress up their female avatars with the new "Pirate Queen" outfit, giving just a bit more flair to your in-game persona.
The Xbox 360 version of Tropico 4: Pirate Heaven DLC will be available later this year - six fresh screenshots
found their way in our gallery.
