With the upcoming Humble Choice subscription replacing Humble Monthly, many are wondering if the change is worthwhile. Thanks to some possible leaks (take them with a grain of salt), we get to see the first round of titles to launch with this new service.
Reddit user /u/freedomtacos uploaded an image purportedly leaking the 10 games players will be able to pick and choose from - depending on your subscription choice - for Humble Choice. The list is:
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider (our review)
- Blasphemous (our review)
- Void Bastards (our review)
- Phantom Doctrine (our review)
- Dead in Vinland
- Horizon Chase Turbo
- Dark Future: Blood Red States
- Desert Child
- Aegis Defenders (our review)
- X-Morph: Defense (our review)
This comes ahead of the December 6th, 2019 release date of Humble Choice. The number of games you own from this list is dependent on which model of the subscription you pick. For example, current Humble Monthly subscribers are grandfathered into the Classic subscription plan, which grants players all 10 games for $12 a month. In contrast, the Basic subscription plan, which is $14 a month, gives you a choice of three.
Ultimately, you'll be getting a decent deal on most of these games for even the most basic plan. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is normally $60 when not on sale. Blasphemous and Void Bastards are two relatively new games that haven't seen much of a dip in price yet, so those add to the value of this package.
While this is just a leak, we'll find out on December 6th, 2019 if it holds true. To read more about Humble Choice, check out our article outlining the new service.
It's not a terrible crop of games. If you already subscribe to the Basic plan, it's an obvious choice to go with Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Void Bastards in my personal opinion. To me, it seems like your pretty typical Humble Monthly offerings, with several bigger games headlining and the rest being decent indies.
