The Tropico 5 Multiplayer Trailer is here! The video highlights the different options for Multiplayer in Tropico 5.
A few things I picked out from the video:
You can select which dynasty you want to use for the Multiplayer. So you can tailor a family specifically for cooperative game play or competitive.
You can select your starting era. Colonial Era to Modern Times. This will likely affect the buildings and units available.
Or choose what part of their cities to destroy!
