The update now features revamped 1st and 3rd person views that feature free look, strafing, precision aiming, and more – a welcome addition for those used to aiming with the right analog stick. Performance optimizations were conducted across the board—drastically improving loading times on current-gen consoles (Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4) and also delivering silky-smooth frame rates on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. Finally, visual and sound effects are now more punchy and realistic—fully delivering the operatic carnage the Outbreak series is known for.

  • Every single improvement was driven by community feedback.
  • First- and third-person views now feature free look, strafing, and precision aiming.
  • First-person mode now also allows players to better see both weapon and player models during gameplay.
  • Frame rates, load times, and visual fidelity improved across all supported platforms.
  • Gameplay balancing (including combat, puzzles, UI, controls and more) adjusted based on community suggestions.
  • VFX updated to deliver more realistic gore and explosions.
  • Significant improvements to co-op gameplay—including balancing, bug fixes and much, much more!

Fans of the series can now pre-order a special physical edition containing the first five Outbreak titles from Limited Run Games! The bundle contains the PS4 versions of Outbreak: EpidemicOutbreak: Lost Hope, Outbreak: The Nightmare ChroniclesOutbreak: The New Nightmare, and the original Outbreak. (All games also run on PS5.)

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
