Digital storefront Humble Bundle is working with publisher THQ Nordic to bring a new pack of games to PlayStation 4 owners. Titled the Humble THQ Nordic PlayStation Bundle 2, this assortment of games is boasted to be worth $269. For the next two weeks, however, people can pick up all these games for $15 (or more). As the title suggests, all these games are for the PS4.

As with every bundle Humble does, there are multiple tiers associated with a different number of games. The entry-level $1 tier nets gamers copies of Lock's Quest and Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Director's CutLock's Quest is a strategy RPG that involves building defenses on a grid-based map. Giana Sisters is a 2.5D platformer with a world that shifts based on your character's personality.

 

If you beat the average donation — which at the time of writing is $11.19 — you'll get access to This is the PoliceThe DwarvesRed Faction IIBlack Mirror (2003), and Destroy All Humans! 2. Paying for this tier will also net you the above-mentioned games. This is the Police is a strategy-adventure game that has players manage a police department in a town that's been thrown into chaos. The Dwarves is a tactical real-time RPG with a story featuring, well, dwarves.

Red Faction II, released back in 2002, is a sci-fi first-person shooter set on a futuristic Earth. Black Mirror is the first in a spooky point-and-click trilogy. Don't get it confused with the popular British TV show. The game was rebooted last year by THQ Nordic, although it's hard to say the game is worth your time. Finally, Destroy All Humans! 2 puts players in the shoes of an alien who visits Earth in the '60s to, as the title suggests, destroy all humans.

 

The final tier is set at $15. It gives you every game mentioned above and four more: Titan Quest, Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Sine Mora EX, and Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Titan Quest is an action RPG created by Age of Empires co-creator Brian Sullivan and Braveheart writer Randall Wallace. It also recently got a Nintendo Switch port, although the original release was 12 years ago. Darksiders is an action-adventure game featuring War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and it's a perfect time to pick up the game before the release of Darksiders III.

Sine Mora EX is a sidescrolling shoot 'em up with both story and arcade modes. Finally, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a turn-based JRPG based on the hit '90s comic Battle Chasers. The game was spearheaded by people who previously worked on Darksiders, including character designer Joe Madureira.

 

For $15, all these games can be yours on the PS4. Humble Monthly subscribers can get an extra $2 in Humble Wallet credit on top of all the games. The bundle will run until Nov. 13.
