Pandemic: On the Brink - Mutation


You thought you saved humanity already? On the Brink: Mutation DLC brings a fifth, special, highly dangerous and purple, disease to eradicate.

During infections, the Mutation will pop up unpredictably and becomes a new disease to fight in contaminated cities. Making the game more challenging than ever before, this disease divides the team’s efforts and will cost them precious time.

You’ll need to plan ahead and coordinate the whole team to fight the new virus and find a cure for the 5th disease.

Pandemic: On the Brink - Virulent Strain


You thought you found the cure, but what happens when the diseases get stronger?

When your first epidemic appears, one of the diseases will become the Virulent Strain, a more aggressive and trickier disease. This disease can spread faster and is more difficult to cure, creating a new challenge for you and your team. Work together to utilize your special skills and contain this new pandemic!
