Turn-Based strategy game Quarantine releases out of Early-Access

Quarantine, a turn-based strategy game about waging war on pandemic diseases has left early access this week and has officially launched on Steam!

The game places you in the boots of the Director at “Pandemic Defense” a biosecurity agency tasked with quarantining deadly infectious diseases before they destroy humanity.

Originally hitting early access in February of this year, the team at 505 Games have not stuck in early access hell like some other games, they have also been consistent in providing a great number of updates over the course of the past few months for the game itself.

At the moment here in the UK the game has a massive 40% off launch deal and while the game doesn’t scream out to my interests (and other peoples it would seem as well, it currently has mixed reviews) it does look like an interesting title, and should be worth the £6.99 the developers are originally asking.

INFECTIOUS STRATEGY GAME QUARANTINE BREAKS OUT OF EARLY ACCESS
Join the Race to Find a Cure in Suspenseful Turn-Based Strategy Game, Out Today
 
CALABASAS, Calif. – May 24, 2017 –Quarantine has left Early Access and officially launched on Steam today. The riveting single-player game, developed by Sproing and published by 505 Games, enlists players to contain outbreaks and cure diseases in an effort to save the world from deadly outbreaks. First released through Steam’s Early Access program, the team at Sproing used the platform to source feedback from players while the game was still in development. This allowed them to add and test new content and features, such as the workshop mode where players can create additional diseases. It also provided time to finetune gameplay mechanics to polish and improve the game before today’s official launch.
 
“For an independent developer, the Steam Early Access program is such a great tool,” said Harald Riegler, CEO Sproing. “Being able to get our game in front of players early on helped us finetune the experience and provided insight into what players wanted from a single-player strategy game. For our official launch, we’ve added new content based on that feedback, including several new diseases and the ability to name your own pathogens. We hope people will enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed working with the community to make it.”
 
In this immersive turn-based strategy game, players are enlisted as the director of Pandemic Defense, an international biosecurity agency, and must respond quickly to the onslaught of widespread, deadly contagions. When new pathogens arrive, every turn counts – survival rests in each player’s hands as they recruit a team of specialised operatives and deploy them on high-stakes missions across the globe. Time is of the essence as players research the disease, upgrade the tech and quarantine the outbreak before it infects —and kills— humanity.
 
Quarantine is rated Pegi 7 and is available now on Steam for £6.29 (with a 10% discount until May 31st) http://store.steampowered.com/app/489370/
