We've been working on quite a few different things recently, and that has all come together into one big update which has something for everyone, both in the Main Game and the Scenario Creator.
Zombies, Mind Control, Intelligent Apes and more come to the Scenario Creator!
The Scenario Creator has been a huge success already, and we can't wait to see what people do now that they can modify all of Plague Inc.'s diseases, as well as controlling the actions that Governments take to respond to diseases.
Diseases revamped and human AI improved
We've been analysing everyone's feedback on the core game over the last few months, and so have adjusted Prion and Parasite to make sure they encourage different strategies. Trojan planes from the Neurax Worm have also been tweaked. Last, but definitely not least, we have made significant improvements to human AI routines which control the identification and response to infectious disease threats.
Access to Necroa Virus and Cheats
The zombie making Necroa Virus is one of the hardest diseases, and many people find it difficult to lead their zombie armies to victory against the mighty Z Com. As a result, we have moved Necroa so that people will encounter it later in the game. We've also opened up some of the cheats to more players by making the core ones unlock on normal difficulty. You still have to beat everything on mega-brutal to unlock the final ones though...
As always, there is still lots more to come. We are currently working on expanding Scenario Creator functionality further, to let you create game-changing events and narrative pop ups for your scenario using powerful mod/scripting tools. After that we will be working on multiplayer, and then we will be doing final optimisation, porting (linux) and polish to get ready to leave Early Access! Not giving a date yet though :P
