Phew, it feels like it’s been a while since we’ve chatted about Plague Inc. and lucky us there’s a new update on the way.
If you don’t know about the game, Plague Inc. is a simulation/strategy puzzler where you have to infect and eventually kill of the whole world’s population using a number of means. There are tons of illnesses to choose from to date, but you’ll soon be able to dive into that 90s-classic Mad Cow Disease.
This ‘moo-tation’ as the devs call it leads to three new scenarios:
- Mad Cow Disease
- “While making this scenario we had to really think hard about what the world would look like if there was a re-emergence of the infamous 1990s outbreak. We naturally took the research and ran with it, though, so expect a few surprises!“
- Where Is Everyone?
- “Almost everybody in the world has mysteriously vanished and nobody knows why. The Rapture? Mass abductions? Spontaneous combustion? Who knows?! Luckily though, the few thousand people left behind are carrying on as normal. How will your outbreak spread when there are so few people left to infect?“
- Flight Club
- “Huge leaps in aviation technology have seen humanity unlock the true potential of suborbital flight on a commercial basis. In this future world you can get from London to Sydney in 2 hours for a fraction of the cost and every country in the world has an airport.”
We’re not sure exactly when the update will be launching across Steam, iOS, Android, and console but we’ll know in the next few days. Read the full notes right here.
