June's Humble Monthly Unveils Eight Games, Three Early Unlocks for July

Published: June 4, 2018 7:41 PM /



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 June, along with learning the first three games that will be in July's bundle.

If you're a lucky subscriber to Humble Monthly then you already have access to Hearts of Iron IV, Blackwake, and Portal Knights, which are sneak peaks of July's bundle. If you're a month-by-month subscriber, all you have to do is pay the $12 early to unlock these titles. Not too shabby, right?

Aside from the early access games, subscribers also have the opportunity to experience eight other diverse titles, that were unlocked from last month's humble bundle. The first featured game is Styx: Shards of Darkness. This stealth-like escapade features Styx, a selfish and cunning goblin, wandering the open environments with the need to kill. Rendered with Unreal Engine 4, assassinating foes is visually stunning. Make sure to check out our review for a better idea of what you're up against. Next up is the cutesy open-world platformer, Yooka-Laylee. Embedded with inaudible conversations, quirky characters, and an all-around colorful adventure, Yooka-Laylee offers players the chance to choose their own abilities and modify their play style accordingly.

Third in the bundle is Destiny 2, which was a popular early unlock from May. Following its predecessor DestinyDestiny 2 is an online multiplayer first-person shooter experience allowing players to experience mysterious worlds and unveil a collection of super awesome weapons and combat abilities. Though Destiny 2 does incorporate RPG elements into the gameplay, a good chunk of the game relies on player versus environment (PvE) and player versus player (PvP) game styles. Our review of Destiny 2 can be found here. Fourth in June's bundle is Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!. A fast-paced restaurant simulator at best, the player's goal is to become the finest chef of all time.

Up next, players get to experience one of the most successful novels of all time in a three-part interactive video game series - Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth. Taking place in 12th century, England, players take control of Jack, Aliena, and Philip where war is underway and poverty is the norm.

Acceleration of SUGURI 2 is seventh on the list of unlockable games, a direct sequel to Sora. This lightning-fast shoot'em'up game presents challenges of all shapes and sizes. Whether players choose to go up against the AI in Story Mode or go up against other players, this game ought to keep you on your toes. The last game of June's bundle is Subserial Network, which happens to be one of the Humble Originals. These exclusive games are specifically developed for Humble Monthly subscribers, allowing developers to explore and run with their innovative ideas. Subserial Network experiments with the idea of synthetic humans rebelling against their directive. What could possibly go wrong there?

Along with those eight diverse titles, three new games have been added to the Humble Trove. In case you aren't familiar with what that entails, members are also granted access to a catalog of an abundance of DRM-free games and other Humble Originals. The Penumbra Collection, Satellite Reign, and Deadlight are the most recent additions to the Humble Trove, so make sure to check those out, too, while you're at it!
