.hack//Outbreak (.hack//侵食汚染 Vol.3, Hepburn: .hack//Shinshoku Osen, lit. "Erosion Pollution") is the third entry in the set of games released on the PlayStation 2. The games are set in the "first season" of the .hack series, taking place after SIGN and ZERO. The collection of games are sometimes referred to as a Tetralogy by official sources, a Quadrilogy or by the abbreviation "IMOQ" by fans, taking the first letter in each consecutive game's western title in order (Infection, Mutation, Outbreak, Quarantine). Each game comes with a bonus DVD of the anime .hack//Liminality, which shows events occurring simultaneously offline. The games take part within the fictitious MMO of 「The World」.

Synopsis

ゆっくりと、しかし確実に死に向かうネット世界…… これが「The World」の意思なのか。

異変から端を発するウイルスの侵食は、ついに憩いの街「ルートタウン」にまでも汚染の色を広げてゆく。楽しく遊べるバーチャル世界のはずであった「The World」の崩壊を目の前に、プレイヤーたち1人1人は、自らの無力さに直面する。しかし、いやだからこそ、打開しなければならない共通の目的を目の前に、プレイヤーたちは「力」を合わせることを誓い合う。[1]
