Resident Evil Outbreak, known as Biohazard Outbreak in Japan, is a survival-horror game released exclusively for the PlayStation 2 between 2003 and 2004. Capcom released the sequel titled Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 in 2005.
It was the first Resident Evil game with multiplayer capability, using the PlayStation 2's online network (Though, the servers have since shut down). Up to four players could participate simultaneously in one scenario; alternately, in single-player mode, the player is accompanied by two AI-controlled characters. Outbreak introduces the "virus gauge," which limits the number of time players may spend on a scenario. The virus gauge rises at different rates for different characters and increases rapidly if the character is attacked or crawling on the ground. The game lost all online play capabilities for the USA servers in 2007. The Japan servers stayed up but finally went down in July 2011.
We don't have a dedicated Resident Evil Outbreak forum yet which is why I posted this poll in the Lounge.
