As everyone knows by now Steam is having it's yearly Summer Sale and they've got quite a bit of entertainment for us as well as some very sweet deals so do not miss out!
Contagion is on sale as well as the 4-Pack at 50% Off So check it out and share with your friends!
But let's get to the real news regarding Contagion and that would be our Free DLC Bundle. After a poorly timed fiasco last year we've had to rebuild our team and learn from scratch quite a bit of work (please read our pinned thread on the details). This has delayed major releases including our Free DLC Bundle but we're tired of waiting and tired of making you guys wait.
While much of our content is linked due to the overhaul of the Source Engine and optimization as well as improved audio with Wwise we've managed to split the release into a few parts and will be delivering them asap starting today with our Map Release!
3 Gigabytes of Contagion Assets are currently being uploaded to Steam and in a few hours your copy of Contagion is going to either automatically start updating or ask that you update. We've been very busy even during the struggle that started last year and we believe modders will appreciate the ludicrous amount of content to work with and veteran players will notice significant improvements to existing environments. But today's release is focused on our MAP RELEASE with the below maps.
(We will be having all Official Servers Updated tomorrow)

We will be releasing the new weapons, characters, and the new game-mode flatline as soon as these are ready or at least not as clumsy as they feel right now. The maps we've been having a blast on today making them release ready and will be reading your input as you play them. Modders will have much more content to work with and older maps have received some major polishing. Because there was soooo much work being done, so many devs being vetted, and confusion late last year and early this year there is no way to go over all the changes unfortunately but many veterans will notice the changes immediately to all existing content.[appshowcase.intel.com]
Also wanted to share that we were invited and put on the Intel Showcase and have some other exciting news we hope we can share in the near future. That said, keep checking back on the next DLC release!
Someone asked us why we would waste our DLC during a Sale and lose the value behind marketing it. We told em we couldn't stand making you wait and that was costing us more.
Want to thank everyone for being so incredibly supportive and patient as we got our house in order. Looking forward to releasing content on a more regular basis once again.
-The Contagion Team
