Humble launches 2K Games bundle
July 9, 2014 // 12:12 p.m.
A new pay-what-you-want Humble Bundle has launched, this time featuring a collection of triple-A games from 2K.
The basic bundle includes BioShock, XCOM reimagining The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and The Darkenss 2. Paying more than the average amount will also unlock Bioshock 2, Mafia 2 and acclaimed critique on the modern military shooter Spec Ops: The Line.
Paying more than $20 for the bundle will also unlock XCOM: Enemy Unknown and BioShock Infinite. Additional games are also set to be added to the bundle soon for anyone who has paid above the average amount.
Early bundles required all titles to be DRM free and available on Mac and PC alongside the PC. In this case, only XCOM: Enemy Unknown is available on all three operating systems and only BioShock is available DRM free.
Proceeds from the bundle are going to 2K Games itself and charities Action Against Hunger and the American Red Cross. At time of writing, the bundle has already raised over $1m and is running for another two weeks.
Whilst the Humble Bundle started off as a showcase for lesser known indie titles, 2K Games is following in the footsteps of other triple-A publishers including Deep Silver, THQ and EA who have all also teamed up with the Humble Team.
The Humble Bundle site also now hosts a weekly bundle, a book bundle and a dedicated digital distribution front for indie titles alongside its headline main bundles.
