El Presidente is getting tired of this amateur dictator image, so he’s decided that it’s about time he added a little more professionalism to his career and officially become the most famous supervillain in the whole of the Caribbean.
El Presidente has visited the void of time and space and confirmed his long-held suspicion: he is in fact the most important person in the entire universe. However, the enlightenment it granted gave him an ominous message – the planet earth is under threat from alien incursion – and aliens want to build an intergalactic highway straight across Tropico! Enlist the help of the wise dolphins of the Pacific Ocean and save your banana republic in the ‘Surf’s Up!’ DLC for Tropico 5.

The ‘Mad World’ DLC for Tropico 5 is out today on PC and El Prez needs your help in the brand new ‘Madness’ scenario! Set in the ‘World War’ Era, things have gone a bit too far for the mighty El Prez this time and the loving support of Penultimo just isn’t enough. Return him to his usual sharp self and share the benefit of advanced health care using the new Asylum building – though be warned: as with all things Tropico, there are two sides to every story. Will you provide health and happiness to the people, or push your enemies to the brink of madness? ‘Mad World’ includes the new ’Madness’ scenario, the all new Asylum building, St. Dimpna sandbox map, the very serious Funnel Hat avatar accessory, and a spicy salsa music track to help lift the mood of the troubled Tropicans!
Do you know El Presidente’s only weakness? His penchant for a good, ripe cheese of course! While his exclusively imported French speciality cheese may bring some short lived satisfaction, El Presidente wants more! To satisfy his desire, El Presidente decided to open his very own artisan cheese factory – The Creamery – in the first DLC pack for the hugely popular Tropico 5.
