All this week, the Humble Store is running a sale on PC games from Aspyr. Aspyr specializes in Mac and Linux ports, which means you don’t even need a Windows machine to take advantage of the sale. The Windows versions are also discounted, because Humble distributes these games in the form of Steam codes, which are unlocked across all relevant PC operating systems. But enough preamble–here are some of the standout titles discounted between now and October 1 at the Humble Store.
The world-conquering sim Civilization VI is on sale for $24 this week. As with previous entries in the series (several of which are also on sale), it has you start a settlement and guide it over the centuries to become a major world power. You can do this in a variety of ways, including military dominance, cultural influence, and technological superiority. The sci-fi real-time strategy game Homeworld Remastered Collection is also on sale for $10.50.
Fans of loot shooters can pic up Borderlands 2 for $5 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for $10. BioShock Infinite is down to $7.50, and Duke Nukem Forever is priced just right at $4. If you missed out on Mafia III when it launched two years ago, you can grab it this week for $10. And to help you get into the Halloween spirit, you might want to pick up Layers of Fear for just $5.
Many of these games have DLC, special editions, and season passes on sale as well. So if you’re interested in seeing what else is discounted this week, you can view the full sale here.
In other news, October’s Humble Monthly is a big one. When you buy in for just $12, you instantly get the early-unlock game Overwatch, which is regularly priced between $40 and $60. Then, on October 5, you’ll receive an additional bundle of games that includes Hidden Folks and Dungeons 3, along with other yet-to-be-revealed titles. Overall, it’s a good time to be a PC gamer who likes to save money.
