So anyone interested in pre-ordering Tropico 6 for Linux, can play it now. But due note, the install is for Windows only, but does well using Proton via Steam Play.
There are points where the game hangs briefly in the character setup screen. But otherwise, I would give it a Gold status for those interested in playing now. Since the actually gameplay works well. As does the tutorial.

There are also two great pre-order options for budding dictators to choose from. The Standard Edition is available with a 10% discount and direct access to the beta. while the special El Prez Edition also comes with a 10% discount and immediate beta access.

The beta itself will initially contain a generous amount of content. So eager Tropicans can get into the complete tutorial spanning all four eras. Facing the Colonial, World Wars, Cold War and Modern Times. Also two sandbox maps demonstrating Tropico’s new archipelago system in all its glory. And two full missions to sample the kinds of challenges. Those that wannabe dictators will face in the full release.

Language support includes English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian. While the Tropican Ministry of Propaganda and Misinformation has also confirmed that additional content and features will be added to the beta closer to full release.
