Tropico 5

A game, getting pre-order bonuses on Steam? Well, that was unexpected! If you’ve been asleep for a decade.

The latest game to get in on the “please put down your money before the game is out” bandwagon is , which is offering both some bonuses if you pre-order on Steam (and pre-orders are open now) or opt for the newly-announced Limited Special Edition.

Steam pre-orders are doing that whole tiered thing again, where more bonuses are offered the more people pre-order. By default, you get 10% off. When the first threshold is hit, you’ll get a free copy of Tropico 4. When the second threshold is hit, you’ll get The Big Cheese DLC which will offer a sandbox mission, a character accessory, a building, a map, a standalone mission, and a music track. At the third threshold, you’ll get a free copy of Omerta: City of Gangsters. The press release also claims that Steam pre-orders will get a Businessman outfit and an Isla de Vapor sandbox map, but the Steam page makes no mention of these. Either way, that 10% off drops it to £31.49.

Alternatively, you can plump for the Limited Special Edition, which is automatically made available to anyone who pre-orders a physical copy of Tropico 5 or who buys it on launch. This nets you another avatar costume for El Presidente and the Bayo de Olfato sandbox map, as well as a Tropico passport and a Tropico postcard designed by Penultimo.

Finally, there’s a brand new trailer titled “The Eras”, which – as you might expect – shows off the eras you’ll be managing your way through when Tropico 5 launches on 23 May. You can have a look at that below.
