There simply is no stopping Plague Inc. ($0.99). Since its debut nearly four and a half years ago, Plague Inc. has received a constant stream of updates which have mutated the game into new forms and spread it to a constantly expanding base of players. It’s like a plague! Its latest update has just hit the App Store and it’s very fitting for the forthcoming Halloween holiday. The new Shadow Plague is a “sentient, mutagenic pathogen" that “triggers a powerful thirst for blood in its chosen host", basically turning you into a vampire who must feed on humanity to grow into a giant bat capable of setting up lairs and shadow portals. Here is an exclusive look at the giant, vampiric bat in action.
Oops, that was something else. Anyway, in addition to the Shadow Plague content, this update also adds BREXIT as real in-game events, which you can use to “influence whether the UK has a soft, hard or ‘brutal’ Brexit – or even keep Britain in the EU after all!" As we’ve mentioned many times over the years, Plague Inc. is one of the best and most full-featured games you can spend an entire 99¢ on, and there’s no shortage of additional content available via IAP or good old-fashioned playing that it’s pretty unlikely you’ll ever run out of things to do. Check out the latest version of Plague Inc. and go on global-scale hunt to quench your newly found bloodlust.
