Contagion VR: Outbreak is a first-person shooter built from the ground up exclusively for VR. Fully immerse yourself in a world initially familiar to you, and witness it's transformation into something much darker as it rapidly changes right before your eyes.

Assume the role of one of our many characters and experience their stories first hand that would shape them in the mold of who they would eventually become. The end of the world as we know it is filled with horrors the likes of which were never fathomed, but in all the darkness lies a beacon of light, tales of heroism and sacrifices made so others could carry on. Explore highly detailed environments, search for scarce resources and see if you've got what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse!

We've painstakingly developed every element from the ground up for HTC Vive and Oculus, Contagion VR: Outbreak drops you in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Fight alone in our single player story driven mode and experience each characters past, or team up and fight alongside your friends in one of our co-op based modes! Have a competitive drive? Do battle against other players in one of our PVP modes and see if you've got what it takes to be crowned king of the VR wasteland!

  • VR driven game-play mechanics: Perform physical actions true to life that immerse players deep inside the world of Contagion.
  • Full single player campaign: Each character has their own history, learn the events each experienced that shaped their personalities and defines who they are today.
  • A massive arsenal of weapons: Firearms, melee weapons, explosives, and much much more!
  • Multiple co-op modes: Fight alongside your friends in one of our multi-player focused modes, or climb the leader-boards in any of our shooting range challenges!
  • Challenge other survivors: Have a competitive itch? Hop into one of our PVP multi-player modes and see if you're good enough to be king of the VR wasteland!
  • Customize your personal space: Play the game to unlock loot drops and customize your home base to your liking before heading out to battle the infected.


For now, DOWNLOAD THE DEMO and let us know what you think so far!

This week I’ve been working on mission 2 (now in playtesters hands). I’ve worked with Victor on fleshing out some of the gameplay design as well as implementing some more optimized versions of some of the assets. Turns out several of our assets needed a reduction in the number of material slots, so those are now in with more on the way to hopefully result in a smoother experience for everyone. I also managed to wrap up all the pre-production work on the 3rd mission level and am currently doing a bit of R&D for mission 4 as I start planning that out. As always here’s a screenshot of day 2 in mission 2 (work in progress) showing a sandstorm.

This week has been about polishing up and adding new gameplay elements to Day One of Vacancy. Will be out to testers shortly. Also ran into a random engine bug that had no real information attached to it and it took some digging to fix, so quite a bit of time was wasted on that.

Been a while since I’ve done an update here! The last two weeks I have been working on cleaning up the materials on a lot of the older character assets we have been using, with the goal of bringing down the draw calls on stuff that might be happening en-masse on screen (ie the zombies). We’ve learned a lot about the Unreal 4 workflow during the development of Contagion VR, particularly with when it comes to performance. So many of the original models/materials/etc were set up pretty poorly in that regard, so this cleanup effort will likely mean more higher/ more stable FPS across the board.

I’ve also been working on creating unique destructible meshes for all our melee weapons. In the past, only a couple of the weapons had bespoke broken versions to use, and everything else was, regrettably, using the baseball bat. That will no longer be the case! Check out the preview video here:

This week I have been focusing on the audio for the riot boss, and Vacancy level. With all the new interactable objects introduced in this upcoming campaign, there is certainly no shortage of audio work needing to be done! As well as the new sfx work being undertaken, we have also been working with the WWISE team to fix some reliability issues we have discovered in the API.. but as we caught it before this new content goes live, we can get it resolved properly with no hacky workarounds.

This week we have been going pedal to the metal on getting the second part of the Vacancy campaign ready for testers. From boss fights, to runners, to wave defense segments, to rescuing bands of survivors, there is a load of new content included that needs to be coded and dialled in to make this experience all it can be, and an absolute ton of animation work to bring it all to life. That being said, I believe this is a real change from the existing campaign and should be exciting to experience!
