Some changes are coming to the Humble Bundle. Humble Monthly is now becoming Humble Choice, which offers a variety of different options for gamers. Perhaps the biggest change is that there will no longer be any mystery; from now on, all games will be revealed upfront. You’ll also be able to choose a certain number of games you want to keep, plus a 10-20% discount on the Humble Store, depending on which plan you choose. All plans include access to the DRM-free Humble Trove.
Newcomers to the Humble Bundle service can choose between three different plans: Lite, Basic, and Premium. However, if you are a current Humble Monthly subscriber, you can keep your current rate of $12 USD and subscribe to a fourth plan, Classic.
If you aren’t already subscribed to the Humble Monthly and you want to lock in your rate for Classic when it shows up later this year, then check out November’s offerings. The bundle includes Spyro Reignited Trilogy, which just came out last month. We gave that game an 8 out of 10.
It’s a little weird to see these changes come to Humble Monthly. After all, the website has remained relatively static over the last several years. IGN acquired Humble Bundle about two years ago, and at the time the company promised that it had no intention of changing the current business model at Humble Bundle. It looks like those intentions might have changed, however.
A Reddit thread discussing the news about Humble Bundle doesn’t convey much positivity about the new changes. Several users state that while they like knowing what games will be released each month, they are not happy with the price increase and locking people out of the Classic plan.
