Sony PlayStation 2 'Resident Evil Outbreak' Series Online Multiplayer Servers Revived 10 Years Later

Resident-Evil-Outbreak-Servers-Back-OnlineAlthough the Sony PlayStation 2 never really boasted that many online experiences, what was on offer was an early example of what we've all grown so accustomed to today. The Resident Evil: Outbreak games brought along some fantastic multiplayer survival carnage - something you can enjoy once more through all new unofficial servers.

The recently launched Outbreak Server is now allowing anyone who happens to have access to the Japanese versions of the games to get their PlayStation 2 back online. According to the server's frequently asked questions, all you need to do is simply change the DNS records within the game's network settings menu and login with your Outbreak Server details.

If the thought of enjoying one of Capcom's early online titles again (or even for the first time) sounds tempting, then make sure you have either a PlayStation 2 capable of playing Japanese releases with a PS2 Network Adapter (if your console is the original fat model), or a suitable emulator. The Japanese versions of the games can be easily found on eBay too.
