For many of us, 2020 was a year to forget. The arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic pretty much dominated the entire year, and things are not looking to change anytime soon. In the video game world, events have been cancelled, games development affected, and there has been a change in mentality when it comes to working from home. In this new reality, perhaps it might make us feel better if it seemed like we have some form of control. To help with that, developers of Plague Inc. have kept to their word. New DLC has arrived as Plague Inc: The Cure. Instead of initiating the most lethal of pandemics, your job will be to find the cure to one.
After announcing the development of the new DLC, Ndemic Creations have finally done it. The team has worked together with health experts around the world, including the WHO, CEPI, and GOARN, in order to give players something substantial to experience in the game.
By playing through the Plague Inc: The Cure DLC, you will have a better idea of just what goes into a global disease response. As for the gameplay mechanics itself, it is certainly a stark departure.
The path to life
Players must work hard to battle the pandemic. This will involve activities such as hunting down the diseases with research teams, limiting outbreaks through social programs, and supporting control measures with economic proposals. It is all in service to find a viable vaccine that is researched, manufactured, and ultimately distributed.
This will not work if you are on your own, as getting every country involved is key to success in the Plague Inc: The Cure DLC. If you feel ready to take on this task, it is a simple affair.
The DLC will be free for all Plague Inc. players until the COVID-19 situation is under control. That certainly gives us plenty of time to do so. However, just like we want this pandemic affair to be over as soon as possible, you should not be dallying around. Find the DLC on Steam now, and get working.
