Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles Coming November 5, 2020 | Trailer

Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles

Influenced by the classic Resident Evil series, Dead Drop Studios’ latest, Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles will be heading to Nintendo Switch on November 5, 2020. The game is a unique single-player experience featuring bone-crushing difficulty, limited saves via consumable floppy disks, and panic-inducing encounters not for the faint of heart.

Featuring fixed camera angles, Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles is the most atmospheric title in the Outbreak series – taking players from a well-lit, stately manor (creepy in its own right!) to a nightmarish environment far below ground.

The Switch version of Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles carries over improvements and bug fixes made to the original Steam release, including: 

  • Massive rebalancing – making “Normal” difficulty slightly more manageable with buffed supplies, improved damage, and more; “Hard” and beyond are untouched and remain incredibly difficult.
  • Superior enemy attack detection – giving the player more opportunities to dodge.
  • Significant performance and memory improvements.
  • Dramatic reduction in load times.
  • Numerous fixes including geometry tweaking, enemy placement, and more.
  • Fixed camera angles harken back to the early days of survival horror games.
  • Dedicated Story Mode follows Lydia as she becomes separated from her group.
  • Limited inventory space, beautiful environments, and horrifying monsters!
  • Fight through countless rooms in an action-packed Battle Mode – inspired by Resident Evil: Code Veronica.
  • Search rooms, read logs, find keys, and solve puzzles to survive.
  • Engage threats directly or run away to safety.
  • Save games using (in-game) floppy disks!
  • Choose from several firearms and melee weapons.
  • Multiple difficulty settings – Easy, Normal, Biohazard, and a “one-hit-kill” Nightmare setting for the truly insane.
  • No Internet connection required.
  • Supports Switch Pro Controller, Joy-Cons in tabletop mode, and HD Rumble.

Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles is available for pre-order now and will be released on the Nintendo Switch a week from today, Thursday, November 5, for $11.04 (15% off). On November 12, the game will return to its original MSRP of $12.99.
