Ndemic Creations has released the much anticipated Shadow Plague expansion for its hit strategy game Plague Inc: Evolved. This is a major update for the best-selling and critically acclaimed mobile & PC game which continues to infect the world with over 85 million players across multiple platforms.
The expansion adds Brexit events into the game’s sophisticated disease models as well as the new Shadow Plague – a sentient, mutagenic pathogen which triggers a powerful thirst for blood in its chosen host. The Shadow Plague sees an overwhelmingly powerful vampire try to take over the world and rule humanity. Unlike the normal game, here you control a single vampire in its mission to enslave all humans and bring in a new era of darkness. Can humanity defend itself against a powerful vampire attacking from the shadows?
In the update – players must:
- Consume humanity – Feed carefully to grow in power and transform into a monstrous bat to strategically set up lairs and shadow portals.
- Emerge from the Shadows – Create slaves to worship their vampire and use Blood Rage to defeat the Templar who hunt them as well as the WHO who seek to eradicate their pathogen
- Cover the world in darkness – Master unique gameplay mechanics and strategies to help the vampire rule the world!
As for Brexit – once the results of the referendum are declared – the player can use their disease to help influence the path the UK takes – creating conditions to allow a soft or hard Brexit – or even a terrifying ‘brutal’ Brexit. For people who would rather not leave the EU – there is also the possibility to turn back time and keep the UK inside the union instead. Plague Inc. is a unique mix of high strategy and realistic simulation which lets players create and control a global plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself.
