PC users are spoiled for choice in the current Humble Bundle sale, with thousands of titles marked down in price. Here’s a guide to the latest games reduced in the winter season sales, featuring wild discounts aplenty and numerous top-notch titles going for less than £2!
It’s not just indie darlings that have been levelled price-wise – a vast array of games from the likes of Capcom, THQ Nordic and Square Enix have also been reduced. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the best games in the Humble Bundle sale, split up by genre.
First up, on the RPG/action front we have dino-dragon hunting sim Monster Hunter World, down to £32.99 – a significant improvement on its Steam £49.99 asking price. Fans of more narrative-driven titles can also enjoy 60 per cent off the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game of the Year edition, which is going for £13.99.
In addition, beautiful action-RPG featuring character designs from a legendary Studio Ghibli animator Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is half-price – currently costing £24.99. If you fancy something a little more “realistic”, medieval open-world RPG Kingdom Come Deliverance: Deluxe edition’s price has been cut in half to £21.99.
Looking toward the retro RPG side, you can try out legendary JRPG Chrono Trigger for only £5.99, one of the titles that inspired PlayStation One classic Final Fantasy VIII, which is also in the sale for just under a fiver. In fact, nearly all Final Fantasy titles have been slashed for the season, so worth a look if you fancy a Square RPG old, new or obscure.
