TR Member Perks!

Back in February Humble Bundle ran the Humble Ubisoft Bundle, which was interesting as the highest tier included a pre-order of The Division. It seems Humble Bundle is now re-running the Ubisoft Bundle with the Humble Ubisoft Bundle Encore.

This bundle is broken into four tiers, with the first tier being a $1 or higher tier and including three games. First you’ll get Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, a wild west first-person shooter most notable for its extremely unreliable narrator that seems to change the story for fun rather than based on what actually happened. Next up is Grow Home, a strange experimental 3D platformer that features a character with procedurally generated movements. You can read our review of Grow Home here. Finally, you’ll also get Rayman Origins. This 2D platformer saw the rebirth of Rayman and is also probably one of the best 2D platformers on the market available now. As usual, this tier includes a 10% coupon for Humble Monthly. It should also be noted that Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and Grow Home are the only Steam titles available in this bundle. Every other game is a Uplay code.

Splinter Cell Blacklist

Splinter Cell Blacklist

The second tier is the beat the average tier, currently at $5.24 at the time of writing. There are three more games with the promise of more games next week. First is Far Cry 3, an open-world first-person shooter that has you exploring a pair of islands and diving into the insane in an effort to save your friends. Following that is Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, the most recent entry in the Splinter Cell series. We have a very positive review up for this game as well. Finally, you’ll also get Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, a 2.5d stealth platformer that has you sneaking around China to recover a box given to the main character by Ezio. Like usual this tier includes more games next week, and if this bundle is truly a retread of the first bundle then you’ll be getting Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory added next week.

Next up is the $15 tier, which has two more games. First is Assassin’s Creed Rogue, a companion game to Assassin’s Creed Unity and a continuation of the ideas seen in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Here you’ll be switching sides to see the Templar’s story as you head a ship and take out Assassins. The other game is The Crew, an open-world racing RPG where you can drive around the entirety of the United States.

Pollinate all the islands!

Grow Home

Most bundles end there, but this bundle has one last tier. A $75 tier only has one more game, this being the recently released Tom Clancy’s The Division. This shooter/RPG mix sees you teaming up with friends to try and get control of New York City after a terrorist attack leaves it in ruins. You can read our review of The Division here. While this tier only includes a single game it also has a The Division T-shirt that you can’t get anywhere else. The Division recently released a new 1.2 update that added another incursion but it has been plagued by problems, including some new ones that this update introduced.

Last week’s Humble Deep Silver Bundle 2 is also still available, albeit with no new games added. The Humble Ubisoft Bundle Encore will be running for two weeks while the Humble Deep Silver Bundle 2 has one more week left.
