Plague Inc. will soon let you save the world from COVID-19


In a complete 180, our fave plague-simulation game Plague Inc. will now let players save the world from nasty diseases. Ndemic Creations announced the new mode as part of the developer’s bid to support the fight against COVID-19.

The new add-on will be free to play for all users and is being crafted with the ‘help of experts from the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network and more’. There is no word yet on when the mode will be available.

In addition to keeping us hooked once again, Ndemic Creations also donated $250k (PHP 12.7M) to the WHO and Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI).

Since the start of the pandemic, Plague Inc. has experienced a surge in players and sales, most especially in China, where it became the top-selling app in the country. The game has received acclaim since it’s debut in 2012 for its informative gameplay, altho NDemic Creations has clarified that it is not meant to be 100% accurate.
