Tropico 5 expansion Espionage launches next week on Mac, PC and SteamOS

A Tropico 5 expansion called Espionage has been announced, and it will be made available globally next week for PC, Mac and SteamOS.

The expansion contains the new adventure The Maltese Toucan which tasks players with protecting Tropico's treasures from foreign agents.

Here's a synopsis:

Protect Tropico’s borders and reveal enemy agents by installing Security Checkpoints and throwing them in the island’s new Dungeon. Train your own spies in the new Spy Academy and send them off to steal foreign capital or top secret technology from your enemies. Foil attacks on your beautiful island paradise by building the Ministry Of Information and monitor your citizens according to the strict Tropican data privacy laws. For additional air security you can call on the new Police Blimp, and for serious military scenarios you will be equipped with some new toys: the Mechanized Garrison is battle seasoned and ready for any state of emergency.

Spanning six missions, you can expect manipulation, revolts and acts of sabotage as you use all the resources at your disposal to protect your island from the outside powers trying to move in. Will your drink be 'shaken or stirred' at the end of this thrilling spy tale?
