Have you heard? There's a sale on right now over at the Humble Store, and it's a special one. Humble is giving you the chance to build your own 2K bundle from a selection of twenty-eight of the Californian publisher's titles. A portion of the proceeds will also go to housing support charity Covenant House.
Here's how it works. You can stack your bundle with up to five games. Adding one or two to the bundle won't get you any sort of discount. Once you've got three games, you'll slash 80% off the combined retail prices of the games in your bundle. Four games get you 83% off, and five get you 85% off. Bear in mind that this applies to the full retail price of those games and not the special sale price. You can, of course, buy any of the 2K games on offer here separately - there are still some pretty great deals to be had. Here are some of our picks for the Humble Store's 2K bundle promo.
ShootersDo you love shooting? Do you love looting? Of course you do. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (75% off) packs in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2 - as well as both of those games' DLC - for the ultimate lootin' shootin' adventure. If you haven't already played it, BioShock: The Collection (75% off) offers three excellent narrative-heavy shooters for peanuts. The Darkness II (75% off) is well worth checking out and is an underrated gem. There's also Spec Ops: The Line (75% off) which we don't want to say too much about but is a must-play for anyone interested in video game storytelling.
Strategy gamesMaybe you're more of a thinking gamer. If so, there's plenty in the Humble Store's 2K collection to cater for you. Sid Meier's Civilization IV: The Complete Edition (75% off) remains a classic of the 4X genre. XCOM: Enemy Unknown (75% off) rebooted the classic alien-stomping strategy franchise with considerable success, and its expansion Enemy Within (75% off) raised the stakes even further. Finally, there's Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth (75% off), which is well worth a look if you're a fan of Alpha Centauri or you just love space.
Crime sandboxesWe say "sandboxes", but this part of the promo is all about the Mafia series. All three games in the much-loved crime sandbox series are present and correct here. The first Mafia (75% off) tells the tale of Tommy Angelo, a taxi driver forced into a life of crime by unfortunate circumstances. Mafia II (75% off) revolves around poor former soldier Vito Scaletta, while Mafia III (also 75% off) recounts the story of New Bordeaux resident Lincoln Clay. We really liked the third game, so we'd recommend that one if nothing else.
There's plenty here we haven't even touched on, so make sure you head on over to the Humble Store to take a look. Steam keys are limited for these games, so it's possible Humble could run out. You'll still be able to grab the games direct from Humble, so don't let that stop you. While you're there, take a look at the Humble Streaming Software Bundle to take your first steps towards being a streamer. You should also check out Humble Monthly, which is offering two excellent early unlock games - Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and Moonlighter - if you subscribe now. More games will become available on July 5th, so make sure you're signed up before then to grab them all. Subscriptions cost just $12 a month, so you'll already have your money's worth just from the two early unlocks.
