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.
The mod is in a dire need of a patch, so we've decided to go ahead and announce a final release date for v1.61.

The team has reached an agreement: v1.61 will be released on Thursday. Sorry for the delay, but we wanted to make sure we addressed most every issue regarding v1.60 before shipping this patch out.
Here are some notable changes you can expect:
We've completely reworked the Holdout gamemode, so allow me to explain that as well. The following is quoted from a thread on our website:
£cho wrote:When a zombie enters a holdout zone, they trigger a ten-second timer. A message is displayed that an intruder has entered the holdout zone and a sound is played to ensure all players are aware of the intrusion. If the survivors manage to clear the holdout zone within ten seconds, they live to fight another day. Conversely, if the survivors fail to clear out the holdout zone in ten seconds, they will loose.
Hopefully this will make the gamemode more exciting and balance out harder maps like stronghold, which by the way has been changed significantly to support these changes. Canals has received some updates as well.
That's all for now. See you Thursday!
