Humble Bundle has quickly become the go-to place for PC players looking for a good deal, with the storefront offering bundles of great games for extremely low prices with the proceeds often going to good causes. The store's most recent bundle dropped today and sees players able to pick up 12 titles, with new subscribers getting the entire lineup for only $12.
The March bundle is headlined by Remedy's Control, Firaxis' XCOM: Chimera Squad, and Piranha Bytes's ELEX. Alongside the trio, players will also get Kingdom Two Crowns, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, Hotshot Racing, Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, Cyber Hook, Pesterquest, Wildfire, Boreal Blade, and Ageless. New subscribers wanting to get the deal for $12 will need to sign up for the service's premium plan, while already existing Humble Bundle users will have to pay $19.99 for the premium plan or $14.99 for the basic plan.
As for the games themselves, Control is likely the stand-out option, offering Remedy's award-winning 2019 sci-fi action blockbuster for a low price. The title is one of the bigger games to feature on Humble Bundle in recent months and is definitely a steal while the offer lasts. XCOM: Chimera Squad, on the other hand, released last year and stands as a spin-off to the sensationally popular XCOM franchise. Players command a group of alien and human agents who must team up to save City 31, offering a unique take on the strategy-focused series that played around with several new ideas.
ELEX is an RPG that initially launched back in 2017, with the premise centering around a fictional world that blends science-fiction and fantasy concepts. Some of the more enticing non-headline games include Saber Interactive's take on the WWE license in 2K Battlegrounds, FuturLab's puzzle-game adaptation of Peaky Blinders, and Curve Digital's fast-paced, cartoony racing title, Hotshot Racing. It's a solid bundle of content, especially for new subscribers who are essentially picking up each game for $1.
Console players looking for some great gaming deals can currently get several Assassin's Creed games for a reduced price on Xbox, including Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Odyssey. PlayStation players are also in luck, with Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Remnant: From the Ashes being made available for no additional cost to PS Plus subscribers. They can even get Ratchet and Clank without paying a cent, with the game currently being offered to all PlayStation players as part of Sony's Play at Home Initiative.
Typically, Sony reveals the upcoming month's PS Plus games on the last Wednesday of every month, barring holiday season. So, it was odd that Wednesday came and went, and there was no PS Plus reveal for March. Some thought it would take place at the State of Play on Thursday (February 25), but it did not show there either. Nonetheless, it seems like the wait may have just been worth it.
The upcoming PS Plus games for March 2021 include Final Fantasy 7 Remake, the PS5 game Maquette, Remnant from the Ashes, and Farpoint VR. Each of these games are interesting in their own right, though FF7 Remake comes with a major caveat, and they will be made available March 2.
