Includes a variant of tag where one player is selected at start of a round and they must hunt down the rest of the players. Tagged players join the hunter's side. Usually with either time limit or requirement for either team to be eliminated.


Alternate name: Infected

The first video game about Multiplayer: Infection was released on September 25, 2007.

Microsoft Game Studios and Sega has published most of these games

Time limit is usually included if the hunted are defenseless, providing them a victory condition. Either team eliminated usually means the hunted are armed but less powerful than the hunter.

This game mode does not have too well established name, but infected/infection is common because the hunter is usually a zombie, vampire, werewolf, or another that according to their respective mythos turns their targets to more of their own.
