They've expanded the game to modern times, added more content and some new itsy bitsy mechanics.... but I'll reserve my judgement till it's out This new gameplay trailer takes us through the eras and demonstrates how a banana republic might evolve it's economy over time. The Xbox 360 version will be release in the summer and the PS4 in autumn. Check out the trailer below...
