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.

Report article RSS Feed v1.52 Released!

After months and months of development, the latest version of Situation Outbreak, v1.52, is now available to the public. Download away!

Posted by jamespizzurro on Nov 14th, 2009

That's right, it's finally here: Situation Outbreak v1.52. Visit for download links and much, much more.


v1.52 brings many new features to the table, along with plenty of bug fixes and two brand-new maps. Here's just some of what's new:

  • Improved textures for the M4, AK47, deagle, and chainsaw
  • More health, points, and ability to deal more damage for the zombie overlord in the Overlord gamemode
  • More blood, gore and a simple gib system
  • Damage hikes for the MAC-10, M4, AK47, and chainsaw
  • Point requirement reductions for all melee weapons
  • New boss system for Survival, Objective, and Holdout gamemodes, including the first new boss NPC: the cloud
  • New weapon: pump-action shotgun
  • Drastically improved point system that rewards players points based on damage, not kills
  • Improved 9mm, M4, and AK47 animations
  • New map for the Overlord gamemode: so_ovr_lumberyard
  • New map for the Survival gamemode: so_sv_forest


Dedicated server files will be made available by the end of the today today (US EST, GMT -5). Sorry for the delay, but they are awfully large files! If you already have an SO v1.51 Dedicated Server installed though, you can obtain the patch from our website.

All of our official ARP servers and Cherry's servers have been updated and are ready to go. It is recommended you only play on these servers until all other unofficial SO servers have updated to v1.52. You wouldn't want to be playing v1.51 after waiting for that v1.52 installer to finish, now would you?

So far from what i saw in this new version: the zombies spawn a bit too fast but i will let that slide, the improved animations truly are good, the pump action shotgun truly is useful and the new boss is just amazing.

This seems to be one of those so called "valve-mods".
(Valve supports their games after their release, instead of simply releasing and abandoding them.)

Nice job, guys.

Haha, for exactly those reasons! Unexpected scenarios that result in a tough, tough challenge and shake up the gameplay a bit.

HINT: Use a chainsaw on it. *wink*

Keep in mind this mod isn't exactly popular yet. We're trying to do our part to get the mod out there, but you can always help as well by telling people about us and spreading the word yourself, too. =)

What complications are you talking about exactly? Just download the full installer, run it, then restart Steam. As long as you already own at least one Source game and purchased/activated it via Steam, it's as simple as that.

Fine i will stop mee-ing about the game and let it get better over time

I had an idea for a boss zombie. a human like shadown that kinda jumps around, it doesnt have as much hp as the cloud its say. half or 75% its hp. but its faster. creepier. and a bit harder to see if your on your own without your flashlights.

i feel like a prick for being an *** about your mod. i'd like to help on it but i dont think you need another mapper

I'm glad to see you've decided to be constructive here and share your opinions about the mod so they can be assessed and implemented - and I'm not saying that sarcastically, I really mean it.

That's a pretty neat idea for a boss. It sounds a bit like the ghost boss we plan to implement for the next release, so I think we'll just incorporate your ideas with ours and the rest of the community's.

Oh, and we could always use another mapper. Always. lol

Of course, it's just that the mod isn't as popular as we hoped it would be by this time. Regardless, we will continue to update the mod and attempt to get the word out to everyone we can. There are usually a decent amount of people playing at night and other random times in the day though.
