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.

It's about time we get this out, eh? We figure you guys have waited just about long enough. Sorry for the delay!

Posted by on

v1.52 of Situation Outbreak will be released on Saturday. While the update will mostly include bug fixes and minor tweaks to official maps to make them fairer, we also have a few new features worth noting here that we'd like you to know about:

  • Improved textures for the M4, 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 animations
  • New map for the Overlord gamemode: so_ovr_lumberyard

There's much more to be discussed here, but we figured we'd leave the rest for the community to discover as they start playing again on Saturday. Stay tuned to Situation Outbreak!

As of now no, however that doesn't mean it won't make it into v1.52. In fact, I'll add it to my to-do list right now and see what I can do. Thanks for reminding me. =P

Not-so-impressive? The improvements in v1.52 will certainly improve gameplay, but hell, if you aren't a fan of the mod in its current state, I'm not sure what we can do about that. =P

There's always five servers online at any given time: two offical ARP servers and three of Cherry's. =D ... just keep refreshing your server browser if you don't see them, but you should.

If you have visited a server in the past and then can't find any up, check your history cause they tend to show up there pending on whether or not the server is refreshing.
