Plague Inc. is to be updated with Simian Flu from the new movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Ndemic Creations has announced.

Thanks to a partnership with 20th Century Fox, players will be able to control communities of intelligent apes spreading the Simian Flu - a genetically modified virus created in a Gen-Sys lab.

Update Features

  • Experience Planet of the Apes on a global scale - See how humanity responds as you infect the world with a lethal, artificial virus. Can they handle a global pandemic while dealing with a growing nation of genetically evolved, intelligent apes?
  • Control communities of intelligent apes - As well as infecting humans, evolve your disease in parallel to allow ape-to-ape transmission and improve their cognitive abilities. Ape colonies will generate DNA whilst helping apes avoid detection from humans.
  • For one species to rise, another must fall? - Master new gameplay mechanics and strategies to help apes become the dominant species on the planet. Decide when your apes should rampage against research labs, move apes to avoid detection from military drones and use ape migration to prevent scientists from conducting aggressive ape experiments.

Look out for the update to Plague Inc. on iOS and Android, and for Plague Inc. Evolved on PC and Mac. The upcoming Xbox One edition will also include the update.
