Ndemic Creation have announced that their popular virus spreading simulator Plague INC: Evolved will be coming to the Xbox One as soon as this week, releasing on September 18th.
If you are not familiar with the game, you are essentially Wesker from Resident Evil and are trying to bring about the end of the world using viruses to kill as much of the worlds population as possible.
There are a huge number of viruses available, including Planet of the Apes type Simian Flu and even Zombies on the PC version! You can also name them whatever you wish, as Fiona has done below with “Kev’s Toxic Burping”, as well as “FartyButt” seen above from the mobile version. She is a mature, modern woman… we swear…
Not all of these will be available straight away, but the game will feature 9 different disease types and 20 scenarios, as well as speed run and very difficult modes. These other viruses will be made available further down the line as free updates and DLC, some of which are created by the community.
The PC version is in Early Access but has sold a lot. This includes the mobile version which has had over 55 million players since its release in 2012.
Myself and Fiona absolutely love this game, and find it hard to put down. It is really easy to get into, and there are quite a number of ways to kill people, whether quick and painless or slow and painfully. What are your thoughts though? Have you played it? Let us know in the comments!
