‘Waterborne’, the first major expansion for infamous city-builder/political simTropico 5 Penultimate Edition is now available on Xbox One. The future of Tropico lies on its shores – and now renowned leader El Presidente wants to spread his reign out into the sea and take advantage of lucrative new industrial opportunities by constructing waterborne structures across the coast.
