For those unfamiliar with how free games work on the Epic Games Store, users should only claim them on October 21, and then they will remain a permanent part of the user’s library. In other words, there is no need to rush to complete Stubbs the zombie before next week. Users can claim the game and complete it as they wish. On October 21, the next free game will be released: Among Sleep – Improved Edition. At the moment, it’s unclear if this will be the only free game available or if more will be announced next Thursday.
Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse First released on the original Xbox in 2005. The game was re-released on multiple platforms earlier this year, with a number of modern improvements. Players can experience the game in single player mode or invite a friend over for co-op play. As a zombie, Stubbs feeds on the citizens of Punchbowl, Pennsylvania. By feeding on their brains, Stubbs can transform his opponents into other zombies, as he attempts to take revenge on those responsible for his death. Stubbs the zombieS’s absurd humor has made it a fan favorite, and those who have never played the game may want to do so while it’s free! The game normally costs $ 19.99.
