Plague Inc. Update to Feature Planet of the Apes Virus

By on

Plague Inc. will be having a really big update soon and this time it features a partnership with 20th Century Fox. The Simian Flu is coming to the game and is the same virus that is going to be in the upcoming summer blockbuster movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It?s a great fit for the game as the collaboration is sure to have both old and new Plague Inc. gamers excited for the update?s release. Fans of the movie will also want to check out what the game is and what it has to offer.

The Plague Inc. update?will have the Simian Flu which is a genetically modified virus that was created in a Gen-Sys lab. The virus has been found to increase intelligence within apes but doesn?t apply to humans as it mutates rapidly and is untested. A description of how gameplay is expected to play out is below.

  • Experience Planet of the Apes?on a global scale?- See how humanity responds as you infect the world with a lethal, artificial virus. Can they handle a global pandemic while dealing with a growing nation of genetically evolved, intelligent apes?
  • Control communities of intelligent apes?? As well as infecting humans, evolve your disease in parallel to allow ape-to-ape transmission and improve their cognitive abilities. Ape colonies will generate DNA whilst helping apes avoid detection from humans.
  • For one species to rise, another must fall??? Master new gameplay mechanics and strategies to help apes become the dominant species on the planet. Decide when your apes should rampage against research labs, move apes to avoid detection from military drones and use ape migration to prevent scientists from conducting aggressive ape experiments.

Plague Inc.?s update is coming to the Android and iOS versions. Plague Inc.:? Evolved for the Mac and Windows PC will also be getting the update. The forthcoming version of Plague Inc.: Evolved for the Xbox One will also get the update. Languages supported will initially be in English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (both simplified and traditional), French, German, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian.

There is no specific release date as of yet but James Vaughan, the game?s creator, has mentioned that it is coming ?very soon?.
