The Epic Games Store is keeping the good deals running along as 2020 comes to a close. It has been a pretty hectic year all things considered, even in the gaming industry. You had a lot of delays because of COVID, but fortunately, the season of giving hasn’t dried up.

This time on the store and for one day only, Tropico 5 will be available to claim for free. It’s a construction and management simulator that gives you the chance to expand an empire on the nation island of Tropico.

If you like sims that give you plenty to do and plenty to oversee, it can be just the offering you’re looking for heading into Christmas Eve and Christmas.

Tropico 5 has been out since 2014 and despite its age, it still receives mostly positive reviews on a consistent basis. That’s because it’s very easy to pick up despite your experience with this genre. But each time, you’ll learn new things that help you control this developing nation in a competent way.

It’s also nice that you don’t have just one period to look forward to as ruler. Instead, you get to go across several and it starts with the colonial times. Each era is different and that forces you to constantly adapt to the game’s systems, whether it’s how you manage the economy or which structures you invest in.

You don’t have to go at leadership alone in Tropico 5 either. The developer Haemimont Games gives you the opportunity to expand your dynasty as you see fit. You can promote different positions at any time and upon doing so, you’ll unlock new skills and abilities. Some will have a huge payoff so you must always choose your allies wisely.

You can play Tropico 5’s campaign solo or if you’re looking for a more cooperative experience, multiplayer is also available. That lets you enjoy the game’s systems with up to four other players if you so choose, sharing resources and coming together with how buildings should be designed.

There are a lot of great freebies right now considering Christmas is around the corner, but if you’re looking for total power in a world that is pretty much your oyster, then Tropico 5 is the perfect addition. All you have to do is head to the Epic Games Store before this one-day free period ends. Power, delegation, and diverse resources are up for grabs if you want them.
