Humble Classics Return Bundle: Where the best deals are

Jack Baker 22 February 2018 NEWS

Which of the games offers the biggest discounts?

The new Humble Bundle is all about the classics and the successors to those titles. This bundle should really just be called the "Humble a lot of RPG and strategy games Bundle" as there are only three games in this bundle that don't fit into that category. So, if you're a big fan of RPGs and strategy games, like myself, you're in luck.

Tier 1 from the Classics Return bundle will net you two Shadowrun games as well as Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent's Curse and Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure for US$1/AUD$1.27. The cost of these games would usually amount to US$74.96/AUD$95.46 from steam, representing a saving of 96.42% or US$73.96.

The second tier of the bundle includes yet another Shadowrun game, this time in the form of the latest title, Shadowrun: Hong Kong, Age of Wonders III, Xenonauts and Wasteland 2. The value of the games in this tier amount to US$189.92/AUD$241.82, saving US$181.65/AUD$231.29 or 95.65%.

Tier 3 adds only two more titles to the bundle, on top of the other titles from tiers 1 and 2. Torment: Tides of Numenera is an RPG and Dreamfall Chapters: the Final Cut Edition is an adventure title. The tier's value sits at US$259.9/AUD$331.06, bringing in a saving of US$244.9/AUD$311.89 or 94.23%. As a nice bonus, Humble Bundle Monthly subscribers receive US$2 of Humble Wallet credit.

If you enjoy the music in these titles, you're in luck. This bundle includes 2 soundtracks as bonuses. The first tier includes the Tesla Effect soundtrack and the second tier includes the Wasteland 2 soundtrack.

Below, you can find a complete list of games included in each tier, their developer, publisher and usual Steam price as well as savings data. Remember, Tier Two includes all Tier One games, and Tier Three includes all Tier One and Tier Two games. If you'd like to pick up this bundle, make sure you get it before it expires. The Humble Classics Return Bundle ends at 6am AEDT on 7 March.
