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 - Local Co-op Split-Screen Support

It's been a long time coming for many but we've finally added Local Co-op Split-screen without the need like other games to go through a series of steps to get it working right. 2 Game-pads, Keyboard & Mouse & Game-pad, the days of Consoles and PC games lacking this feature may be dying out but this is something we grew up with and playing with a friend or sibling without having to lan was a hot topic for gamers and owners of Contagion so we can now tick our Local Co-op in the listings. We will continue to watch over it and tweak here and there to improve the overall quality of course (no aim assist for game-pads, sorry heh).

Our Survivor AI accuracy is dependent on difficulty as well as commands that are allowed making Extraction while it was still difficult, more realistic and this will only improve throughout the year. We've also enabled more server commands for Server Hosts to use to setup their servers closer to what they'd like them to be!

Check out what went out in today's update!

June 16th Update - Changelog:

  • Added split-screen support to Contagion, also added menu in options to enable it
  • Adjusted survivor AI accuracy to be less perfect on easier difficulties
  • Enabled additional console commands to be allowed to be changed by server hosts
  • Fixed the ability to drop a grenade before infection and kill ex-teammates
  • Fixed survivor AI being able to receive commands while inside a house or while climbing
  • Fixed IED and phone screen disappearing near water or mirror elements sometimes
  • Fixed memory leak issues with multiple flash-lights
  • Fixed possible server crash-loop when blending as a zombie


This week we have updates on both Linux and the Mac build. Valve has been quite helpful in keeping on things an we have started working not only on our Linux but also our Mac builds! Whether they are able to release simultaneously or not is yet to be seen but this is great news to those who are eager to play Contagion on their Linux machine/Steam Machine and/or Mac!

Also for those that missed our Official Contagion - Let's Play Top 10 Countdown with prizes exceeding $12,500 check it out!

For the rules & prizes visit -HERE-


As well as Episode 26th (was delayed 2 weeks) of our weekly Friday Frenzy Contagion Stream & Giveaway!



Next week we're hoping to release our updated melee system that will definitely change the way the game is played and for many this is also another update that's been eagerly awaited. Will also try and grab some sneak peaks of our current maps in development/nearing release like CE_Biotec :)

More updates throughout the month and every month of 2014!

He're a look at what we're working on atm -Here-

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 canĀ“t respawn just if somebody use a defibrillator(or something like that) so it would be somekind of a Hardcore mode.
