Humble Monthly is officially dead – here’s how the first Humble Choice bundle works

Shadow of the Tomb Raider headlines the first bundle

December 6, 2019 The Humble Choice subscription is here.

Humble announced a couple of months ago that its Humble Monthly subscription would soon be retired in favour of a new iteration called Humble Choice. The details of the updated subscription were a bit confusing in that announcement, but the basic idea is that you’ll be paying more in exchange for more options over which games you’ll get each month. The first Humble Choice bundle has gone live, so now we know exactly what to expect.

Each month, Humble will give you a selection of ten or more games to choose from, and you’ll keep the games you select forever. At the basic subscription tier, you’ll pay $14.99 per month or $134.99 per year for your choice of three games each round. At the premium tier, you’ll pay $19.99 per month or $179.99 per year for your selection of nine monthly games.

If you were already a Humble Monthly subscriber before the rollover, you’ll get to choose ten games each month at your existing subscription price – but if you cancel, you’ll have to choose from one of the new subscription tiers instead.

This month offers exactly ten games to choose from: Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Blasphemous, Ancestors Legacy, Phantom Doctrine, Dead In Vinland, Horizon Chase Turbo, Dark Future: Blood Red States, Desert Child, Aegis Defenders, and X-Morph Defense.

You can head to the official site if you’d like to sign up. The subscriptions all still include access to a Humble Store discount, the rotating selection of games in the Humble Trove, and a number of Humble-published originals and betas. If you just want those bonuses, a Humble Basic subscription is available for $4.99 per month or $44.99 per year.
