Humble Bundle’s monthly subscription service is still going strong, with the new bundle being revealed on the first Friday of every month. We now get to see what was in Humble Monthly for May, along with learning the first game that will be in next month’s bundle.

Disclosure: Humble Bundle works with TechRaptor for affiliate partnership, and TechRaptor earns a small commission off purchases made from links in this article.

This month’s early unlock game is Destiny 2 (read our review here). Those who already have a subscription to Humble Monthly can download the game right now along with some other great titles.

As well as Destiny 2, there were nine others in May’s bundle, some of which were just revealed. First up is Dead Rising 4, the latest entry into Capcom’s zombie bashing franchise. The game sees the return of fan favorite and original protagonist Frank West. Once again, there’s a huge selection of wacky weaponry for players to build and use, along with the series’ trademark twisted sense of humor. Next up is NBA Playgrounds, which brings the classic arcade basketball experience to modern audiences. Practice your skills offline, play with up to three others on your PC, or take your talents online to posterize your opponents with acrobatic jams and gravity-defying dunks. Subscribers can also pick up Kerbal Space Programme this month. In Kerbal Space Program, players take charge of the space program for an alien race known as the Kerbals. You have access to a huge variety of parts and can assemble spacecrafts to test against realistic aerospace physics. It’s going to take a lot of practice, Kerbal deaths and trial and error to succeed, but nothing beats the feeling of your first successful space launch. Check out our review.

Following that, you can also grab Ruiner, one of the early unlocks from May, a brutal action shooter set in the year 2091. Players will use a set of augmented tools, devastating weapon, and enhanced reflexes to take down an evil corporation named HEAVEN. Next up is the Humble Original Knight Club,  a 2-4 player action platform-fighting game that brings traditional fighting game elements into a platformer-inspired, free-form movement playstyle. Players can battle it out with their pals online, or via local play. Crazy Machines 3 tasks players with building insane contraptions in order to solve a series of physics-based puzzles. There are 80 puzzles to play through so it’s definitely worth checking out. There’s also Jalopy, which presents a grueling procedurally generated world which players must drive across. Upgrade, maintain and care for your Laika 601 Deluxe motor vehicle. Keep close attention to everything from the state of your tires, the condition of your engine and even the space in your trunk- and install unique upgrades to deal with the changing world.

If you’re after something a little more quirky, look no further than Moon Hunters. The game is a 1 to 4 player co-operative action personality test RPG in a rich, ancient world that’s different every time you play. Over the course of the game, you’ll build your very own mythology, and determine how the game will remember your character when it’s gone. While we haven’t done a review of it, we have streamed it in the past and those playing it enjoyed it. Finally, subscribers can download RWR – Running With Rifles this month, which is a military based arcade strategy game.

In addition, three new Star Wars games have been added to the collection in celebration of May the 4th. Star Wars X-Wing vs TIE Fighter – Balance of Power Campaigns, Star Wars Rebellion, and Star Wars X-Wing Alliance can all be accessed DRM-free for Humble Monthly subscribers. Of course, subscribers also get access to the Humble Trove, a collection of games ranging from Humble Originals to DRM-free games like Limbo and Trine. Subscribers also get a 10% discount on the store and access to exclusive offers. As a limited time offer, Humble Bundle is also offering new subscribers who go in for a year $25 in Humble Store credit, in addition to the free month you already get by doing an annual subscription.

It’s worth noting that customers in China and South Korea will receive Prototype 2 instead of Destiny 2 as the early unlock game.
