Kalypso Media has released the first gameplay footage for its upcoming city builder, Tropico 6, which was revealed back in July. In 2018, players can once again take on the role of a lovable (read: feared) dictator, perhaps with a penchant for a certain brand of tracksuit, as they rule over the fictional island state of Tropico across four different eras.

In Tropico 6, players will be able to manage a number of small islands, and for the first time in the series build connections (that’s bridges not romantic bonds) between these archipelagos, introduce a proper transportation infrastructure and even more. Players can send their Tropicans to steal a number of wonders of the world, such as the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty, and it’ll still be possible to rig elections, intimidate political rivals and quell rebellions.

Tropico 6 is out in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac.
