Humble 2K Bundle Is Ridiculous Deal For PC Gamers
2K Games is offering several of its games at a serious discount now. The Humble 2K Bundle includes BioShock Infinite and Spec Ops: The Line among others.
As long as you pay at least $1 for the bundle, you'll get access to BioShock, The Darkness 2 and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. In BioShock, players travel to the ruined city of Rapture far under the sea. The Darkness 2, another first-person shooter, stars a gangster wielding a dark supernatural force. The Bureau has players command a squad of agents trying to stop an alien invasion in the Cold War era.
By beating the average donation (currently $6.45), you'll get three more games. BioShock 2 is set ten years after the original game. Players take on the role of a Big Daddy, a heavily armored soldier, trying to protect the mysterious little girls of Rapture. New multiplayer modes let players slug it out in team-based battles using weapons and magical abilities.
The next beat-the-average game on offer is Mafia 2. This open-world crime game stars Vito Scaletta, a gangster trying to climb the ranks of an organized crime family in Empire Bay. Vito must undertake various unsavory jobs to make a name for himself.
Gamers who pay $6.45 or more will also get Spec Ops: The Line. This third-person shooter is set in Dubai after sandstorms have caused widespread evacuations. Players lead a squad trying to locate any survivors of this natural disaster. The game was widely praised for its story, which is intent on exposing the horrors of war and glorified violence of shooters.
The Humble 2K Bundle also offers two more games to customers willing to pay $20 or more. The first is XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the reboot of a classic strategy series. The player leads a secretive agency tasked with defending Earth from extraterrestrial threats. The player directs troops in battles against hostile aliens. Using extraterrestrial materials recovered from each fight, they must then research new technologies and build new equipment to help their fighting force's chances in future skirmishes.
The other $20+ game in the bundle is BioShock Infinite. This first-person shooter revolved around Booker DeWitt, a former soldier hired to rescue the mysterious Elizabeth from the floating city of Columbia. Booker and Elizabeth will work together to fight the two warring factions of Columbia along with a monstrous bird intent on keeping Elizabeth imprisoned.
Additional bonus games will be announced soon. Generally Humble Bundle announces them about a week after the bundle goes on sale. Check the website next Tuesday to find out how 2K has sweetened the pot.
