Humble Bundle has been nothing but strong in 2018 — while February subscribers are getting Civilization VI, Tacoma, Life is Strange, and Owlboy, March is going to be a whole new beast. According to Humble Bundle, the top-billed slot for March goes to Dark Souls III and the accompanying Ashes of Ariandel DLC. Even better, you can grab both games now for only $12 (with more games to come).
What’s the catch? Seemingly, there isn’t one. If you haven’t participated yet, the Humble Monthly Bundle is the PC gamer equivalent of a subscription service. Each month, Humble (now purchased by IGN) doles out nearly $200 of games for the low price of $12.
Even better, it isn’t a game of delayed gratification and faith in the system. Since relatively early in the program’s life, they have introduced a monthly early unlock game that players can download ahead of their next month’s releases (provided you make the full payment). That game this month is Dark Souls III along with Ashes of Ariandel DLC. Of course, players can expect 5-7 more titles in addition at the beginning of next month at no additional cost.
And like all things Humble, a big chunk of the donations will be going to charity. In this case, 5% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
If you haven’t picked up Dark Souls III yet, you should. While the hardcore Souls fanbase will argue over the fine details and proficiencies of every game in the series, DualShockers awarded the game a 9.5 out of 10 even though we thought that the (then) $60 price tag wouldn’t be justifiable for everyone. But at 20% of that price (including the beautiful expansion and a swath of other games), it is well-worth dipping your toe into and testing out the waters.
Dark Souls III and the Ashes of Ariandel DLC are currently available for PC, as well as PS4 and Xbox One.
