Humble Bundle teams up with WB Games

Humble Bundle teams up with WB Games

The WB Games Humble Bundle is supporting the We Can Be Heroes charity and has already raised more than $1.5m.

WB Games has received the pay-what-you-want bundle treatment in the latest Humble Bundle.

The bundle features Batman: Arkham Asylum, F.E.A.R 2, F.3.A.R and Lord of the Rings: War in the North as standard and Batman: Arkham City and Scribblenauts Unlimited for anyone paying over the average.

All the titles are available on Steam for Windows with Batman: Arkham City also available on Mac.

At the time of writing, the average amount paid is $4.62 and just over 330,000 bundles have been sold. It has already raised more than $1.5m in a single day. The top two contributors have paid $2,500 and $2,100 respectively for the bundle.

In a slight twist from normal Humble Bundles, the WB Bundle is supporting a single charity, We Can Be Heroes. This charity aims to provide funds to tackle the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. Proceeds can also still be split between the developers and the Humble Bundle team itself.

The Humble Bundle team started out with purely indie titles filling the pay-what-you-want packages but has more recently been testing bundles with more traditional triple-A titles. It has struck deals with Deep Silver, THQ and in one of its most successful bundles, EA.

Alongside the main Humble Bundle, the team also runs a weekly sale which at present is featuring a Team 17 collection with titles from the Worms, Alien Breed and Superfrog franchises.

I would have picked this up if I didn't already have the batman games from previous deals (steam sales etc). If I remember correctly fear 2 was rubbish and I didn't even bother reading any reviews for fear 3, and I've never paid any attention to the others.

Got. I only really needed F3AR.

Ed. I thought Fear 2 was awesome.

I've never played it but am sure I remember it being totally slated in reviews... I loved the first one though.

Good on Warner for this. I'll pick it up. I don't have any of these actually so it'll be a bargain for me. I'll chuck a tenner on this (and then in standard steam style, never play any of them...)

And for the record, anyone who slated EA for doing this earlier in the year, come here and slate Warner for doing this.

Word. I finally counted up what I haven't played (and in a lot of cases, even downloaded) yet between Steam and Humble Bundles. It was over 50...but that didn't stop me from hitting up HB9, HB with Android 7, and the Humble Kalypso Bundle.

Now, where's my wallet? I got Batman:AA last summer, but I've been waiting to pick up Batman:AC, too...

I've been a big fan of the Humble Bundle since I came across it earlier this year and have had some real bargins, this one isn't any good to me as I have all the games on this deal that I'd want. I recommend the HB deal to anyone I know who plays games, its simply amazing the good stuff they offer.

Fear 2 was dreadful. Compared to the PC-centric experience that was Fear 1, the second game was a console-ported turd.

Fear 3 was good though.

Meh I loved it. So much so I played through it twice. Mind you I had never played FEAR so I guess my first experience of Alma was the best.

It was woefully too short though.

Saw this earlier this week, will probably be buying it soon since I don't own any of the games, and while none of them really make me want to play them, I've heard good things about enough of them for me to go for it :)

Woah, Lord of the Rings: War in the North is showing up for me (in NZ) as 73.99 USD. Gobsmacked.
