Tropico 4 and Wasteland Angel Join the OnLive PlayPack

This week's new additions to the OnLive PlayPack are Tropico 4 and Wasteland Angel. Wasteland Angel is a new title for OnLive, Tropico 4 was released last September as a PlayPass title and is now also available in the PlayPack. The OnLive PlayPack is now at 226 games and counting.

Tropico 4

Tropico 4 is priced at $39.99 in the US ($27.99 PlayPack) and £29.99 in the UK (£20.99 PlayPack).

Tropico 4 is a construction and management simulation strategy game published by Kalypso Media and developed by Bulgarian game studio Haemimont Games. As the title says, the game is the fourth part of the Tropico series. Its predecessor and the third part of the series, Tropico 3, is also part of the OnLive PlayPack.

In Tropico 4 the world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times - geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers -- and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to gain as much support from your people as possible. Your decisions will shape the future of your nation, and more importantly, the size of your off-shore bank account.

Tropico 4 expands on the gameplay of the previous game with new political additions - including more superpowers to negotiate with, along with the ability to elect ministers into power to help get your more controversial policies passed. But remember to keep your friends close and your enemies closer as everyone has an agenda! Your political mettle will be thoroughly tested, as new natural disasters will have the populace clamoring for you and your cabinet to help them recover from some of the worst Mother Nature can dish out.

- New campaign consisting of 20 missions on 10 new maps
- 20 new buildings including stock exchange, shopping mall, aqua park and a mausoleum to El Presidente
- Six new interactive disasters including volcanoes, droughts and tornadoes
- Council of Ministers - selected citizens to ministerial posts in the government to help push through your more controversial decisions
- National Agenda - receive objectives from Tropican factions, foreign geopolitical powers or opportunities relating to current island events such as ongoing disasters
- Trading system - import and export goods to or from other nations to boost your economy or production

Wasteland Angel

Wasteland Angel is a vehicular combat Shoot 'em up game published by Meridian4 and developed by Finnish Octane Games.

Bummer, World War III happened and killed most of the world's population. The ones that got toasted were the lucky ones. Survivors live in constant fear of being murdered or enslaved by violent gangs, renegade military units and, of course, mutants.

Outfitted with a heavily armored car, unlimited firepower and a thirst for vengeance, our Heroine - the Wasteland Angel roams the radioactive wastes, travelling from one God-forsaken town to the next, protecting survivors from being enslaved. She's on a mission, to defend those that can't defend themselves.

Wasteland Angel is a nostalgic throw-back to the era of vintage arcade shooters where players fend off waves of enemies and ultimately face-off against epic end-level bosses. From a top-down isometric view, players pilot the Wasteland Angel's overpowered vehicle as its dual machine guns cut a swath across the terrain. To handle whatever the gangs, muties and renegades throws her way, Wasteland Angel has upgradeable ammo that can rip enemies from this life and toss them into the next one.
