While surely not at the level of Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, Kalypso Media Group has a lot to celebrate when it comes to Tropico 5's pre-order numbers. Releasing this Friday, Tropico 5 "has set new internal pre-sale records for the entire company [and] has achieved four times the number of orders secured over its predecessor Tropico 4, which was released in 2011." According to the press release, the game has topped the Amazon pre-sale charts in several countries for many weeks and Steam pre-orders have exceeded expectations.
Tropico 5 is launching for Windows PC on May 23. Mac and Xbox 360 versions are coming this summer, while a PlayStation 4 version is coming this fall.
