Outbreak: Shades of Horror will focus on online co-op. This is so that multiple players can jump into a series of fresh new stories. At the same time, stepping away from the typical horror trope of highly trained operatives. Those that can single handedly tear through hordes of the undead. Instead, the game focuses on regular civilians working together to escape. Players must use co-op and the unique abilities of each character. Due to maximizing their chances of survival and escape. If a player succumbs to the infection, they’ll return as another member of the undead. With their former friend now working against them in Outbreak: Shades of Horror. So the remaining human players will have to decide what to do. Either, do the humane thing and put them down. Or abandon them to join the throngs of undead flooding the city.
Potential players can get a taste of what’s to come in the tense playable Demo on Steam. With support for both Linux and Windows PC.
This also includes Google Stadia. For the first time, anyone with the link to the demo can play for 60 minutes on Stadia, even if they don’t have an account. Players with a Stadia account will have unlimited access.
