Publisher Calypso Media and in-house development team Realmforge Studios today released the new DLC “Going Viral” for the popular strategy hit “Tropico 6” on PC. Players should wash their hands thoroughly (for a full 30 seconds), put on a new lab coat, prepare the syringe, and join El Presidente on his viral adventure. Microorganisms threaten the health of the tropics. The Fight for the Antidote launches today on PC and continues on October 26th on Xbox One, Series X|S and PlayStation 4|5.
As El Presidente, players immerse themselves in the world of epidemics and political games to fight new diseases or use their influence politically. Thanks to the newly introduced “panic” system, the reaction of Tropico residents to disease outbreaks can be monitored. Players can sound the alarm and use the public’s fear to their advantage, or calm citizens when threatened with potentially deadly threats.
Of the four epidemics that threaten Tropico, some mild, others severe – El Presidente must take targeted action in each case. As a determined leader, players have nine new buildings and 16 new decrees to bring the epidemic under control. For example, you can build a huge hospital to expand medical resources or set up health checkpoints to identify sick citizens. And El Presidente does it all in style, thanks to his new “medicas mask” that protects against potential infections.
