The Manhattan Update for the landlord sim The Tenants is now available on Steam. This is the last major update before the game fully releases later this year; it brings tons of new content, features, and improvements.

In the Manhattan Update, you’ll be managing your real estate empire in the titular Manhattan district. You will have access to this by finishing the main story missions in both the Slums and Suburbs.

The new district introduces the property classification system where you’ll manage two different types of apartments. The first is the residential apartment, a regular space that you’re already accustomed to in The Tenants. The business apartment, on the other hand, is open for companies to rent spaces as their new offices.

A new tenant archetype called the Politician is now available in the game. This new tenant may require you to do things related to what a politician would do in the real world, like a rehearsal before an important speech.

In addition, The Tenants has a new type of progression system known as Target Cards. You’ll be given a random card with a certain objective you need to complete. The good thing is that you can do this at your own pace.
