If you are a fan of Ubisoft’s stabby, shadow-and-rooftop lurking Hitman variant, then you are in luck. The Humble Assassins Creed Bundle focusses exclusively on some of Ubisoft’s best Abstergo centered games.
Humble Bundle’s pay-what-you-want offer will net you all three Assassin’s Creed Chronicles titles; along with the title that started it all. This is the perfect tier to get for long-term fans of the franchise. Sure, it may include the first game, but let us be real: you probably did not buy Chronicles, right? Well, now you can, and at a steal too!
Of course, as per Humble Bundle’s usual strategy, you can pay more than the average to unlock the next tier. As per the time of writing, the average is $7 USD flat. This second tier awards you with Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, Assassin’s Creed 3 and the first episode of its Tyranny of King Washington add-on; as well as the Deluxe Edition of Assassin’s Creed 2. This is obviously a lot more meaty than the first tier. Personally, I would get it simply for Assassin’s Creed 3 (since I am one of the only three people who actually loved that game), but getting Assassin’s Creed 2 is a steal at only $7 USD (R95 ZAR).
For those who likes to give… or pay a fairer price for a heck of a lot of games, can opt to give $15USD (R205 ZAR) or more for the Humble Assassin’s Creed Bundle. Those who pay for this tier will get everything above, as well as Assassin’s Creed: Unity, and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.
It is clear that the Humble Assassin’s Creed Bundle focuses a lot more on the lesser hits in the franchise. Save for Assassin’s Creed 2, and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, it excludes hits like Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag; Assassin’s Creed: Revelations; and Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. Interestingly, the latest title in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is also excluded from the bundle. This is by far the least sold title in the franchise history — but it also goes on sale often.
Whether you are on the fence about Assassin’s Creed, or whether you are a longtime fan. This Humble Bundle is good for at least one thing: charity. Proceeds from the Humble Assassin’s Creed Bundle will go to the Pablove Foundation, which supports children with cancer; and CéKeDuBonheur, a charity that supports young, hospitalised people. Your entire purchase can go to either one, and it is all up to you how much goes to which organisation.
In 2016, Humble Bundle featured better Assassin’s Creed bundles that included most games in the franchise. Moreover, Ubisoft also gave Assassin’s Creed 3 away for free as the last gift for their Ubi30 celebration. Nevertheless, this Humble Assassin’s Creed Bundle is for a good cause.
All games must be redeemed via UPlay on Windows. As such, I do not believe that Downloadable Content (DLC) associated with the games can be redeemed with titles already owned on Steam.
