Next week’s Epic Games Store freebies have been announced.
Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse and Paladins Epic Pack will be free to download from October 14-21.
They will replace PC Building Simulator, which normally costs £14.99, but is currently free to download until October 14.
Epic claimed in January that the Epic Games Store had attracted over 160 million PC users since launching in December 2018.
The company has been giving away free titles on a weekly basis since the marketplace launched, including 103 games in 2020, collectively worth $2,407 based on US prices. Epic said users claimed over 749 million free titles last year.
Epic Games spent nearly $12 million securing titles for its regular free game giveaways during a nine-month period, according to a document released as part of the legal battle between Epic and Apple.
The Epic Games Store is launching a new achievement system next week.
Titled Epic Achievements, it will initially support a handful of titles but is expected to be rolled out to all developers “in the coming months”.
At launch, players will be able to collect XP by earning Epic Achievements in games including Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Zombie Army 4 and Alan Wake Remastered.
