While there’s a good chance if you’re a Plague Inc. ($0.99) fan on iOS, you’ve been enjoying Mutation 11 for a bit now, Android fans have just now gotten in on the fun with the update just recently released for Android. Mutation 11’s big new feature for experienced players is the new Double Strain cheat. This allows you to start your plague in 2 countries at the same time, which should cause some fun new effects to happen while you play. It might be a bit easier of a mode, since it’s a lot tougher to fight an outbreak starting at two different spots at the same time, but that’s why it’s considered a cheat. Still, it’s a fun new way to play this venerable classic. To go along with this new Double Strain cheat, new headlines written by fans have been added in. Government AI response routines on higher difficulty levels have been improved as well. Particle effects have been enhanced, performance improvements are here, and some minor tweaks and fixes are also in Mutation 11 as well. And Ndemic says that they’re teasing something new for Mutation 12 in this Mutation 11 update. Hmm. Might be worth playing this update with a keen eye.
If you haven’t played Plague Inc. yet, then good news: the new Plague School feature is just for you, as this new tutorial will help instruct you in just how to be a master dealer of infectious death. This is something that a lot of games need to focus on – as they add lots of new features and content over time, they sometimes miss out on getting new players into the experience. Thankfully, if you haven’t played Plague Inc., it’s a bit easier to dive in now even after several years of updates.
