Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles Chapters 3 and 4 Now Available + v1.3 Patch!


Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles Chapters 3 and 4 are now available! If you own the Complete Edition or the Season Pass, you will now have access to them in-game. They are also available for purchase separately as well! If you don't see them, restart Steam.

As a solo indie developer, I greatly appreciate all of the support I've received from the community as I've developed the Outbreak series over the last few years. I truly miss the classic survival horror genre and I hope everyone has enjoyed going on this journey to take a step back in time with me. This release completes Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles content-wise, but I'll be on the lookout for reported issues and address them where possible.

This release also includes the v1.3 patch which contains:
  • Support for Chapter 3 and 4 content.
  • Minor improvements to enemy pathfinding.
  • Minor improvements to environmental collisions to improve playability.
  • Buffed damage for the Shotgun slightly.
Thanks again for a great few years of survival horror! I'm not quite sure where the future of the series will be - but I have a hunch we might see this world again someday! Best of luck surviving!

About This Game


As the city burns and the countryside is engulfed by the epidemic, the living are increasingly alone and forced to live with this new reality. Monstrous beasts and disfigured remnants roam freely with their numbers increasing rapidly, slaughtering everything in their path. In the opening chapter, Lydia finds herself separated from her fellow survivors and all alone. After fleeing into a large manor estate to escape the relentless horde, her only goal now is survival. She must explore the manor, locate supplies and find a way to wake from this nightmare. But somehow... she knows her fate is already sealed.

Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles is an episodic unforgiving survival horror experience that takes place within the Outbreak universe. Death lurks behind each door as you fight to survive with the limited supplies at your disposal. Search rooms thoroughly and make the right choice when to fight - or flee - from the monstrosities. Featuring classic hardcore survival horror gameplay in a directed single-player experience, you'll need to stay on your toes to stay alive. You have a limited inventory and you'll need to leverage supply caches to store your equipment for use later. Saving your game is also highly restrictive and you'll need to locate the means to record your progress as you explore. Lydia's adventure is just the beginning... can you survive the chronicles and determine the fate of the other survivors?
