Zombie Panic: Source is a co-op oriented Survivor Vs Zombie multi-player survival horror modification for HL2. While our main priority is to make the mod as fun to play as possible, ZP:S plans to greatly expand on the core features of "Zombie panic" For HL1, with the obvious new features, impressive visuals, and of course atmospheric maps. More importantly ZP:S will not force players to fend against dumb and predictable AI, but instead keep the same intense thrill of surviving against intelligent and persistent player controlled zombies as the original.

We would like to start this announcement off by announcing our intended Full Release date: April 11th, 2014

Yes this means we plan to have Barlowe Square, Pioneer Express, All new mocap animations, all new sounds, new features, and a proper balancing and polish phase all done in roughly 1 1/2 months. This also includes an all new Main Menu/UI/Hud and sometime between now and then updated characters, each character with a complete voice set, localization for numerous Countries across the globe, and our Release Trailer plus quite a bit more.

All our hard work will start pouring out to those who already own a copy of the game and we will continue to release builds after Full Release which are not just the Free DLC we promised time and time again. The SDK will be released soon after Full Release and prior to release Server Hosts will have the options they require to host their servers as they wish (no ETA on Sourcemod/Metamod just yet but it is being worked on).

Today we released some significant changes and fixes as well as a new weapon and will continue to release new content and share via our social networks unreleased content more rapidly starting today.

It will be moddable but due to our more complex maps and scripting and 3rd party software it will not be as easy as HL2. That said we have created our own SDK tools that make modding easier in some ways and have managed to make wWise our new sound system moddable which was a close call.

We've already set the ground work up for both Mac and Linux. While we don't have an ETA our focus on it will jump to the top of the list soon after release (have to have a playable and balanced game set to promised release date). We will be releasing Linux and Mac!
