World War Z Is Free Right Now on Epic Games Store

As is typically the case on Thursdays, the Epic Games Store has updated its rotating list of free games on the platform. If you're somehow not already aware, the digital distribution platform from Epic Games has been offering free PC games for months and months at this point. The new ones are usually announced the week before. And while both Figment and Tormentor x Punisher were announced last week, and are available now, an extra, unannounced game has come into rotation this week: World War Z.

The free week here just so happens to coincide with a relatively new update to the title that added crossplay between PC and Xbox One in PvE missions and Horde Mode Z. While not currently available, this update is expected to arrive on the PlayStation 4 at a later date, meaning that if you pick up the free PC version now, you should be able to play with anyone across platforms in the near future.

As usual, the only caveat here is that it's only free for the week, requires an Epic Games Store account, and is specifically for PC. Even so, free is free, right? Even if you don't currently have a PC capable of playing the game, it's probably worth picking up for the possibility that you will at some point alone.
