Summer is drawing to a close, and if that makes you feel a little twinge of sadness, don’t fret. The new Humble Monthly Bundle is here to take the sting out of the transition to cooler weather and shorter days. The early unlock for October is a little different from past months in that there’s just the one game… but WHAT a game. If you’re already a subscriber, you can start playing Overwatch, the October early unlock game, right away.
This is the cheapest way to get Overwatch. Even by itself, $12 for one of the biggest games around is an enormously good deal, but add in all the other games and it’s like some sort of beautiful dream. But the deal gets even sweeter with the inclusion of Overwatch Loot Boxes. If you stay subscribed through November, you’ll get two bonus Overwatch loot boxes with that month’s bundle, and December will toss in one more, just in time for the holidays.
Getting your hands on each month’s games is a snap, too. Just visit the Humble Monthly Bundle website and sign up for $12 a month. At the beginning of each month, you gain access to the early-unlocks right away. As the month goes on, even more games become available. By the end of the month, you have so many games it’s almost an embarrassment of riches.
If you ever feel overwhelmed by all the games, or there’s a game in the bundle you’re just not into, gifting them to your friends is as easy as clicking a link in your Humble library. There are no hoops to jump through, no weird permissions to give. Just send a gift link to your friends and let them enjoy a little taste of what the Humble Monthly Bundle has to offer, too.
Maybe you’ve heard of the biggest competitive shooter around? Overwatch is the culmination of everything Blizzard does well: excellent design, balanced gameplay, incredible competition, and an ever-growing roster of playable characters. There has never been a cheaper price way to get your hands on Overwatch than with this month’s Humble Monthly Bundle, but you get more than just our 2016 Game of the Year. Way, WAY more.
Last Month’s Games
You can get Overwatch right now, for just $12. But there are more games coming through as the month goes by, which makes this an even more amazing deal. To give you an idea of the caliber of games you get each month, here are the games now available to people who already signed up. You can’t get these games anymore, but if you sign up right now, you can get a whole slew of mystery games coming up.
Little Nightmares is a tense game of hide and seek, blending the tried and true rules of that favorite childhood game with the terror of the unfamiliar. Atmospheric, grotesque, and even a little stressful, Little Nightmares keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition
Darksiders 2: Dethinitive Edition is basically a hellish afterlife version of Zelda, and that’s pretty much all you need to know. The third game in the series comes out at the end of November, so you can grab onto this one and get yourself caught up on all the dungeon crawling and loot grabbing goodness.
Battle Chef Brigade
This genre-blending puzzle platformer takes the best ingredients from platforming, puzzle-solving, and anime storytelling and blends them into a smooth batter of fun and charm. With clever characters and gorgeous art, Battle Chef Brigade is a quirky good time.
Zombie Night Terror
Old-school graphics still make for some gratuitous gore, and this zombie-apocalypse puzzle game lets you help the undead swarms finish off the last of the living. Even cooler, Zombie Night Terror has a level editor so you can create your own levels, cutscenes, and more.
An isometric adventure set in the subconscious, Figment is an adventure through the regions of the mind, blending humor with the surreal. Its music, unusual creatures, and dynamic between the main characters makes it a winner.
ETHEREAL (Humble Original)
This month’s Humble Original is Ethereal, a haunting puzzler with a colorful, simple, but captivating, aesthetic.
