Plague Inc: Evolved - Early Access page

WARNING - Plague Inc: Evolved is currently in active development and features dangerous pathogens – please wash your hands after playing to avoid infection! Only get it if you are ok with sometimes encountering bugs (not the good, world-killing kind)

Plague Inc: Evolved is now available on Steam Early Access. On this page you can get more information on our development plans, help set priorities and give us your feedback. For more about the game in general, please visit the main Plague Inc: Evolved page, or the dedicated FAQ page. If you want to discuss it anything about the game, visit our forum.

Current Game Status

At the moment, you can play the following, all of which has been redeveloped from scratch for PC, Mac and Linux with significant enhancements:

  • All of the core single player game with 7 disease types and 6 cheat modes
  • The mind-controlling Neurax Worm
  • The zombie-making Necroa Virus
  • The Simian Flu from the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie
  • The Official Scenarios
  • The Speed Run gameplay mode

‚ÄčOn top of this, we have the following features that are unique to Plague Inc: Evolved

  • Custom Scenarios - play 1000s of scenarios created by the community
  • The Scenario Creator tool - create your own worlds and diseases and share them on the Steam Workshop
  • VS. Multiplayer - the world is unlucky enough to be infected by two deadly plagues that are battling for control of the world. Whoever infects the world first wins!

We will now be working on COOP multiplayer and fixing / polishing various things before releasing the game and leaving Early Access in early 2016. Not long to go now :)

We hope to release a new build every few weeks - however, it may take longer when adding in particularly large pieces of functionality.

For a full list of previous change logs, please check out the Announcements section on our Steam page or our forum.

What's coming in the next evolution (update)?

Competitive Multiplayer is out and people are battling away. Development is now fully-focused on co-op multiplayer...
