Think you can survive?

Looking for something spooky to play as we inch closer to Halloween? Outbreak: Epidemic should be a great choice, mixing survival and horror to keep you sweating with every turn. Check out full details on the game below.

Outbreak: Epidemic will soon be available on the Nintendo Switch :)

The latest co-op survival horror game from Dead Drop Studios, Outbreak: Epidemic is the most polished, biggest Outbreak game yet – dripping with scares, atmosphere, and the nearly endless replayability you’ve come to expect from the Outbreak series. The other 4 titles in the franchise will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in a few weeks!

Outbreak: Epidemic is powered by the next-generation Outbreak engine and includes the Campaign, Onslaught, and Experiments modes from the Steam version – all sporting classic tough-as-nails gameplay for true survival horror aficionados.

On the Nintendo Switch, players will face the nightmare up close through over-the-shoulder combat and exploration in a fully-optimized port that makes the most out of Nintendo’s portable – leveraging Joy-Con controllers, the console’s touchscreen, and HD Rumble!

Quality Mode/Frame Rate Mode (Options Menu): Quality mode features higher quality graphics with full dynamic shadows. Frame rate mode turns off full dynamic shadows thus greatly improving frame rate across the board.

Portable Gameplay: The only game in the Outbreak series to be playable on a handheld device. The full content is here, uncut.

Tabletop 2-Player Co-Op: Play through the game with a friend in tabletop mode – or together in docked full-screen mode – using Joy-Con controllers. The Switch Pro Controller is supported as well!
