The Two Point Hospital Superbug Initiative is a brand-new feature that will have players working together cooperatively to accomplish tasks for in-game rewards. This feature isn't quite ready for prime time, but interested players can hop into a beta test and check it out for themselves.

Have a look at the Two Point Hospital Superbug Initiative trailer to get an idea of how it all works:

The Superbug Initiative will see players accomplishing tasks listed in a menu. These tasks require you to complete certain in-game actions. Each player can contribute to the overall mission as long as they're a part of the Superbug Network.

 
 

If the team of players complete enough tasks along the tree, they'll be able to unlock a brand-new in-game item. Only a single reward has been specified so far: the Ectovat, a container that collects ectoplasm from the ghosts that haunt your hospital. This ectoplasm can then be used to pep up your workers or heal the patients in your hospital.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
