Just as choosing a TV series to binge on has become an overwhelming task, choosing your next gaming addiction is harder than it looks. Fortunately, the Humble Bundle’s Choice membership does the work for you by offering a handful of new PC games each month that you can keep forever.
Crusader Kings III — the critically acclaimed major strategy RPG — headlines the September 2022 Humble Choice Bundle, along with seven other great PC games. It’s worth $250, but you can add the mix of Action, Strategy, RPG, and FPS games to your library for free as an active Choice member. Plus, on September 27, you’ll travel through the grim world of moonscars as soon as it launches in the Humble Games Collection(opens in a new tab).
Here’s the full list of games included in the September Humble Choice bundle:
While a bundle of free games that you can keep forever is definitely the main draw of a Humble Choice membership(opens in a new tab), there are more benefits that make the $12 a month worth it. You can access the Humble Games Collection through the Humble desktop app while subscribing, which allows you to play a curated, ever-growing library of great games. You can rediscover old favourites, dig up experimental quirks and get lost in the archive of indie hits. As a member you also get an incremental discount in the Humble Store that goes up to 20% if you are a member for a year.
If there’s a game on the list for the month that you’re not really interested in, you can choose to gift your game download to a non-Humble Choice member. You can trade with friends or just gift them a game at no cost to you. Or, of course, if none of the revealed games of the month pique your interest, you can simply pause your membership for a month to skip. No biggie.
What really sets Humble Choice apart from other game subscriptions is that each month 5% of each membership is donated to charity in September – September’s charity is Covenant House for homeless youth. Last month, members donated more than $193,000 to the National Network of Abortion Funds.
Up to a dozen free games, store discounts, Humble Games Collection(opens in a new tab) access, no commitments and a charity every month for just $12? Other subscriptions could never do that.
If you’re a regular PC gamer, the great value Humble Choice membership is(opens in a new tab) is practically a no-brainer.
