Build brand new off-shore alternatives to defence, food, energy, entertainment and even housing – which each come with their own set of opportunities and disadvantages. Organise and coordinate transport to structures like the kelp and oyster farms, construct tidal power plants as an eco-friendly alternative to nuclear power and build gorgeous floating apartments if you’re running out of space on the island! Launch military submarines to bolster your naval forces or create an exotic bathysphere attraction to compliment your bustling tourist paradise.

The ‘Waterborne’ expansion for Tropico 5 comes with a slew of new gameplay features and enhancements: such as water traffic, larger coastal areas and new events to keep even the most seasoned island rulers on their toes. An all-new campaign spanning 6 epic scenarios, new dialogue and story shows what marine life is all about in the waters of Tropico. Meet the beloved cast and crew of Tropico 5 once again and experience all-new wacky adventures, outrageous situations and enjoy the trademark cutting sense of political humour.

All the new content and off-shore gameplay mechanics work with existing sandbox maps and multiplayer modes.

  • 9 new off-shore buildings and marine vehicles
  • 4 new island maps (also available for sandbox games)

  1. Best DLC out of the bunch
    by Ryan Villarreal1, USA - Jun 17th 2017

    Most of the tropico 5 dlc is pretty blah, but this gives you the most bang for your buck with regards to content. Price is a lil steep for what you get tho. wait for a sale.

  2. A big DLC, with a lot to offer.
    by Allie Collins, USA - Mar 13th 2016

    This is actually a pretty solid expansion, that offers all sorts of new things. Missions, buildings, vehicles, and so forth, that actually make your island better. People pick on the smaller DLCs for the game, but this is one of the two big ones, so if you play the game, it is worth grabbing this. The most important thing is that some of the buildings are useful, thus you should have them on your island. Worth getting the DLC, if the price is right.
