Pandemic: Rising Tide Announced By Z-Man Games

August 30, 2017 by brennon

A new version of Pandemic has been announced by Z-Man Games. The new take on the game, Rising Tide, sees you fighting against flood waters in the Netherlands rather than battling diseases.

Note: We are aware of the ongoing situation in America with Hurricane Harvey, as are Z-Man games, who have even pledged to put some of the proceeds of Rising Tide towards flood relief programs.

The game sees you taking on the role of the historic planners and builders who are trying to stop the encroaching sea waters and replacing old fashioned methods with up-to-date ones.

You will be building shelters, defences and trying to stop the flood waters from spilling over into nearby regions in a cooperative game experience similar to what you’re familiar with when playing the regular Pandemic.

While of course the situation in America right now is terrible, this does sound like a nice twist on the original format.

Again, we extend our warmest hugs and best wishes to those BoW members and more who may have been affected by Hurricane Harvey (you can see a crisis area map HERE) and wish you all the best!

Do you think you’ll be picking up this version of the game?
