After almost 3 years living with Covid-19, we have now extended the Covid Invasion game with new virus variants, just like we know it from real life. This makes the game more difficult and thrilling during playing.

Here are the new virus variants implemented:

All of the new three virus variants behave slightly different; depending on the difficulty level, some of the new variants will appear sooner or later in the game. Luckily, the rest of the game stays the same like in the first version.  So if you already played and succeeded in the first version of the game, you may master the Special Edition quickly.

As an appetizer, here is some footage of playing the Special Edition:
