Tropico 6 DLC Spitter released + GuaGua Update

Together with the new Tropico 6 DLC Spitter the new free update “Guagua” was released and Tropico celebrates its 19th birthday

Kalypso Media released the new Tropico 6 DLC “Spitter” on April 24th, in which El Presidente and Penultimo introduce the new state medium “Spitter”. Clearly this is a parody of the short news service “Twitter” and its frequent use of certain presidents for often very strange statements. At the same time the free update “Guagua” was released with some improvements and numerous bugfixes for all Tropico 6 players.

The Tropico 6 Spitter DLC

Governing in 280 characters: That’s the way to do it!

With the Tropico 6 DLC Spitter, publisher Kalypso Media and the developers of Limbic Entertainment release the second expansion for the popular build-up game Tropico 6, this DLC is all about the short news service Twitter oh no, Spitter, with which El Presidente can bring important messages, fake news (oh no, corrected truths) and his good contacts to stars and starlets among the people.

Missclicking for true dictators and friends of the people, and you don’t need facial tanning cream for it and no orange hair.

With a new mission, three new buildings, and some more new content, Tropico 6 fans get new food here for playing on the fictional Caribbean islands.

Strategy publisher Kalypso Media today launched Tropico 6‘s second DLC, ‘Spitter‘, with the US PlayStation®Store version to follow a day later on April 24th. Continuing the series’ penchant for dark humor and city building, Spitter DLC sees Tropico leader El Prez pursuing online infamy in the ever-changing world of social media.

Spitter DLC adds a new fame feature to Tropico 6. Using Spitter, the only social media app approved for use in Tropico, players can make a name for themselves through interactions with faction leaders, courtships with influencers, and connections with celebrities. They can also build new attractions such as the Rehab Centre and Beauty Farm to ensure that citizens and visitors have everything that they need right at their doorstep.

About the “Spitter” Tropico 6 DLC:
Fame and prestige are the new currency – nobody knows this better than El Presidente, self-proclaimed despot … oh … glamorous statesman that he is! Let the second Tropico 6 DLC carry you off into the world of the rich and beautiful. Thanks to the short news service “Spitter”, officially approved by the Tropican Ministry of Modern Communications and Smoke Signals, you can now interact with the superstars in a public way. Solicit their support, develop their individual strengths, and in return receive more respect and esteem from your subjects. But beware, fame and money can easily go to your head and bring shady characters to the scene!

The new Spitter game mechanics allow you to publicly interact with the profiles of celebrities and faction leaders, thereby increasing your own standing in the population. But beware – this can also be to your disadvantage.

Use new buildings such as the rehab center or the beauty farm to offer something to the (wellness) addicted stars and make them new citizens of Tropico, so that you will find more food for your newly awakened social media passion. Furthermore, 3 new songs, a new sandbox card, and more customization options for El Prez and its palace are waiting for you.

Spitter social media feature: interact with superstars and faction leaders via a social app to increase your standing and unlock new traits for celebrities
New mission and sandbox map
3 new buildings: lure celebrities to Tropico by building a Rehab Center or Beauty Farm, or assist in their decision to become permanent residents using the Super Villa
3 new audio tracks including: ‘Comercio Feliz’, ‘La Celebridad’ and ‘Fiesta en el Club’
5 additional customization options for El Prez and his palace

Tropico celebrates its 19th birthday

Tropico 1 came out 19 years ago. The brand Tropico is, therefore, a continuously exciting phenomenon in the field of business simulations, politics games, and construction games. The ironic-sarcastic presentation and the high level of detail and the exact simulation of states, from small economic contexts to world politics, finds more and more fans.

Publisher Kalypso Media is celebrating this birthday with a special sale across its entire product range, so maybe this is worth a look for you. The offers are valid from 24.04 to 03.05, and if these offers should have expired, you can still look at my partner site Gamesplanet as an alternative.
