F2Z has just announced the next game in the Pandemic line, and this time it’s going to be a stand alone collector’s edition game. Pandemic Iberia takes place in 1848 on the Iberian peninsula, what is now modern day Spain and Portugal, and so in this game you are not only fighting against the various diseases of malaria, typhus, cholera, and yellow fever, you are also fighting the fledgling infrastructure of the time. Thus this edition of Pandemic will no doubt feature some new mechanics as you have to help develop the railway system as you go around distributing clean water to those affected by boat, carriage, or aforementioned train. As a fan of the Pandemic series and a huge fan of Pandemic Legacy, I am very much looking forward to find out more information and for it’s release in the fall of 2016. You can read the full press release from F2Z Entertainment below and check out the reveal video on the Pandemic Facebook page.
For immediate release
April 28, 2016
F2Z Entertainment, proud publisher of the brands Filosofia, Z-Man Games, Pretzel Games and Plaid Hat Games, is very excited to officially present the next entry in our beloved Pandemic series: Pandemic Iberia! In Pandemic Iberia, the year is 1848, and diseases are spreading fast under the burning sun of the Iberian Peninsula. Take on the roles of a nurse, a railway man, and a rural doctor, among many others, and work as a team to push back the new threats that are malaria, typhus, cholera, and the yellow fever.
From Barcelona to Lisboa, travel by carriage, by boat, or by train, and help the Iberian populace by developing railways and distributing purified water in this new version of Pandemic. Discover a unique part of the world during the historically significant time period that is the construction of the first railroad in the Iberian Peninsula called the Spring of Nations.
Being a Collector’s Edition, note that this game will have a one-time only print run! Pandemic Iberia is set to be released later this year, in fall 2016. More details to come.
