Everything in the Humble 2K PlayStation Bundle
The Humble Bundle usually focus on Steam and Android games, but every once and a while we get a console bundle. Now is one of those times with the Humble 2K PlayStation Bundle, with a slew of PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita titles for your playing pleasure. Let’s get right into the good stuff:
XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus (Vita)
XCOM: Enemy Unknown made some big waves when it first released on the PS3 and PC, and this portable version is a port of this popular game. This version, as it may not be readily easy to tell, also includes the content from the XCOM: Enemy Unknown expansion.
Civilization Revolution 2 Plus (Vita)
Civilization Revolution 2 is a simplified version of the 4x Civilization series, and the tweaks make it far more accessible on a handheld console like the Vita. This Plus version adds new leaders, scenarios, and units over the original version.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (PS3)
Includes all DLC
While XCOM is more well known now as a strategy series, but The Bereau: XCOM Declassified is a shooter in that same series. The Humble Bundle version of this PS3 game also comes with all the DLC, making this the definitive experience.
Evolve has four human players going against one gigantic monster, trying to work together to defeat the enemy that can so easily defeat them. The player playing the monster can work to evolve their character, making them more deadly and able to wipe out the four human team. Remember that you need PlayStation Plus in order to play online on the PS4.
Beat the Average Tier
XCOM: Enemy Within (PS3)
XCOM: Enemy Within is an expansion of sorts to Enemy Unknown, but the game is standalone so there’s no worries about being unable to play it if you don’t have the PlayStation 3 version of Enemy Unknown. Enemy Within really ramps up the difficulty with scenarios that can affect your ability to defeat the alien threat, particularly because the humans still can’t stop fighting long enough to unify and fight the common enemy.
BioShock is a very well known first person shooter, with a fascinating narrative explored in the ruins of the utopic Rapture. If you haven’t had a chance to experience this iconic game yet, now’s the perfect chance to pick it up with a slew of other titles.
Includes Platinum VC
Battleborn is essentially Gearbox’s answer to Overwatch. The title has recently gone free to play, but the bundle includes that Platinum VC, which gives you some extra goodies.
Borderlands has become a well-known series for mixing first person shooter and RPG elements into a crazy game with its own unique setting. This version of Borderlands is on the PS3 too, so no need for PlayStation Plus to play online.
Borderlands 2 Ultimate Edition (PS3)
Not only do we get the first Borderlands, but its sequel, too. Borderlands 2 improves on many aspects of the original title, and this Ultimate Edition comes with a ton of the DLC. It’s valued at $100 on the PlayStation Store, so seeing it here in this bundle is a hell of a deal.
Mafia II (PS3)
Mafia II has you playing as a gangster working through the ranks of the Mafia crime families, clawing and killing your way to the top. This is an open world game similar to the Grand Theft Auto series, and released to critical acclaim on the PlayStation 3.
Spec Ops: The Line (PS3)
Spec Ops: The Line may seem like a typical military shooter, but it manages to impress gamers with a plot that really makes you question what you’re doing. It’s interesting to have to face what is essentially second nature at this point, and the truth may leave you unsettled.
XCOM 2 (PS4)
The sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, XCOM 2 takes the series to the current generation with updated visuals and gameplay. Even at the $20 tier, XCOM 2 is a relatively recent release and is a steal at that price… not to mention all the other games you’ll get with it!
