    In Scourge Outbreak, you can play as one of four mercenaries to stop the Nogari Corporation and their alien clones. This is a linear 3rd person action co-op shooter with some tactical strategies. Command your team, find cover and slay the enemies.

    Rule of Thumb:
    High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
    Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Conclusion:
    Scourge Outbreak ran the first time I tested it. Everything looked great and I was able to crank the graphics up with my GeForce GTX 1060 in 1920x1080 resolution. In game video adjustments, loading and saving worked without any hitches.
