What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are both 17-18 and we've worked on New Outbreak for about a year on and off and are now currently unable to properly work on the game full time due to now needing to get into proper education etc so we feel bringing it to Early Access will help either slightly or massively depending on the response but either way it will help us afford to keep working on the game either with extra spare time or put all our effort into it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want the game to be in Early Access as long as necessary to ensure the game reaches its full potential, we're not sure how much longer the game will be in Early Access. We want to finish the Sandbox and definitely Episode 1 for the Story.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to have the following features :
-Bandits in Sandbox that will roam the map, you will be able to interact with them, perhaps they join you or perhaps they want your blood.
-Story Mode, Currently set to take part in Episodes that will follow a (Male or Female) as they attempt to survive in the appocalypse.

Also including more things for the sandbox experience ranging from Clothing to weapons to even possibly more maps.

Also technical changes such as better optimisation and more options overall on how the game runs and plays.

We may add more modes and features depending on Community feedback because that is a huge part of development.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the entire sandbox mode except saving(Because it was a hit and miss system so we want to re-work the entire system to make it work better, so we disabled it for now) is working with the inclusion of a massive map compared to the demo.There is also a couple small tutorial pages that highlights key parts of how to play the game.


-Current Features
-Dog Companion
-Huge Open Map
-Vehicles
-Build your own base

-Coming Soon
-Bandits
-Story Episode 1
-More filled out map
-More Items, Weapons etc”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There is a chance the price will increase but most likely it will remain the same, it depends on how the game does.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“In every single way, we want people to express their opinions and give feedback no matter how harsh it could be, the only way to improve is to find the flaws and fix them and fill in content that should be there and also add more to it and the best way to do that is to listen to what everyone says. We want to make this more than just another Generic Zombie survival game, we feel we can make something more than that.”

About This Game

New Outbreak is a 2D top-down zombie survival game. It is currently being released on PC(Steam) and the Xbox One. It allows you to survive how you want to, build the things you want, make friends or enemies, take care of your dog and most importantly, survive. You can craft your own shelters or barricade yourself into a building. To give the game more reason and extend the sandbox experience we are working on a research system that will allow you to gain blueprints that will give you access to advanced equipment.

-Current Features
-Dog Companion
-Huge Open Map
-Vehicles
-Build your own base

-Coming Soon
-Bandits
-Story Episode 1
-More filled out map
-More Items, Weapons etc
-Level Editor

We are focusing hard on the SinglePlayer experience to make it not only unique but very fun, this is for both Story and Sandbox.

Planned Modes

Story
Story is now going to be split up into episodes that we will release over time when they are ready. It will follow your character (Male or Female) as they try to survive the apocalypse with their Dog.

Sandbox(Is in the game)
The part most people will care about, Sandbox puts you in the midst of an apocalypse, survive any way you can ranging from barricading yourself into buildings to creating your own shelter. And don't forget your faithful companion, your dog! Who needs looking after as much as anyone else so don't neglect him/her and they will protect you when you need it most.

Bandits are an optional feature and will add some variety as they roam the map trying to survive, some will want to join, some won't and some will be out for blood.

Multiplayer/Coop
Local Is Confirmed(Post Launch), Online is currently not being thought up of currently, it may in the future if we get enough support and are able to get someone more knowledgable of online on the team.

And thank you for checking out our game, we are spending a lot of time to make it great and with your support helps us to continue development!
