There’s a new Humble Bundle, and taking a look at it this offers a truly heinous selection of games. Heinous in that they could conceivably devour your time like a cosmic soul-sucking Lovecraftian horror. Who else could be behind such a thing than the folks at strategy gurus Firaxis.

The Humble Firaxis Bundle includes 10 of the studio’s most well renowned games, with the promise of more to come. The headline acts include both XCOM: Enemy Unknown and XCOM: Enemy Within, along with some of the more modern Civilization hits such as Civ: Beyond Earth and Civilization V

That latter one is most definitely the standout deal. Pay $15 and you get access to everything, including Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth and its Exoplanets map pack. That’s just about the cheapest price we’ve seen for it yet, and you get a bunch of other games thrown into the mix.

Sid Meier’s Pirates is a bit of a dud considering you can buy that for about 50p these days, but that’s easily outstripped by Civilization V and the Complete Edition of Civ IV.

Pay $1

  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown
  • Sid Meier’s Pirates!
  • Ace Patrol BUndle
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization III Complete

Beat the Average - $9.72 Currently

  • Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: The Complete Edition
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization V
  • Sid Meier’s Starships
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Soldier Pack
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Slingshot Pack
  • XCOM: Enemy Within
  • 10% off Humble Monthly Bundle
  • More games to come

Pay $15

  • Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth - Exoplanets Map Pack
  • 33% off coupon for Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide DLC

That’s a mighty haul right there, provided you don’t own a hefty chunk of these games already. Obviously if you don’t like turn-based strategy games then turn away right now, this pack just isn’t for you. You can find out more details and purchase the bundle over on Humble.

Anybody picking this one up? Or saving your cash for XCOM 2 in a matter of weeks?

Was just about to buy Enemy Within. Perfect timing, and a good excuse to get Beyond Earth. ^^

Those few strategy fans who haven't tried xcom should do so now, you have very little to lose... except your time of course. :)

It depends on your skill level and the difficulty level you've chosen. On "normal" it can take about twenty hours depending on how quickly you complete the objectives... I wonder if I could use one of my Psi units mind-control abilities to "encourage" others to play this game. :)
