THQ announced tpday that it has signed a agreement with Aspyr to distribute Stubbs the Zombie in PAL territories. This third-person action game is an original IP by Bungie Studio veterans that uses an updated HaloTM engine to deliver a stirring tale of one man's hunger for love, justice... and brains.

Under the terms of the agreement, THQ will distribute the title on Xbox in all territories outside North America and Japan and for the PC in all territories outside North America, Japan, Russia, Slovenia, Poland, Hungary and Czech Republic.

"We're excited to be able to bring this unique and innovative title to PAL territories," stated Ian Curran, senior vice president, THQ (UK) Ltd. "Working with Aspyr gives us a great opportunity to grow our global business and strengthen our position as a leading video game publisher."

"THQ's expertise in managing key brands makes them an excellent partner," said Vip Patel, vice president, Aspyr Europe. "We're confident that their team will do a great job getting Stubbs the Zombie into the hands of eagerly awaiting fans,"

Features :

  • Play as a Zombie and give those unpleasant, violent humans a piece of your eating theirs.
  • Destroy an entire city built with Bungie's Halo Engine.
  • Use Zombie Strength to smash down doors and maul a wide variety of citizens and armed defenders.
  • Spread Zombie Love by eating the brains of your enemies and adding them to your own personal zombie horde.
