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?

ok - so now about Contagion, I really looking forward to this release, mainly because I hope that it will get some more serious users online in Australia. As this was my only complaint about ZPS, since it was free not too many people took it seriously here in Australia. Anyway look forward to it and hopefully one day seeing a polished version of ZPS on the PS3 - seriously that would be way cool as there are no decent zom games on that platform atm

Hey Guys
BIG fan of ZPS - got really into it for several months there, and in my opinion it is simply the greatest Zom game ever. Why well the unique gameply of crossing over to Zom after you die. It makes for a completely unique gaming experience which is the most honest representation of what a Zom outbreak would be like.
Plus the pure exhileration of being the last survivor to get on the chopper in Biotech... well its gotta be one of the greatest moments in gaming history.

I'm sure this question has been asked before and I apologize if that's the case, but just to clarify, this is a multiplayer co-op game (two players), correct? The current game description is a little vague to me, that's all.

Hi. I'm a newbie to 3ds max... and, I have to say, your mod\game\thing really inspired me to really dig deep and try to learn the program. I know the basics and stuff, but it would really be helpful if you guys could post a timelapse video of you making\modelling a character\zombie, or a viewmodel, if you have the time.

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.
