Tropico 6 Going Viral Sends El Presidente to an Infectious New Adventure

Kalypso Media and Realmforge Studios have announced that Tropico 6 Going Viral is now available for PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. The console version of the game is expected to launch later this month.

Going Viral sends El Presidente on an unexpected journey into the dark realms of pandemic mayhem. Vaccines, PPE, and conspiracy theories reign as four different — and deadly — diseases begin infecting island residents. The goal is to find cures while dealing with the challenges of managing the population.

Developers want to spread the news about pandemic adventures on the islands and have done so with an all-new launch trailer that’s sure to send viewers off to find their hand sanitizer.

Features include

  • Find the cure, with Tropico 6 – Going Viral: 4 different diseases hit Tropico and disrupt daily life; some may severely harm your citizens, others may be just a mild cough *cough*.
  • Pull the strings & keep control in a 4 mission-campaign or fight the diseases on a new multiplayer map.
  • Stay calm… or don’t! Influence the masses with the new “Panic” mechanic. The panic meter measures how the Tropican citizens feel about the diseases. High panic allows for more powerful edicts to be enacted. Should you raise the alarm in order to exploit the situation with powerful edicts, or keep the population calm in the face of a potentially deadly threat?
  • Inject first, ask later: A host of 16 exciting new edicts will be unlocked as your panic meter rises and will give you different ways in which to exploit the disease in Tropico: Inject first, ask questions later, mandate masks, or choose to gear up for a viral palace party, it’s all up to you, El Presidente!
  • Managing the disease: 9 new buildings will change the way you manage Tropico and how you deal with outbreaks and diseases. Use the Healing Howitzer to speedily distribute the cure to your Tropicans or build the new Colossal Hospital to increase your medical capacities and place Medical Checkpoints on the streets to find infected people.
    In addition, during the campaign a curious quack will also help you manage the disease in Ambrosius’ Magic Hut.
  • Fight the plague in style with new design options for El Presidente & the palace! With new accessories like the plague doctor for El Presidente or the Medical Fencing for your palace, you’ll be perfectly prepared.
