The last few weeks have been extremely busy for me as everything races full Steam (!) ahead for 20th February, when Plague Inc: Evolved launches in Early Access. It’s a nerve-wracking and stressful time but also extremely exciting - I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of the game!
A lot of people have been asking questions about how Early Access will work with Plague Inc: Evolved. I am launching on Early Access because the core Plague Inc. game is done and I want to let players help me shape the major new features that will be added - like Multiplayer and the Scenario Creator. At the moment, you can play all of the core single player game with 7 disease types and 3 cheat modes – redeveloped from scratch for PC with significant enhancements.
Between you and me, a lot of the other features are also very nearly ready to go, but I want to make sure they’re perfect before sharing them with you and getting your feedback. If everything goes smoothly, it will be feature-complete and out of Early Access in a few months.
Plague Inc: Evolved combines the original critically acclaimed gameplay of Plague Inc. on mobile with significant, all-new features for PC:
- Infectious Multiplayer - cooperative and competitive gameplay modes let you team up to fight the cure with friends, or compete in a race to kill the world.
I hope you’re all as excited as I am for Thursday! Some other highlights to watch out for:
- I will be releasing a brand new trailer for Plague Inc: Evolved shortly – fans of Half Life may recognise the doctor in it…
- I'll be doing a on Wednesday 26th February at 10am PST - if anyone has any questions for me, please come and say hi!
- An announcement on the next mobile update is coming shortly - very cool stuff is planned!
