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 latest and greatest version of Situation Outbreak has been released to the public! This update focuses on balancing gameplay and making the mod more enjoyable for everyone, especially newcomers. Check out all the changes for yourself!

Visit our website @ www.situationoutbreak.info for mirrors, or just download v1.61 from ModDB. This time around, a patch installer is available for players who already have v1.60 installed on their computer.
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.
All ARP servers, Cherry's servers, and CvG servers have already been updated to v1.61 and are ready to go. It is recommended you only play on these servers until all other SO servers have updated to v1.61. You wouldn't want to be playing v1.60 after waiting all that time for v1.61, now would you? =P
