Virgin prepare for Outbreak

Codename : Outbreak demo released

Codename : Outbreak, the futuristic squad shooter from Virgin Interactive and GSC GameWorld, will now be released in the UK on Friday October 12th. In the meantime a new demo version of the game has just been released on the official website, featuring both single and multiplayer missions to sink your teeth into. Formerly known as Venom, the game is set on an Earth devestated by a near-miss from a massive comet. As if that wasn't bad enough, the meteor impacts have brought with them alien spores, resulting in a Triffids-style invasion. As half of an elite two man strike force it is up to you to take on the hideous mutants created by these spores and wipe out the alien threat before humanity is lost. The game also features full co-operative support, allowing you to team up with a friend instead of relying on the AI to control your team-mate, as well as the usual deathmatch style online modes. To find out more, head over to the Codename Outbreak website.
