Dawn of the Planet of the Apes infects top mobile/PC game Plague Inc. with official Simian Flu content


New bar set for movie-game tie-ins – fans of both franchises worldwide enjoying high quality, innovative gameplay linked to the summer movie blockbuster

Ndemic Creations, in partnership with 20th Century Fox, has released the Simian Flu update to its hit mobile game Plague Inc., allowing players to interact with the world of the newly released Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie.

James Vaughan, the creator of Plague Inc., said “The Simian Flu update in Plague Inc. will show the world how awesome a movie/game partnership can be for players. Plague Inc. and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes fit together perfectly and I can’t wait for everyone to start infecting the world with their new genetically modified virus.”

Plague Inc. is one of the most popular mobile games of the last two years, and Ndemic Creations have created a brand new world for players to explore and infect. Players will get a glimpse into the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes when they create their own customised “Simian Flu” virus from the movie:

  • Experience Dawn of the 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.
  • See one species rise as another falls – 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.

The update to Plague Inc. is out now on iOS, Android, PC & Mac. It will be included in the future Xbox One edition.

It is available in English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (simplified/traditional), German, French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.
