Outbreak: Contagious Memories is an action survival horror developed and published by ‘Drop Dead studio‘. Outbreak: Contagious Memories is said to be coming out the 6th of April 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC. This game is trying to get back to the world of ’90s survival horror. X35 Earthwalker has lots to write about. Let’s take a look.
So basically you control Lydia who is desperately trying to escape from a city that’s been overrun by the undead. It’s all about survival out here. Resident evil fans might want to take a look over here. Outbreak: Contagious Memories is trying to bring in that 90s survival horror. That means, weird camera angles, things jumping in from off screen, cheap jumps scares, limited ammo, so on and so on. Now off course we are being mean but let’s give Outbreak: Contagious Memories a chance.
So you should already know what to expect from this game. Outbreak: Contagious Memories has options for camera angles. There’s first person view, retro fixed camera and an over the shoulder view. You can change the camera at anytime. You will hear about other survivors and their plans for survival. You will hear new reports about what the nations are doing to combat this undead plague. Outbreak: Contagious Memories is among to get players feeling like they are in the game and feeling the weight of the situation. Get immersed as they say.
Listen to this, “Mo-cap animations, cheesy voiceovers and enhanced visuals await as you solve puzzles and fight for your life.” this does sound quite 90s and older style. Outbreak: Contagious Memories is said to have brutally gory combat. The resources are said to be extremely limited. Outbreak: Contagious Memories is also going for crushing difficulty. Now how are they going to do this? By granting high damage to enemies and keep resources extremely limited? Will it be in the layout of the areas? X35 Earthwalker easily can make a game like Outbreak: Contagious Memories very very difficult without it being lame and cheap. Let’s see if these guys can get it right.
We checked out some Outbreak: Contagious Memories gameplay and it’s what we expected for the most part. The style, the camera but weak on the visual side of things. Also Outbreak: Contagious Memories is quite a dark game. Some parts will literally require a source of light like a flashlight or you don’t know what’s in there. Expect reflections, so watch those mirrors as it could save your life. Everything is trying to kill you basically and expect blood and gore. We want to see that blood and gore, so don’t get cheap on us. We hope for a variety of threats and danger. We want the standard undead enemy but also want more that require serious thinking on the part of the players. Maybe there’s some routes you just don’t want to go because of a certain enemy. We will have to see.
Overall Outbreak: Contagious Memories looks like a god game right now. It’s another survival horror game with emphasis on extreme difficulty and being a part of the survival. The developers Drop Dead studios have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an ear open for this game to see how difficult and gory it is. Now Outbreak: Contagious Memories may have limited resources but what’s never limited is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
