505 Games and developer Sproing have announced that their turn-based strategy Quarantine will be released on 9 February.
In Quarantine players become the director of Pandemic Defense which is an international biosecurity agency. The game involves responding to global contagious outbreaks with the help of deployable specialised operatives. Diseases will have to be researched, tech will have to be upgraded and then affected areas need to be quarantined before the outbreak kills humanity. No pressure then.
The game will be releasing on Steam Early Access.
Quarantine Key Features
