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.

v1.60 Release Images v1.60 Release Images

What's new in v1.60? A whole lot. On top of the usual bug fixes and whatnot, here's a quick rundown of some of the highlights in no particular order:

  • New military soldier NPC for mappers
  • Three new weapons: the Benelli semi-automatic shotgun, Zombait!, and the AS50
  • New real-time ambient sound system, mood changes depending upon situation
  • New gamemode, Extermination, featuring the new Military team
  • Gib system replaced with gore - and lots of it
  • Smarter NPCs capable of opening doors and jumping to and from small distances
  • Reworked weight system, depends on weapon carried and current health
  • Improved incendiary grenade and other explosive-based weapons
  • Four new maps: so_sv_deadcity, so_ext_plague, so_ext_slums, and so_obj_mainstreet
  • New, totally reworked version of so_sv_chapel
  • Rehauled Infection gamemode, including new zombie classes for the Undead
  • Dramatically improved zombie knockback system, tied it to weapon damage
  • A new boss NPC: the ghost

There's still much more that could be discussed here, but I'll leave the rest for you guys to discover for yourselves so as not to give it all away at once.

v1.60 Release Images

Dedicated server files will be made available by tomorrow (US EST, GMT -5). Sorry for the delay, but they are awfully large files! If you already have an SO v1.52 Dedicated Server installed though, you can just download the client installer and extract the "so" folder from it into your server files.

UPDATE: Dedicated server files are now available! Click here.

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 v1.60. You wouldn't want to be playing v1.52 after waiting all that time for v1.60, now would you? =P

Stay tuned to Situation Outbreak by signing up on our website and joining our Steam group for all the latest information regarding this modification. Anyhow, thanks for reading, have fun and enjoy this new release!

P.S.
If you enjoy playing the modification, please vote for us for MOTY! We hope to at least make it to the top 100, but in order to do that, we need your help! Vote today!

Cool, can't wait for it to finish downloading. I see there is a new boss called the ghost. I'm glad you added that since i always thought it would be cool. I can't wait to get back into mapping and play around with the new npc and gamemode. Good luck guys in the future and happy new year!

I don't know why you're having issues as no one else has reported any issues getting the mod to work. The freezing bug can be resolved with a simple reconnect if that's what you're talking about. Did you follow all of the installation instructions included in this release? You must remove your "so" folder manually before attempting to install this release, otherwise you're going to run into some serious issues.

The Military are stronger than the Survivors as they have more health, however the Survivors move faster to offset this advantage. If we made the Military any stronger, the Survivors wouldn't stand a chance. Think about it.
