Tropico 3, the latest in Haemimont Games' strategy series, will be out on 360 and PC on October 16.
Publisher Kalypso Media has also confirmed that a demo for the game will go live on "the week commencing September 7".
"Tropico 3 stays true to the heart and soul of the original Tropico," says Kalypso which, based on the previous titles, means you can expect a strategy game in which you take control of a tropical island.
According to the publisher, "one of the most prominent features of the sequel is your own, freely customizable avatar. This time, you will be able to slip into the clothes of El Presidente, wander about Tropico Island and directly influence your people."
