The game is an episodic 1-4 player co-op survival horror game set in 1988. Players take on the role of an exterminator tasked with eliminating twisted versions of classic characters and urban legends.
Infestation 88, undergoes a name change to Infestation: Origins after the developers learn about the Nazi connotations associated with the number 88.

Supporting 1-4 players, Infestation: Origins offers both private and public lobbies, along with proximity-based and standard voice chat.
Players unlock experience, skins, perks, and other items as they progress. Nvidia DLSS support ensures stunning visuals without sacrificing frame rate.
