Fellow Tropicans!
The update we are releasing today for Tropico 6 features many bug fixes, improvements and much more. We’re addressing a lot of issues raised by community feedback – so much so, that we have received that we gave it the name “El Gigante"

Over 300 changes were made to the game, covering balancing adjustments and many bug and crash fixes.

We hope you enjoy the update. Thank you for your continued support.

Vote El Presidente! Viva Tropico!
