spiritual successor

The Outbreak series revolves around reliving terrifying moments from survival horror history, and Outbreak: Contagious Memories takes you back to one of the most important eras.

But for those who prefer a more modern take on the greats, you can also choose between over-the-shoulder or first-person shooter views with precise aiming and modern movement! This is also the first title in the Outbreak series to have full voice acting throughout the game, and it’s definitely as cheesy as you’d expect!


Retro technical innovation

Picture a late 90s 3D title married to the next-gen technology of 2022, and you have a pretty good idea of ​​where our nightmare is headed. Real-time reflections and shadows, dynamic gore that sticks to the environment, and much more, combined with high frame rates and fast loading times. The environments will capture you with their dark and moody hallways, alongside a vicious thunderstorm raging all around you. You and your flashlight hope to find peace in a world that is burning to the ground. Your enemies will use every advantage they can find to kill you, leap from the shadows and surprise you just when you feel safest.


Outbreak: Contagious Memories is the most technically advanced title in the series and takes full advantage of Xbox Series X|S to amplify all these great effects while supporting great frame rates, even in optional two-player co-op split screen! But for those of you still waiting to upgrade, you’ll find the Xbox One and Xbox One X versions of the title are tailored for those consoles, still with fast loading times, snappy framerates, and more bells and whistles than you might think!


Bonus modes, unlockables and more!

This undead epidemic is bursting with everything you’d expect in 90s survival horror. Experience the story mode, complete with cheesy voice acting and over-the-top gore, as you team up with fellow survivors to escape a city that collapses around you. Once you survive that nightmare, you’ll jump into the unlockable bonus mode, Operation: Rabid Wolf, a hardcore arcade experience inspired by classic Resident Evil bonus modes where you fight your way through hordes of undead across a wide cast of characters, each with their own gear, as you fight to rescue survivors scattered across the city. Finally, you spend points you earn to unlock gameplay modifiers such as damage resistance, unlimited ammo, explosive ammo, and other fun modes that have to be seen to be believed.

All content in the game can be played solo or in two-player split-screen co-op. In co-op, you and your partner are on an equal footing – with your own supplies, weapons and limited amount of health. You must work together to outsmart the hordes, solve puzzles, share resources and survive.
