At first glance, you may look at Contagion and dismiss it as another zombie game. We’ve had so many of them lately, it’s getting difficult sorting the good from the let’s-cash-in-on-a-popular-trend games. Contagion may have zombies, but it also looks amazing. It’s a multiplayer-centric first person shooter with co-op and PvP modes and randomly generated maps, guaranteeing each playthrough is different from the last. It’s the spiritual successor to the popular Half-Life 2 mod, Zombie Panic: Source, created by the guy — and his new start-up, Monochrome — who made the mod.
With a fantastic attention to detail, a slew of innovative features and a fleshed out multiplayer, Contagion is definitely on my radar. See it in action after the break, and decide if it deserves a spot on yours, too.
Contagion is set to release on October 25th on PC. If co-op zombie bashing sounds like a swell way to spend an evening, you can support the game on Kickstarter or keep up-to-date with the latest goings on via its website.
