Outbreak at Virgin

Futuristic first person shooter due in September

Virgin Interactive have announced that they will be publishing Codename : Outbreak, the new first person shooter from Cossacks developer GSC Game World. Outbreak is set in the now traditional post-apocalyptic world, with a little Day of the Triffids and Quatermass thrown in for good measure. A near miss with a comet has left the Earth devestated by meteor impacts, but a far greater threat comes from the alien spores which were scattered across the planet by the comet, and are now causing other organisms to mutate into "hideous and lethal creatures". Naturally it's up to you to fight back for humanity as half of a two man strike squad, with a mixture of single and multiplayer options on offer. Expect to see Codename : Outbreak in stores some time in September.
