Games Workshop has never been what you’d call stingy when it comes to licensing its stuff for videogames, which is why there are about a thousand different Warhammer games on the market at any given moment, and twice that number if you count Warhammer 40,000. That makes them a good candidate for bundles of the Humble sort, such as the Humble Warhammer Bundle 2020 that went live today.
A $1 buy-in will get you Warhammer 40K: Kill Team, Warhammer 40: Dawn of War, Warhammer 40K: Legacy of Dorn – Herald of Oblivion, and—mixing things up a bit—Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. Beat the average price and you’ll also get Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, Warhammer 40K: Sanctus Reach, and Warhammer 40K: Deathwatch Enhanced Edition. And at the $15 price point, you’ll also take home Warhammer 40: Space Marine Collection, Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3, and—another change of direction—Blood Bowl 2 Legendary Edition. Because yes, Blood Bowl is a Warhammer game, too.
Another consequence of the massive number of Warhammer videogames out there is that some of them really aren’t very good, but others—including at least a few in this bundle—are excellent. The Dawn of War RTS games are great (although the Dawn of War 3 campaign was a bit of a letdown compared to its predecessor), Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is gorgeous and engaging, and Vermintide is a brilliant co-op shooter. So while it’s all very grimdark, it’s also a really interesting mix of some very good games.
The Humble Warhammer Bundle 2020 will be available until July 28. Picking it up at the top tier will also get you a free month on new signups to the Humble Choice subscription service.
