By - | Views: 12,996
Tropico 5 is highly anticipated for Linux gamers and one I have been personally waiting for.

It will officially release on the 19th of September for us Linux gamers!

I can't wait to face off against Linux dictators in Tropico and pretend to be cooperative while building my weapons of mass destruction.

It has a 75/100 metacritic score, so it looks like it's doing pretty well too!

The confirmation comes from their official facebook page (English confirmation below this one):
QuoteNun ist die Katze aus dem Sack: TROPICO 5 Mac- und SteamOS-Version erscheint am 19. September auf Steam und auch im Mac AppStore. ‪#‎Tropico5‬ ‪#‎Mac‬ ‪#‎SteamOS‬

There's also the World of Tropico facebook which states it too:
QuoteTropico 5 Mac and SteamOS version will be released on September, 19!

I've gone from being "skeptical" to downright "cynical" when I hear that a company is planning to bring linux support to a game "some time soon". But this is enough to get me pretty excited. Definitely a must-buy.
