Humble WB Games Bundle Offers Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City For Cheap
The latest Humble Bundle isn't a collection of indie games. Instead, all six of the titles in the package are from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
The Humble WB Games Bundle includes Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, F.E.A.R. 3, Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition and Scribblenauts Unlimited. As long as you pay at least $1, you'll get Steam keys for the first four. Arkham City and Scribblenauts will only be included if you beat the average donation, currently hovering at about $4.47.
Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are open-world games that let players become the Dark Knight. In the first game, he must put down a revolt at a home for the criminally insane. The sequels finds him cleaning up the streets of a section of Gotham. Players will use stealth to stalk and take down criminals. They can also fight groups of thugs in massive brawls. Occasionally players will also go head-to-head with Batman's fiercest opponents, such as the Joker and Killer Croc. The Game of the Year editions of the game come with all the DLC released to date, including new challenge maps and a new quest called "Harley Quinn’s Revenge."
F.E.A.R. 2 and F.E.A.R. 3 are supernatural shooters. Players battle mercenaries, supernatural beasts and a creepy girl named Alma. They can use a slow-mo ability to get the edge in firefights. The co-op mode for F.E.A.R. 3 allows players to become Paxton Fettel, a powerful psychic that can hurl objects with his mind or possess enemies. Both games also shipped with numerous multiplayer modes.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a co-op action RPG set during the events of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. As a dwarf, elf or human, players will battle the forces of Sauron in an attempt to help the Fellowship of the Ring complete their quest. All three playable characters have distinct abilities that can be upgraded over time.
Scribblenauts Unlimited is quite a bit different than the other parts of the bundle. In this game, players summon objects and characters by writing their names. They must then use what they summoned to solve puzzles. For example, you can summon a helicopter to help you cross a chasm. Players can also build their own custom objects and share them via Steam Workshop.
Humble Bundles are typically full of indie games but major publishers get in on the action from time to time. Other publishers who previously offered their games through pay-what-you-want compilations include THQ and EA.
The proceeds for the bundle will be split between WB Games, Humble Bundle Inc., and We Can Be Heroes. Humble Bundle buyers can determine how their money will be split between the three parties. We Can Be Heroes is a charity devoted to fighting hunger in the Horn of Africa.
