Zombie games are still plentiful nowadays, but they’ve certainly moved on quite a bit since their boom in the late 90s. Are you looking for something that harkens back to the earlier days of zombie games? If so, Outbreak: Contagious Memories could be something to keep an eye on.
The 90’s-style survival horror title is coming to the Switch on April 6th, 2022, and it includes all the tropes and tactics you’d expect from a game looking to replicate the feeling of the original Resident Evil. You can get a full breakdown of what the game has to offer below.
Experience Lydia’s desperate escape from a city overrun with the undead. Meet fellow survivors, scrounge for supplies, fight off undead monstrosities in brutally gory combat, and manage extremely limited resources in this soft reboot of the Outbreak series.
Attempt to survive the nightmare with your choice of retro fixed camera, over-the-shoulder, and first-person shooter views, which you can change at any time during gameplay. Mo-cap animations, cheesy voiceovers and enhanced visuals await as you solve puzzles and fight for your life. Play the entire game in optional split-screen co-op or face the darkness alone. The entire experience is designed to play and feel like a late ’90s survival horror nightmare including rigid controls, crushing difficulty and much more.
Can you survive the outbreak, or will you become yet another victim of the undead hordes?
