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.

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'm really into real-time strategy games and have been playing them for many years now (Caesars, Tycoons, TTD, Hospital, Age of..., you name it) - so Plague was on my wishlist for some time then I bought it a couple days ago.
I think I spent half of my day trying to beat the game on different leves with different bacteria/virii - this is kinda addictive.
One round doesn't take too much, 20-30 mins I guess, but it's easy to lose track of time. Maybe, just like for Pokemon Go, someone should make a custom scenario, how Plague Inc. Evolved eradicated humanity.

Plauge Inc: Evolved is a refreshing taste in an overpopulated time of first person shooters. With it's unique game mechanics and some very well designed game modes this truly is an amazing disease experiance that should be more popular than it is. With so many different disease types each with a unique experiance at destroying the earth and scenarios where it's even more variety in your endevours to destroy all human life this truly is a brillant game 10/10 IGN

This game is really cool and it is really fun expecially when you play with friends and have challenges, but it kinda messes up and the screen freezes and just spazzes out like these in the photo.

The single player is very similar to the mobile version - not interesting at all, other than a more informative UI; the last major update was probably two years ago, when they released the simian flu... after that, they only added scenarios because they are much easier to program...

Single player and multiplayer versus are pretty fun and balanced, but the multiplayer co-op really ticked me off.

I jumped into two matches, and both of them angered me so much that I wanted to throw my computer at the wall. Here is precisely what happened:

In the first game, my "partner" started in Greenland and practically didn't spread to even 20,000 people before I spread to 2 billion. He then started to steal my DNA and infectivity, preventing me from spreading more and essentially trolling the heck out of me. Funnily enough, he still didn't spread. This "co-op" mode is practically "troll the other player" with your "steal" evolution. Horrible.

In a second game, my "partner" barely spread - he was literally waiting for me to spread. After I infected around 40% of the world, he started evolving the trait that gives him all of the people I ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ infected (mate, I spent A LOT of DNA to get to that infectivity mutha♥♥♥♥a), essentially getting free DNA without investing the DNA to get his infectivity up. Then, he evolves to become totally f***ing lethal and kills off ALL of the people I infected. Yay. Of course, he gets DNA in the process of killing my hosts and now I can't spread to the other 60% of the world because either people are dying faster than they are being infected or the few infected are just completely wiped out of a nation.

Essentially, co-op is so poorly thought-out and made. Just these two experiences are enough for me to uninstall this game. I really enjoyed the mobile version, but judging by the fact that this game is almost 10 times more expensive with only little more to offer (and that "little more" is actually really rage-inducing), this game is definitely not worth your money.

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
