Just as choosing a TV series to binge has become an overwhelming task, choosing your next gaming addiction is harder than it seems. Fortunately, Humble Bundle’s Choice membership does the grunt work for you by offering up a handful of new PC games every month that you get to keep forever.
Crusader Kings III — the acclaimed grand strategy RPG — headlines the Humble Choice Bundle for September 2022, along with seven other great PC games. It’s a $250 value, but you’ll get to add the mix of action, strategy, RPG, and FPS games to your library for free as an active Choice member. Plus, on Sept. 27, you’ll get to journey into 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 get to keep forever is definitely the main draw of a Humble Choice membership(opens in a new tab), there are more perks that make the $12 per month worth it. You’ll get access to the Humble Games Collection through the Humble desktop app while you’re subscribed, which allows you to play a curated, ever-expanding library of great games. You can rediscover old favorites, unearth experimental oddities, and get lost in the archive full of indie hits. As a member, you’ll also get an increasing discount in the Humble Store that tops out at 20% once you’ve been a member for a year.
If there’s a game on the month’s roster that you’re not particularly interested in, you can opt to gift your game download to a non-Humble Choice member. You can trade with friends or simply give them a game as a gift at no cost to you. Or, of course, if none of the revealed games for the month spark your interest, you can simply pause your membership for a month to skip. No biggie.
What truly sets Humble Choice apart from other gaming subscriptions is that 5% of every membership is donated to a featured charity each month — September’s featured charity is Covenant House for homeless youth. Last month, members donated over $193,000 to the National Network of Abortion Funds.
Up to a dozen free games, shop discounts, Humble Games Collection(opens in a new tab) access, no commitment, and a good cause every month, all for only $12? Other subscriptions could never.
If you’re a regular PC gamer, the value-packed Humble Choice membership(opens in a new tab) is practically a no-brainer.
