Ndemic Creations is excited to announce that Plague Inc: Evolved is coming to Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program.
Plague Inc: Evolved is a unique mix of high strategy and terrifyingly realistic simulation. Your pathogen has just infected ‘Patient Zero’ – now you must bring about the end of human history by evolving a deadly, global Plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself…
James Vaughan, the creator of the game, said that “bringing Plague Inc: Evolved to the Xbox One is a fantastic step for the game. Microsoft is a great partner and I can’t wait until people can design deadly pathogens from the comfort of their living room! (hurrah)”
Originally a global smash hit on mobile, Plague Inc. has remained at the top of the charts since launch with over 25 million players and more than 900,000 games played each day. It is the 2nd most successful paid mobile game of the last two years and expanded onto PC in the form of Plague Inc: Evolved earlier this year.
Plague Inc: Evolved is entirely redeveloped from the mobile game and has a host of new features, including 3D graphics, competitive and cooperative multiplayer and a custom content creator. The game will be feature-complete at launch, and additional diseases and scenarios will be available via free update post-release.
A hit with both players and critics, Plague Inc. has also attracted the attention of media, educators and health professionals worldwide due to its highly authentic disease infection models. The CDC even asked the creator to come and speak about the simulations in in the game!
Some of the newest diseases to join the Plague Inc. family were the mind-controlling Neurax Worm, the zombie-producing Necroa Virus, the Black Death, and the 30,000-year old Frozen pithovirus. More coming soon…
