Situation Outbreak is an Orange Box mod about the impending zombie apocalypse. Armed with nothing but a 9mm and a pair of brass knuckles, you must do whatever it takes to survive against the thousands of zombies that used to be your friends and neighbors. The cost of failure is nothing less than your free will. There are no heroes. No single person can save the world and there are not enough bullets to go around. The only thing left to do is to kill the damned, hoping that you don’t end up like them.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for varion :p. We have many features which you can't really experience in sp need to be in-game such as the health regeneration also all weapons work maybe you never went over the weapon pickups correctly sometimes they are abit buggy.

They don't develop Sven Coop 2 because they think the people won't need it because they already have synergy and obsidian conflict but they really don't have to be afraid. If they make a few good maps everyone will play it, at least because the name is so popular.
