Plague Inc. is a pretty relevant game for people at the moment and although it might seem out of turn to be playing it, people are still looking for ways to spread viruses quicker.

The game revolves around releasing and developing viruses to infect the world’s population. Much like the current pandemic hitting the world, these things can be hard to stop once they get moving.

Plague Inc. is basically playing the real-life scenario we are currently in. Of course, there’ll be some people who find it a bit distasteful but then again, people play the likes of Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto all year round.

The aim of Plague Inc. is to get your viruses to spread as quickly as possible. There are a number of ways to do this so we thought we’d tip you off on some of them.

Spread your virus quicker by targeting the poor

This sounds a simple concept but if you target a country with a big population but limited funding behind it, you’re more likely to see a spread quicker.

For example, India is the standout when it comes to this in Plague Inc. A country with around a billion people is quickly going to become infected. Furthermore, in the game at least, they don’t have the funding to quickly develop vaccines.

This should help you get off to a good start and infect a densely populated area in no time at all.

Start off with an Island

For some reason in the game, infecting islands seems to be a bit more tricky. Now, this could be due to the fact they are exactly that, islands. In the simplest of thought processes, I guess it’s harder to infect somewhere that’s not connected to anything else.

In Plague Inc., it makes sense to start off with an island first. That way you can work your way across the whole island and have it out of the way before you move on to bigger and better things.
