Evolution 20 - Multiplayer balance update



Hey everyone

We have just released a new multiplayer balance update for Plague Inc: Evolved which addresses some of the feedback we have been getting from players. Fans of viruses and parasite will be particularly excited by this!

  • Parasite tweak - Parasitic DNA theft buffed - parasite now steals 45% of opponent's DNA, up from 40%. Remember, your severity will increase as your opponent evolves so it won't be long before humans are out to cure you!
  • Virus tweak - We found that the virus was devolving too often to get much use in competitive play. We have reduced the chance of devolving to 12% (from 14%) and also made it 5% harder to cure
  • Bioweapon tweak - Bioweapon continues to be one of the more popular disease types in VS mode - we are making it 5% easier to cure to prevent it becoming too dominant.
  • Benign Mimic tweak - One of the most popular active abilities in VS mode - we are making a few changes to its duration and impact to ensure that other strategies have enough room to breathe. Will keep an eye on this and see if more action is needed.

We are hard at work on a new disease type for Plague Inc. at the moment - will share more information on it soon!

Also - it is still possible to make a late pledge for Plague Inc: The Board Game here: https://plague-inc.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

Full Change Log:

MP VS mode balance changes
  • Bioweapon ~5% easier to cure
  • Virus ~5% harder to cure
  • Virus devolve chance now reduced to 12% from 14%
  • Parasite now steals 45% of DNA, up from 40%
  • Benign Mimic lasts 5 days longer
  • Benign Mimic starts slower and increases in strength over time
  • Daily cure impact of an individual benign mimic now capped (at ~5% of total cure requirement)
  • If immune shock used in a country without opponent - has lesser impact on infectivity
Bug fix
  • Fixed Edge case on publish for Scenario Creator
  • Minor Load/Save Fix
  • Fix for edge case of unlocking Official Scenarios

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.

Very addicting just don't play it everyday. I like the game but it gets kind of boring if you play and unlock all genes and pathogens in one gameplay so just take some time off between gameplay so you won't get bored. other than that I recommend this game if you want to test your strategic skills

Do you ever wake up and think; "I sure wish I could kill everyone in the world," or "I wonder how hard it is to create a bio-weapon!" If so then instead of buying this game, I think you should seek serious help. Please don't kill people. This is a video game, please realize a problem when you have it.
But if you don't want to kill everyone in the world and only want to play with simulations that do it for you then this is the game for you; Plague Inc.
Take on the role of a plague, choosing how you evolve to spread from country to country. Use your wits and skills to infect every single human being, or look up a walkthrough when you can't win because of F***ING GREENLAND, ahem, my bad, lost my cool for a second. Fight the cure with your abilities, travel places using transmission, and kill people useing symptoms.
All of this and more in:
Plague Inc: F***ing Greenland
Why. Can't. I. Infect. GREENLAND?!

My Review
Pros
- Good Base Game Diseases.
- Easy to play, hard to master.
- Steam Workshop.
- Able to name the disease, " Pokemon Go " and kill everyone in the world.
- Experiment where to start the disease, and which mutations you want.

Cons
- None at the moment.

Amazing game. I have played Plague Inc. on my phone for around two years and have all the IAPs for it. The graphics are very good and the developers are very friendly. There are no glitches at all. I very much recommend this game to everyone. It is well worth the $15.00 for it and the sounds are amazing. The games developer was actually invited to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) to speak because of the realism of the game. Once again, I highly recommend this game. Multiplayer works just fine with no lag at all.

I love this game. It was the very first thing I downloaded when I got Steam, which was of course quite recently. It's your standard simulation game, but with a few twists. Basically you can play God. Myself, my girlfriend and her kids all enjoy this game.

I've owned this game since early access and enjoyed it. However I was a bit disappointed in the lack of multiplayer. I recently checked back in to see the progress in the game development, and they now have a very stable and fleshed out co-op and PVP mode. The developers continue to update the game at a steady pace. Plague Inc: Evolved (And the original mobile version) are good time killers for casual players, but also very in-depth for those who have a passion for strategy games. I haven't played a RTS game quite like it. Highly recommend.

Basically you dominate the entirety of the human race on a cellular level. How can it get any better than that?

Genocide, lets not shy away from that fact.
Its funny to name your disease something offensive or funny.
Theres ALOT of user made scenarios, memes, philosophy, recent trends, hot topics, you name it. Trump Pokemon Go Hitler Black Death etc. Prolly a deathnote one, a couple lame pony ones if I recall. A... furry ...scenario. Like I said memes.

Game is fun, spent countless hours bringing humanity to its knees, except Madagascar and Greenland, then start over.
10/10
