Want to spend the holidays battling extra-terrestrials? Then snap up the $16 Holiday Encore Humble Bundle.
Sure, there are 21 PC games included in the Holiday Encore Humble Bundle, but what stands out for us is that, with the exception of The Bureau, it includes the entire XCOM series. If you’ve played Midnight Suns, you may know that Firaxis, that game’s developers, rebooted the franchise. But this bundle doesn’t just give you the reboot and its sequel, it includes the original XCOM, its watery sequel and more.
But if you’re not overwhelmed with nostalgia, there’s plenty else on offer as well. There’s the BioShock Collection, Borderlands 3, Civilization VI and many, many more. And if you pay a minimum of $16, they’re yours to keep. The one downside is that these aren’t DRM free, you’ll be getting Steam keys. But it’s still one heck of a bargain.
Even better, a portion of your money, which you can adjust, goes towards charity. The charity in question is Covenant House, which “.. provides housing and supportive services to youth facing homelessness.” You can find out more from their official website but it certainly sounds like a worthy cause.
So what’s on offer? There are 16 items, mostly Windows-based, including 21 games:
- Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe (featuring 4 DLC packs)
- XCOM Super Collection (XCOM: Enemy Unknown, XCOM 2, XCOM: Chimera Squad and all DLC)
- Mafia: Definitive Edition
- Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
- Railroad Tycoon 3
- Railroad Tycoon II Platinum
- Sid Meier’s Railroads!
- Duke Nukem Forever Collection
- WWE 2K Battlegrounds
- WWE 2K BATTLEGROUNDS – Ultimate Brawlers Pass
- CivCity: Rome
- X-COM: COMPLETE PACK
- Hidden & Dangerous: Action Pack
- Hidden & Dangerous 2: Courage Under Fire
- Army Men RTS
- BioShock: The Collection
You can pay more and move the on-page sliders to determine how the money is shared between Humble, Covenant House and 2K. But, for at least $16 you get all these games. You can pick up the Holiday Encore Megahits Bundle from Humble’s store page here.
