Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel Without a Pulse has a new patch which lets you remove the game’s green sheen.
Stubbs the Zombie, which we reviewed here, sports a visual filter that’s as green as Stubbs’ skin. It’s never bothered us all that much but having the option to turn it off will be interesting and that’s just what the game’s latest patch does.
As announced by Aspyr Media, who ported the brain-munching action game to modern consoles, you can now play with the various game filters, removing the game’s green sheen entirely entirely, letting you view the game as is. If the green look has been bothering you, then you’ll be able to do away with it.
We’ve dived back into Stubbs the Zombie and things do look brighter with the filter off; blood stands out more, and the game as a whole looks less overcast. But it’s not exactly in line with the vision of Wideload Games, the team that developed Stubbs back in 2005.
So is this a welcome improvement or a case of a company messing with the original developers’ artistic vision? You can judge for yourself on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One right now; the patch will be arriving on Switch shortly.
