At Plague Inc. now you can destroy humanity with fake news

In the epidemic simulator Plague Inc. a new scenario has appeared, thanks to which players will be able to fully experience

the destructive impact of fake news.

In honor of what

It's surprising that for such "oldies" as PlagueInc. updates are still coming out. The game was released in 2012 and still remains one of the highest quality and most popular strategies for the mobile market. Relevance plays an important role in such success - developers continually add new modes and scenarios timed to coincide with the release of various films or, as in our case, potential scandals. Very soon, on December 12, 2019, early parliamentary elections will be held in the UK, and in 2020 the race for the US presidency will begin. Such important events will certainly be surrounded by rumors and the developers of Plague Inc. decided to warn their players.

The essence of the regime

In the "Fake News" update, players will have to...come up with fake news and make the whole world believe it with the help of modern technology and psychological techniques. Special fact-checking organizations will combat the spread of fakes. When developing the mode, Ndemic Creations collaborated with similar companies - Full Fact and Politfact.

“The game presents a new look at the extremes of misinformation and the serious consequences it can have for democracy, health and society” - Full Fact

Creator of Plague Inc. James Vaughan also added that the mechanics of the game are “scary” to display chaos, which leads to false facts, false news and false information.

Update "Fake News" has already been released for iOS, a release for PC, consoles and Android will take place in the near future.
