The Humble Store has been killing it lately with its Humble Monthly subscription. Recent bundles have included blockbuster games like Overwatch and Destiny 2, bundled with a handful of smaller games, all for just $12 per month. Humble has unveiled November’s early release titles, and it’s already shaping up to be another great month. If you join for just $12, you’ll instantly unlock Hitman, Hollow Knight, and 7 Days to Die, with an additional set of mystery games to be revealed on November 2. The only drawback is that you won’t know what the mystery games are until it’s too late to get the November bundle.
Hitman is the latest game to star the bald, barcoded killer. It came out episodically throughout 2016, but this is the complete, finished game, containing all six sprawling levels that act as murderous sandboxes in which you can get creative with your assassinations. In our 8/10 Hitman review, Brett Todd wrote, “This 2016 take on Hitman is a brilliant game. Expansive level design and nearly unlimited replay value courtesy of so many routes to your assassinations (and so many methods with which to carry them out) make the experience almost completely different each and every time you play.”
Hollow Knight is an elegantly crafted side-scrolling game that has you gradually exploring a massive underground environment. You unlock dozens of new abilities as you play, which help you face a variety of challenging bosses. Reviewer Alessandro Barbosa gave the game 9/10 in his Hollow Knight review, writing, “Hollow Knight feels exceptional because so many of its smaller, expertly designed parts fit so well together… But its expansive enemy roster and routinely surprising areas and platforming challenges ensure that your journey through this fallen bug kingdom is one you’re unlikely to forget.”
Finally, 7 Days to Die is a fitting game to play in October, seeing as it’s a survival game that’s stuffed full of zombies. But judging by our no-punches-pulled negative review, you might want to save this one for last. They can’t all be winners.
You can join Humble Monthly here for $12, and you can cancel at any time. The games you get come in the form of Steam codes, and they’re yours to keep and play forever. Other perks include access to all the games in The Trove, 10% off everything in the Humble Store, and access to exclusive deals. Plus, 5% of your payments goes to charity. If you want to assemble a nice collection of Steam games, this is probably the cheapest way to do it.
