Yes!
but maybe not from start on because we have to do some technical integrations first.

It will have the same language(s) your Tropico 4 base game has.

Will the expansion be a stand-alone or will it install ontop of the current game?

It is a normal addon, so you need the full version.

Surprised to see that downloads (especially from your launcher) are later than boxed versions, I would assume your margin is a lot higher on the former especially when you control the distribution channel...

What is the release date for Singapore and other Asian countries? Is it the same as North America? (PC version).

Sorry, I can't answer this question as regional release dates are dependent on regional distributors. In any case, you should be able to purchase and download Modern Times from within the main game's launcher, with the exception of Steam and some other download portals. But as long as you have a boxed retail version of the main game, the Modern Times add-on will download just like any of the previously released DLCs (Junta, Plantador, Quick-Dry Cement).

RE: Tropico 4 - Modern Times - Official Release Dates
i REALLY hope you've reverted back to the old style statue for El Presidente in the Modern times upgrade, In Tropico 4 the statues look cumbly and held up by superglue, and the golden one is an abmonination, howver in Tropico 3 the stone ones were nice, smooth and detailed, and the gold one was fine and nicely detailed, to be replaced with horrific, smashed up, run down ugly statues Sad For someone whos Island contains lots of squares and propaganda gardens which look nice, but have these hideous statues in the middle, it really disapointed me compared with Tropico 3.

A complaint i've been making day after day since this game came out....

OTHER THAN THAT.

The expansion pack looks nicely, wonder how my Stalinist Totalitarian regime will adapt to the new modern world Smile only time will tell Smile

Im looking forward to seeing the new industry buildings mostly.

RE: Tropico 4 - Modern Times - Official Release Dates
Hi!

I have bought the original Tropico 4 (I kind of skipped on the DLC's but may get them in the future), and will get this, but I have to ask:

I want to give Tropico as a gift, to convert new fans to El Presidente followers Big Grin - Will you release some sort of bundle / special edition which will include Tropico 4 + expansion together?

This would be the best for such a purpose (gift).

Thank you!

I assume you'll set the dependent app flag in the CDR then? :3

Well this is the official release of Microsoft(i have seen the list in other game site http://www.neoseeker.com/news/18636-xbox...on-demand/) for this month and Tropico 4 modern times is not in the list so it should not come out this month or there something wrong with this news ?

Hi. I was wondering if you guys knew when the digital version of the expansion would be up for preorder on Amazon? I see it's available already on Steam and the boxed version can be preordered on Amazon, but I don't see a preorder for a digital version. Thanks in advance.
