Outbreak: Epidemic

Dead Drop Studios have announced their first game for the Nintendo Switch: Outbreak: Epidemic. It will be released on October 22nd in Europe and North America, and it’s now available for digital pre-purchase for $12.74 (regular price from October 28th: $14.99).

This version of the game features some improvements and exclusive features:

  • On the Nintendo Switch, players will face the nightmare up close through over-the-shoulder combat and exploration in a fully-optimized port that makes the most out of Nintendo’s portable – leveraging Joy-Con controllers, the console’s touchscreen, and HD Rumble!
  • Quality Mode/Frame Rate Mode (Options Menu): Quality mode features higher quality graphics with full dynamic shadows. Frame rate mode turns off full dynamic shadows thus greatly improving frame rate across the board.
  • Portable Gameplay: The only game in the Outbreak series to be playable on a handheld device. The full content is here, uncut.
  • Tabletop 2-Player Co-Op: Play through the game with a friend in tabletop mode – or together in docked full-screen mode – using Joy-Con controllers. The Switch Pro Controller is supported as well!

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots:

The latest co-op survival horror game from Dead Drop Studios, Outbreak: Epidemic is the most polished, biggest Outbreak game yet – dripping with scares, atmosphere, and the nearly endless replayability you’ve come to expect from the Outbreak series.

Outbreak: Epidemic is powered by the next-generation Outbreak engine and includes the Campaign, Onslaught, and Experiments modes from the Steam version – all sporting classic tough-as-nails gameplay for true survival horror aficionados.

  • Claustrophobic over-the-shoulder gameplay.
  • Classic Story, Onslaught, and Experiments modes available in solo play or co-op.
  • Local 2-player split-screen co-op.
  • Several firearms and melee weapon choices.
  • Multiple difficulty settings: Easy, Normal, Biohazard, and Nightmare!
  • No Internet connection required.
  • Search areas, read logs, find keys, and solve puzzles to survive.
  • Quality and Performance modes may be selected from Options screen.
  • Supports Switch Pro Controller, Joy-Cons in tabletop mode, and HD Rumble.

And that’s not all: the four other entries in the series are also headed to the Nintendo Switch, and will be released in the upcoming weeks.
