Outbreak: Epidemic is a survival horror title with classic gameplay, strict inventory management, crushing enemies, horrific difficulty and more as you and a group of survivors try to survive the epidemic.

The infection spreads like never before in Outbreak: Epidemic, the latest co-op (PC only) and single-player (PC/Xbox One) survival horror nightmare.

Experience the nationwide epidemic as you and up to three friends lead Gwen, Renault, Kara and Tom through the undead apocalypse. Outbreak: Epidemic features the series classic tough-as-nails survival horror gameplay powered by the next-generation Outbreak engine across the Campaign Mode, Onslaught Mode and Experiments Mode.
