Vampiric Awakening is a Tier 2 symptom exclusive to the Shadow Plague DLC. This symptom causes the Shadow Plague to release toxic mutagens that will end up killing large numbers of the infected, as well as creating another Vampire in the process. This symptom is reusable, and it gets devolved automatically once a new vampire is created, thus allowing multiple vampires to exist in a single game.
- This is the only symptom outside of Custom Scenarios with a limited time of effect, the only symptom that automatically devolves, and the only symptom that can be evolved multiple times.
- Interestingly, this symptom cannot be devolved manually before a vampire is spawned, and instead it will devolve automatically.
