Features fo the new Plague Inc Armageddon Expansion :
– New Fungus disease type: The Fungus is all about mobility and spreading across the globe. With its Spore Burst it can infect new countries with ease, but it can struggle to fully take them over. Puffball increases the power of future infections, and Fungal Bloom exploits empty countries to score DNA.
– New Bioweapon disease type: The Bioweapon is fully focused on lethality. The Armageddon ability lets it kill without worrying about the Death Dice. The more it kills, the stronger it becomes as Festering Corpses generates DNA from dead countries. However, it has limited infectivity and will need to consider Genetic Targeting to avoid eradicating itself.
– Genetic modification game mechanic: During the game, players can spend DNA to get unique Genes which power radical tactics and specialise their evolution. Paying too much for a Gene or letting an opponent get it for too little can be the difference between domination and extinction!
