Outbreak v1.19.2 Released!Jul 1, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsOutbreak v1.19.2 has been released. This patch includes: Camera panning is now much smoother regardless of v-sync setting, framerate or distance from the player. This was an incredibly subtle bug to hunt down that took a tremendous amount of time to fix correctly, but should greatly help with gameplay and especially improved local co-op significantly.

Vertical splitscreen added!Jun 18, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsOutbreak v1.19.1 has been released! This update includes: Camera and player character movement is now much smoother across the game. Added the option for vertical splitscreen in addition to horizontal splitscreen. Improved camera angles for all types of local co-op. Fixed an issue where the second local co-op player could not reload their weapon on command outside of the inventory. Note: You may encounter some strange graphics glitches in Vertical Splitscreen. I'm still working on tracking these down but they tend to go away very quickly after the beginning of a match. I'll post a patch when I have them solved.Outbreak v1.19.0 Released! Local co-op, quick weapon switch and more!Jun 17, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsOutbreak v1.19.0 has been released! This update includes: Added 2-player local splitscreen co-op (Experimental). See all the details here. Added bindings for quickly cycling between Handguns, Shotguns and Rifles, Power Weapons and Melee Weapons. Set these bindings in the Options -> Controls menu. These greatly help in local co-op as you don't need to open your inventory to equip new weapons. Added the ability for the local co-op player to have their own AI teammate. This allows you to have 2 human players and 2 AI bots in games. AI teammates now randomly select a weapon when spawning. Improved performance and less stuttering on lower end machines. Upgraded underlying engine to latest version. Local co-op is coming to Outbreak!Jun 17, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsHey Survivors! Well, we certainly have a theme going here. After both Outbreak: The New Nightmare and Outbreak: Epidemic received local co-op, it's time for Outbreak to shine. That's right - 2 player local co-op is finally here for Steam (and coming later in 2020 to consoles!). Co-op Overview {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/26030162/7c6a597a18f46aef839416481d2bb6f75cf8b789.jpg Outbreak supports 2-player splitscreen co-op in both the Campaign and Onslaught Modes. You can access local co-op through the "Local Game" menu (replacing the Single Player menu). On the lower left-side, there is a tickbox to enable local co-op and then a button to select the co-op player's character. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/26030162/d54863d97825069c1dfa8deba5dfa8070c1c77d7.jpg Just as with online co-op, everyone must select their own player. If you both select the same, it will automatically bump one of you to a different character. In addition, you can also choose to have AI teammates enabled - and this is huge - each player gets their own bot. Which means in a 2-player co-op game you can technically have 4 total players (2 human and 2 bot). This really ratchets up the action and allows you to more easily tackle the horrific Biohazard difficulty. You can of course choose to disable AI teammates if you want. Another cool thing is now (in both single-player and local co-op) your AI teammate will randomly select a weapon at the start of the match. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll bring a Magnum to the fight! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/26030162/8b232c85bee66b7def789e434b5b289ad0a06334.jpg In addition, your special starting inventory items (that you randomly find during gameplay and are selected prior to the beginning of a new scenario) are applied to BOTH co-op players. So when you go in guns blazing with Magnums or Grenade Launchers, your friends will benefit from that consumable as well. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/26030162/3522a5fee6d0b9fa274c197c2ddddbebb879f59e.jpg During gameplay, each human player has their own inventory and you can see everyone's items, health, etc.. from the lobby view. To help make co-op smoother, I've also added quick bindings to cycle through Handguns, Shotguns & Rifles, Power Weapons and Melee Weapons outside of the inventory (like in Outbreak: The New Nightmare and Outbreak: Epidemic). Make sure to bind these keys prior to playing oir reset your controls to defaults to pick them up. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/26030162/641b8100cc1a15d8eec9aa38f094fac916daf27a.jpg In Onslaught Mode, both players share the same credits, so make sure to coordinate as you buy equipment and fight off the waves of the undead. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/26030162/3c341806ce6ce73a2260444781e7ea9e9186ee2c.jpg Local co-op is considered an experimental mode. You may encounter bugs or other issues. Please report them in the forums so I can fix them quickly! Steam Remote Play Together should also work fine in Outbreak (as well as Outbreak: The New Nightmare and Outbreak: Epidemic).
