Codename: Outbreak is a singleplayer FPS modification for Half-Life 2 utilizing the famous Source Engine Technology. It is science fiction mixed with a little horror.
Outbreak is about David Lane, a USA marine who embarked on a mission to an underground laboratory for inspection when an unknown genetic experiment went wrong. Codename: Outbreak is a singleplayer modification with science fiction elements.
Codename: Outbreak is a horror sci-fi singleplayer modification based off the famous Source Engine. The mod aims to be original - trying not to be related to Black Mesa, City 17, or Nova Prospekt. The mod will provide a whole new storyline that's based in the Half-Life 2 universe. With whole new levels with puzzles that will test your mind, and battles that will pump up your adrenaline.
The Codename: Outbreak make use of Counter-Strike: Source materials and models. CSS provides a large array of them, and they all served a purpose. Outbreak requires you to have a legal version of Counter-Strike: Source and a Source SDK Base to play the mod.
The mod announced itself on Valve Developer Community on December 23, 2007. Ideas and concepts were pieced together from previous projects and works from the past. The project is loosely based on my (Prototstar) previous works; Project: Halo, Sabomis, Eon Tech, Codename: Svencoop, and Catalyst. The development of the mod started early, back in November/October of 2007, where all the planning took place. Many papers were used and drawings were digitally drawn & painted by me.
