“This is a very solid shooter that should be a part of your library.”

“The weapon mechanics in Containment Initiative are realistic and only add to the intensity — trying to get a magazine into your pistol while your sniper friend is yelling at you and five zombies are lumbering your way is a rush.”

“This game has some longevity, as there are many options to choose and perks and upgrades you can earn as you play more and more. You could easily fill up a whole day playing this with a friend.”

About This Game

Play together:
Watch your friend's back as either the VR player or the PC player. Steam Remote Play Together support means that you can have a friend join online too!

Realistic Reloading:
Each weapon handles and reloads just like it's real world counterpart. Mastering reloading is essential to surviving the horde!

Robust progression system for both players which includes: Unlockable guns, attachments, player upgrades, and more.

Mission Types:
Work together to collect supply crates, defend objectives, or provide the VR player with sniper support as they try to survive for as long as possible.

Find random drops that include exclusive weapon skins, a new melee weapon, and ammo upgrades

Headshots trigger a slow motion effect so you can behold the carnage!

Online Leaderboards:
Once you've unlocked the best guns and gear, try to climb to the top of the online leaderboards.

Note about online multiplayer: While the game does include a component where two VR players can play online together, this feature is still in development and is not fully fleshed out. The game is best enjoyed in asymmetric mode with one player in VR and another on the PC. It also supports Steam Remote Play Together in order to have a PC player without VR join you online as well.
