There's just two days to go until a new, high quality, non-FPS game is being released for Linux.

Tropico 5, a construction and management simulation video game first released for Windows earlier this year, will be released for Linux and OS X this week. Haemimont Games is releasing Tropico 5 for Linux and OS X on Friday, 19 September.

Tropico 5 is powered by the company's own in-house game engine and builds on the success of earlier titles in the Tropico series. There's no word yet on the quality of the Linux port, but hopefully there won't be any issues (unlike The Witcher 2, et al).

Confirmation of the Tropico 5 Linux release date was posted to their Facebook page. All the way to last August we were talking about Tropico 5 on Linux. Learn more about the game at
