Contagion isn't your average Zombie Shooter but instead takes a more realistic and different approach to the popular genre with unique characters, environments, weapons, items, and a built in system that makes every round completely unpredictable with resources, objectives, and paths ever changing. From the creator of Zombie Panic: Source Brian "Tatsur0" Comer we introduce it's spiritual successor.

Contagion

As promised we've released our much anticipated Zombie Panic: Source Biotec Remake (Escape & Hunted Game-Modes), Stone Creek (Escape Game-Mode but in many ways Survival gameplay) the most popular Workshop map now in our Official rotation, our new Melee System that is not only much more user friendly but now with bladed weapons can more than cut off limbs but now decapitate zombies as well!

Of course we updated all existing maps with improvements, optimization, bug fixes, and exploits being removed.

Here is a look at these new maps!

Once again seek out the experimental vaccine that may hold the key humanities very survival! But it would seem that Biotec security was unable to either handle the horde invading... or was it from within?

So is this single player AND multiplayer? Will the zombies be like those in ZPS? Will they run? Will they look better? Will you charge money for this? I'm voting for this.

I think there is multiplayer as well as single player, and it is going to cost money.

Well as long as it's great quality and reasonably priced, I don't mind paying. When things cost money they go up in quality. That's why mods are almost always worse than games.

Almost, but not always.

Yeah, I hope this is like a 20$ game, can't see myself paying 50$ for a upgraded Zombie Panic, to be honest. :P

That's exactly my point. If they're gonna charge money, charge a reasonable price and make it worth it. I want a great deal like Half Life 2 was, where you received 20 hours of amazing gameplay and many, many available mods for around $10.

Yes but it also came with another game when it first came out (CSS) so that's not very fair to say that's how much Half Life 2 by itself cost. CSS now costs $20 on it's own. And it was $40 when it came out from what I've heard.

Even if it is early acces it has good balanced gameplay elements for casual gamer but I would say for a better long term experience there should be more maps (maybe community maps with HammerEditor I would create one ;) ) and a mode in which if you die you can´t respawn just if somebody use a defibrillator(or something like that) so it would be somekind of a Hardcore mode.
