Plague Inc. gets a monkey business tie-in

, | News

The Simian Flu is coming to Plague Inc. Developer Ndemic Creations has announced that Plague Inc. on mobile systems and Plague Inc: Evolved on PC will be getting the 1.9 update soon that incorporates the intelligence-boosting virus from the upcoming 20th Century Fox movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. In Plague Inc.’s version of the movie events, players will try to foster the spread of the Simian Flu virus while attempting to foster the infected apes’ civilization.

Experience Planet of the Apes on a global scale – See how humanity responds as you infect the world with a lethal, artificial virus. Can they handle a global pandemic while dealing with a growing nation of genetically evolved, intelligent apes?

Control communities of intelligent apes – As well as infecting humans, evolve your disease in parallel to allow ape-to-ape transmission and improve their cognitive abilities. Ape colonies will generate DNA whilst helping apes avoid detection from humans.

For one species to rise, another must fall? – Master new gameplay mechanics and strategies to help apes become the dominant species on the planet. Decide when your apes should rampage against research labs, move apes to avoid detection from military drones and use ape migration to prevent scientists from conducting aggressive ape experiments.

It was recently revealed that Plague Inc: Evolved will be coming to the Xbox One later this year as part of the [email protected] program for indie games.
