Tropico 4 Gold Edition plots a November 13 release date
Good news, El Presidente! The people are honoring you with a gold edition of your latest coup d'état du jour. Tropico 4 Gold Edition, which includes the core Tropico 4 experience and its lengthy 'Modern Times' expansion, will be importable November 13 for Xbox 360 and PC at a suggested $39.99 price.

Although the game does feature a sandbox mode, it would be a shame if you picked this up and missed out on the ridiculous campaign. Tropico 4 is a milestone in the simulation genre, mixing the classic building aspects with an enjoyable over-the-top narrative: clone plagues and a zombie outbreak that can only be solved by plants, included. After this Gold Edition ships, El Presidente is taking a little siesta, but he'll be back.
