Evolution 18 - Parasite, Fungus and Steam Controller come out to play!



Even though Plague Inc: Evolved has left Early Access, it continues to evolve and add new, exciting gameplay! With this evolution we have 2 new multiplayer disease types for you - Fungus and Parasite - as well as several new Multiplayer genes. On top of this, we have also added Steam controller support, once again increasing the different ways to play Plague Inc :)

Here is a summary of the main features:

  • Fungus Multiplayer disease type - As ever, the fungus will find it hard to travel long distances, even by unscheduled flight. However the regular spores will give you a brand new mechanism to help you spread around the globe. This fungus is much happier in humid climates too...
  • Parasite Multiplayer disease type - The Parasite has a parasitic(!) approach to DNA collection, with the ability to harvest DNA from your opponent's corpses. However, your severity will increase as your opponent evolves so it won't be long before humans are out to cure you.
  • Steam Controller Support - We have now added the official Ndemic-designed Steam controller support. Our configuration ensures that you can play Plague Inc: Evolved as happily with the Steam controller as you can with mouse and keyboard!
  • New Multiplayer Genes - 5 new Multiplayer genes will allow you to customise your plague to suit your strategies even more. Think you can find their starting country quickly? Use the "Search and Destroy" gene! Want to mutate Transmissions and Abilities? Use the "Base Hydration" gene! Want more detail about where your opponent is? Use the "Peekaboo" gene! But remember, as ever, all these genes have a downside...

We'll have more updates to come over the next few months. We have more Multiplayer disease types in the pipeline, as well as some single player ones as well. We've also got plans for improvements to the Scenario Creator, as well as an engine upgrade (which will allow us to keep releasing new content in the future). Basically, there's still much more to come from Plague Inc: Evolved, so do keep an eye out ;)



Full Change Log:
New Additions
  • New Multiplayer Disease Types - Fungus and Parasite!
  • 5 brand new genes for use in Multiplayer
  • Steam Controller compatibility added. Works in every game mode!
Tweaks
  • Improvements to the Benign Mimic ability in VS mode - massively increasing its effectiveness if placed in the same country repeatedly and making it easier to get a foothold in a benign mimiced country
  • Leaderboards and statistics tweaks
  • New DLLs added, to resolve the issue where a handful of users were having difficulties launching the game
  • Expanded hit box on smaller islands for ease of selection
  • Minor text and graphical tweaks
Fixes
  • Z-Com spawn issue fixed
  • Worm Food and Assuming Direct Control achievements should be working correctly now

About This Game



Plague Inc: Evolved is a unique mix of high strategy and terrifyingly realistic simulation. Your pathogen has just infected 'Patient Zero' - now you must bring about the end of human history by evolving a deadly, global Plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself.

Plague Inc. is so realistic that the CDC even asked the developer to come and speak about the infection models in the game! http://blogs.cdc.gov/publichealthmatters/2013/04/plague-inc/.

Over 65 million players have been infected by Plague Inc. already. Now, Plague Inc: Evolved combines the original critically acclaimed gameplay with significant, all-new features for PC including multiplayer, user-generated content support, improved graphics and lots more.



  • 10 Different Disease Types – Master every pathogen; from bacteria to bio-weapons and mind control to zombies, end humanity by any means possible – different diseases will need radically different approaches.
  • 20 Unique Scenarios – Adapt your strategy; scenarios create further challenges for your pandemic – how will you handle a new strain of Swine Flu, or infect a world in Ice Age?
  • Hyper-Realistic World – Strategize in the real world; advanced AI and use of real-world data and events make Plague Inc: Evolved a highly authentic simulation of a world-ending pathogen. Even the CDC likes it!
  • Competitive Multiplayer - The world is unlucky enough to be infected with two plagues, but how will you win the battle for genetic dominance against your opponent? Players get all new evolutions, abilities and genes to help them fight for global control and destroy their opponent!
  • Co-Operative Mode - Two different diseases team up to infect and destroy the world together but Humanity has new tricks up its sleeve to fight back! Work closely with your partner and use brand-new genes, traits and strategies to smash cure labs all over the world before they eradicate you.
  • Contagious Content Creator - Hit the lab and develop your own custom scenarios - creating new plague types, worlds and in-game events. Sophisticated tools support user-generated content to let players bring their deadliest ideas to life and share them on Steam Workshop. With over 10,000 custom scenarios already released - there is always something new to infect!
  • Blinding Graphics - Full 3D disease models take you closer to your plague than ever before, city-cams show humanity's struggle at street level, and the body scanner highlights the full effect of your mutations, organ by organ.
  • Deadly Data - Geek out with stats and graphs; monitor infection and death levels, track government reactions and cure efforts, then review your plague's success (or failure!) with full game replays.
  • And much more... - Including speed runs, Mega-Brutal difficulty and genetic modification... Plus loads of new disease types and scenarios in future (free!) updates.

A fun death simulator you can actually learn to beat rather than just staying ahead of RNG or being "lucky" in general. I appreciate how much thought went into this when they could've just as easily made a random mess that punishes and rewards players nonsensically. Good work.

It's pretty good so far. I've played the mobile Plague Inc and this one is even better! It would be nice to see some more disease types though! Multiplayer co-op and versus is very fun. I really like how you can customise your desease at the beggining with the different Genes you can use.
My favourite part is the custom scenario creator as you can change whatever you want and add your own evolutionary traits - from country population to cure research speed.

Final rating: 8.5 / 10

I bought the game literally just so I could create a disease called "Hulkamania."

Was completely worth it.
