Indie developer Drop Dead Studios have released their title onto Steam this past week called Outbreak. Set in a hospital in which some strange disease has been unleashed, players are tasked to team up with four friends to complete environmental puzzles and survive a zombie onslaught at the same time.
With four unique classes at your disposal and several random elements, Outbreak looks to be a solid and replayable co-op experience - the kind that generates those "had to be there" moments that make co-op gaming so great.
Here's the full feature list:
Friendly play: 4-player online co-op multiplayer featuring voice chat.
Cut the cord: All modes playable in offline single-player.
Dark atmosphere: Explore a deserted hospital infested by the undead.
Brutal difficulty: Your character only has a single life; includes 3 difficulty settings.
Limited inventory: Decide which items are worthy, and which should be left behind.
Expansive arsenal: Defend yourself with a multitude of firearms and melee weapons.
Challenging puzzles: Scour each room to solve puzzles and learn about the outbreak.
High replayability: Semi-random enemy and item layouts make every playthrough unique.
Distinct survivors: Four playable heroes with unique attributes and starting equipment.
Essential equipment: Earn during play or trade with other users.
Play your way: Customizable gamepad, mouse and keyboard controls.
Worldwide multiplayer: Cloud-based backend with region selector means no NAT issues.
The game is out now for PC, Mac and Linux and will set you back $15.
