The Humble Origin Bundle Is A Steal
Don’t feel sad, PC gamers — you get a bundle too.
Electronic Arts’ Origin service hasn’t seen much popularity since its launch for a few reasons, so in a bid to attract new users EA has teamed up with Humble Bundle for a surprisingly good offer. Games aside, all proceeds received by EA will be donated to five charities. And the biggest surprise of all? You’ll be getting a few Steam keys too!
Since the games can only be acquired via Steam or Origin, the minimum price to acquire this Humble Bundle is US$1. Even so, it’ll net you titles as recent as Dead Space 3, which is currently listed for SG$64.90. Other notables include Mirror’s Edge (considering how its sequel is in development) and Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box.
Paying above the average — US$4.72 as of press time — will also get you Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3. The latter comes with the “Late Night” and “High-End Loft Stuff” expansion packs, which makes it fairly more attractive for Mac gamers as this is the only Mac-compatible title of the lot.
Regardless of what you pay, the Humble Origin Bundle comes with soundtracks for both Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3, in your choice of MP3 or delicious FLAC. Last day for this Bundle is on 28 August.
