Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Requires Tropico 4 (base game) to use this DLC
Due to a budget SNAFU (for which Penultimo is not responsible), the remote island of Isla Guerra is revolting against El Presidente’s regime. Tropico needs to recruit skilled cadets via the new East Point Academy and prepare for a large scale assault by an invading enemy army. The East Point Graduate trait enables El Presidente to prevail against enemies in combat and the Cadet’s uniform completes this military-centric package.
New building: East Point Academy (provides college and military education, cadets are skilled soldiers and generals)
New trait: East Point Graduate (enemies are always killed and not wounded by El Presidente in combat)
New outfit: East Point Cadet (female avatar)
New mission: Peace, Love and Understanding – Repel a large scale foreign invasion

The Academy feels like many of the previous smaller DLCs for Tropico 4. They usually add a building or two, new outfit, a trait and sometimes a new mission. Academy is not any different. It covers the subject of a military academy for your country. Much like West Point, but quite unsurprisingly it's called... East Point, and trains military personnel. The new trait allows to make your el presidente a graduate of this academy, which improves his combat efficiency, and the new outfit is a nice female version of an East Point cadet in a pretty uniform. The last addition is a new mission, in which you will have to defend against a massed enemy invasion. But with the addition of all the military enhancements, the mission shouldn't be too difficult for you.
