Roseville, MN – April 20, 2021. Asmodee USA announced their exclusive English language distribution of Plague Inc: The Board Game and the Plague Inc: Armageddon expansion. Both new and existing fans of the successful Plague Inc. digital game will easily be able to evolve novel pathogens as they battle to infect the world!
Plague Inc. is one of the world’s most popular paid mobile games with over 160 million players and has topped the charts continuously since its release in 2012. Available on mobile, PC and console, it has been repeatedly praised by the CDC and WHO for how it portrays the details of a global pandemic response in a fun and accessible manner.
More recently in 2020, Plague Inc: The Cure was released as an expansion to the mobile game. Developed with the help of world health and infectious disease experts, including the WHO, players aim to save the world by managing proper global pandemic responses. The addition of a tabletop version to family of Plague Inc. products allows a new community of players to experience the smash hit in an all-new way.
In Plague Inc: The Board Game, one to four players take on the role of a mutating deadly disease, evolving unique symptoms to customize their pathogen as they compete against each other to infect countries across the globe. The Plague Inc: Armageddon expansion adds an additional player, and everyone is sure to enjoy the strategic depth, new abilities and the radically different disease types it introduces to the game.
“We are thrilled to include Plague Inc: The Board Game amongst the other successful tabletop titles in Asmodee’s catalog,” said James Vaughan, CEO and Founder of Ndemic Creations, “It’s an infectious game, please remember to wash your hands after playing!”
“Plague Inc: The Board Game is one of the best digital to tabletop adaptations around and we’re truly excited to offer it to our retailers and their communities,” remarked Andre Kieren, Head of Asmodee USA Distribution. “We believe that together we can introduce digital and tabletop gamers – casual and experienced – to a new version of the game that will inspire some truly amazing stories and good times.”
Plague Inc: The Board Game and the Plague Inc: Armageddon expansion will be available at retailers in May 2021.
