Assuming you aren’t the type that buys every game at launch, PC gamers are aware of the monthly subscription “box” known as Humble Monthly. Next month’s bundle was recently revealed to be headlined by Civilization 6 and its 2 DLC packs, the Vikings Scenario, and Australian Civilization/Scenario packs. This is significant because Civ 6 hardly ever goes on sale, and when it does, it usually sits somewhere in the $40 range for just the base game.
So what is Humble Monthly?
It’s a small smörgåsbord of game codes valuing roughly $200 all for the price of $12. Each month, a headliner game is revealed to whet your wallets before the rest of the games are announced at the beginning of each month. The tradeoff is that you don’t know what the other games in the bundle are going to be, so if you end up with a code for a game you already have, you’re stuck.
Humble Monthly is targeted towards the patient and thrifty gamer, as it provides some of the best value, there is in gaming provided you have interest in the headliner title. On top of that, Humble Monthly subscribers get a 10% discount on everything in the Humble Store which can stack on top of whatever sales the site regularly throws. Suffice it to say; if you’ve got the cash, it’s a worthwhile investment for PC Gamers.
Civilization 6 originally released back in October of 2016 to the tune of an average Metacritic score of 88 and is one of the most played games on Steam. It’s also worth noting that this Humble Monthly deal coincides with the release of the game’s first expansion, Rise and Fall, which come out on February 8th and retails for $29.99.
So taking advantage of this Humble Monthly deal will get you everything Civilization 6 has to offer for a total of $42. Not bad.
