During July, we have been running various technical beta tests on the multiplayer. Thank you so much to all the testers who have been sharing their findings with us - the quality of responses has been brilliant.
The headline from the beta was that the multiplayer worked without any major technical problems - this was a big relief! :)
It also provided us with a lot of connectivity data and identified a number of lobby issues as well as some lag spikes for a few players. The lobby issues are now fixed and we are putting some time into optimising data-packets to deal with the lag - initial player reports suggest it is sorted!
Although the gameplay was heavily restricted to ensure focus on the connection - we also got a few interesting gameplay facts - the most popular country to start in was China and >30% of players went with a rather powerful Nausea, Sweating, Necrosis combo! Such tactics won't have quite the same impact once the rest of the gameplay is unlocked though :P
In August, we will be beginning proper gameplay testing and also expanding the number of players in the beta. Keep an eye out for emails in case you are selected!
Unrelated to multiplayer but in the next week - we are aiming to push out a minor update to the game which contains a number of bug fixes for single player as well as adding in Korean language support. We are also working on a tutorial to help new players begin to infect the world - more details to come on that shortly!
Well done to everyone who entered the Plague Inc: Evolved "Bugs and Insects" Custom scenario competition. It's been fantastic to see so many people getting involved in the community and making enormously creative scenarios.
We had over 130 submissions, and we have played them all, (lots of them multiple times). We've seen everything from Ancient Egyptian Scarab beetles to World Wide Computer Bugs to gruesome Human Centipedes! We were really impressed with the overall standard and with so many great entries, judging the competition has been really challenging!
Anyway, what you are really interested in, is who has won. We first narrowed it down to a "long list" of possible winners (honourable mentions) and then narrowed this down to the final shortlist (Runners up). Finally, we then deliberated for quite a while about who were the three prize winners. So here are the results:
