If you’re not on the battle royale (or zombies) train, last month’s early Humble Monthly unlock might’ve felt a bit lightweight. H1Z1 is cool and all, but for the bundle to hinge on a single Early Access title as a headliner was disappointing, given the presence of big Bethesda games, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and more in earlier bundles.
December’s Humble Monthly package is already pretty lucrative up front, with the cinematic Quantum Break, the story-based realistic survival of The Long Dark, and the new Dawn of War game released earlier this year headlining the early unlocks. For $12, you get all three of those games right now, with a whole bunch more to unlock when the bundle ends on January 5.
That November bundle ended up being alright too, with the Smash Bros.-like Rivals of Aether and anime fighter BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend joining H1Z1 at the top of the list. It also ended up including The Sexy Brutale, Nex Machina, Strafe, Passpartout, and a “sneak peak” of the upcoming brawler Way of the Passive Fist – along with a couple Humble Originals. All in all, a pretty impressive selection of indie delights.
As always, subscribing to Humble Monthly nets you access to Humble Trove games (like the bizarre Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy) and 10% off at the Humble Store. And while you’re there, don’t forget to grab that free copy of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.
