Plague Inc. Adding New Mode Where You Stop A Deadly Outbreak
Plague Inc. is a simulation where you play as a deadly disease and infect the world. For obvious reasons, the game has sparked quite the interest, leading to developer Ndemic Creations issuing a warning that the game is not a full simulator of a deadly virus.
Now, the developer has also added a new mode, where you are on the other side of the table. This time, you now can fight the deadly outbreak instead.
You can boost the healthcare system, as well as use real-world tactics like triaging, quarantining, social distancing and closing of public services. Like we are supposed to be doing right now.
Ndemic is working with World Health Organisation, the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network, and other experts in designing this new mode. It will be a free update for all players.
In addition, they have also donated $250,000 USD to the Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
The developer may have lucked out from the surge in sales in these trying times, but good on them for giving back.
Plague Inc. is available on iOS and Android. Plague Inc: Evolved is available on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
