The Epic game store offers new free games every week, and every time a new free game is released, next week’s offers are revealed. Until Thursday, October 14 at 10:00 a.m.CT, Epic Games Store users can claim PC construction simulator for their collection, and then when that is replaced on October 14, users will be able to claim two more goodies, including a game perfect for the Halloween season.
Starting October 14, Epic Games Store users can claim Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse for their digital library. Stubbs the zombie is joined by Paladins: Epic Pack. While Paladins itself is technically already a free game, the Epic Pack gives players instant access to champions Androxus, Raum, Tyra and Ying, as well as four special skins. Paladins: Epic Pack is not available on the Epic Games Store at the time of this writing, so it’s unclear how much it will cost otherwise.
Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse is a cult classic game first released on the original Xbox in October 2005. The game was remastered earlier this year, bringing the fan favorite game to modern platforms. The Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse remaster includes new features, like improved graphics.
While Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse isn’t a scary game, its premise still makes it a solid choice for the Halloween season. For those who may not know Stubbs the zombie, the game puts players in the role of titular Stubbs the Zombie as he eats brains out. Humans unlucky enough to be attacked by Stubbs will also potentially transform into zombies, allowing players to create their own undead hordes.
Stubbs the zombieClever use of zombie tropes opens up some interesting and unique play opportunities that are not commonly found in many other titles. Some aspects of the game have been criticized as outdated in the remastered version, but it’s still worth checking out for nostalgic fans or those who want to play a game of zombies this Halloween season.
Paladins: Epic Pack and Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse Both will be available on the Epic Games Store from October 14-21 at 10:00 a.m.CT, at which time they will be replaced with new games. It’s possible that the free games from the Epic Games Store will stick to a Halloween theme, but fans will just have to wait and see to find out for sure.
