Contagion takes place in a fictional world where the original Roanoke Colony thrived up until now. A contagion of unknown origins has infected the locals turning them into a mindless horde of flesh eating zombies. It is up to the remaining survivors to escape, extract, or hunt one another if they are to survive the horrors they now face. Contagion isn't your average Zombie Shooter but instead takes a more realistic and different approach to the popular genre with unique characters, environments, weapons, items, and a built in system that makes every round completely unpredictable with resources, objectives, and paths ever changing.
Play alone, via lan, or online with family, friends, or other members of the community. You start out as a survivor of an unknown contagion that has turned your world upside down forcing you to scavenge for limited resources where each time you play you must seek weapons, ammo, items at a new location, where the undead may or may not be where they were before in fewer or greater numbers, and even the paths you once took may now be blocked forcing you to find another way to complete your goal. A steady hand, managing what little ammo you've found, and using your head are required to complete your goals or you'll find yourself part of the flesh eating horde yourself. Every time you play you'll find things have changed sometimes quite drastically making each play-through new for both new players and veterans alike.
