Contagion isn't your average Zombie Shooter but instead takes a more realistic and different approach to the popular genre with unique characters, environments, weapons, items, and a built in system that makes every round completely unpredictable with resources, objectives, and paths ever changing.

10/16 Mods update

Hello all!

So over the weekend we put the mods in UK and AU servers. Ch_rottenswamp still causes a crash so for now I’ll keep it off the mapcycles. To play the mods you MUST download the files for the mods. There are 3 Hunted maps(including rottenswamp) and 5 Escape maps. I’ll make sure to make announcement if I get Rottenswamp working, that might require server resets on the Hunted/Easy servers. So no more server resets planned after that!

And this Halloween, we’d like to invite folks to play Contagion and try out the mods! From Easy to Extreme! If you are new to Contagion, besure to turn Post Processing on Low and Anti-Aliasing mode to None. This is a work-around for the map change crash.

Big shout out to all the map creators and all the support for implementing the Mods! Good things are coming!

10/9 Mods update

Hey all,

Some good news, I finally got ce_hive to work on server: Cali Escape Only (EXTREME) #3 173.199.87.109

So I made a few changes and reuploads. Some of the mods cause a crash on user end, so be sure you are SUBSCRIBED. I'll link ALL of the content below. I’ll be working now to get it all distributed to NY/TX servers this week. So for testing purposes and server resets, I will be working on TX servers Wednesday and NY servers Thursday incase you see those regions resetting. I’ll try to reset non populated servers first, and then eventually jump into the populated region server to warn folks of server reset. Friday I will try see how to bypass UK/AU permissions and will try to get them working there over the weekend.

Next week, I’ll see if I can increase player max size limits to as many of the 8 man servers as possible. If you want me to tweak infection rates let me know, and I’ll see what is in my power to change in at least Normal difficulty servers.

Be sure to subscribe the all of the workshop content.
