  • The well-loved Humble Monthly may now be history, but only because it made room for Humble Choice, its youthful and seemingly promising successor.
  • There's no longer a flat monthly fee, given that Humble Choice offers you three different monthly subscription plans: Lite, Basic, and Premium. Each plan is priced differently, based on the amount of content it offers.
  • For more deals and free games, you can visit the dedicated Humble Bundle section on our website.

Humble Bundle Monthly: What is it?

Whether you’re a hardcore gamer, or just like hoarding awesome titles in your virtual library, we have some exciting news for you. Humble Bundle is an online platform where you can get a lot of games, but also books, comics, and even software, for a bargain price.

If you’re already familiar with this service, it’s time to get down to business. You can grab Humble Bundle’s awesome deals in various ways: you can either wait for your desired titles to show up in bundles, purchase a Humble Choice plan, or check out the Humble Store.

Humble Monthly vs Humble Choice

It’s no longer a secret; Humble Bundle has been here for a long while and has already built some solid reputation. If you feel a bit nostalgic (much like we do) you’ll surely remember there was a time when you could pay as little as $12 per month in exchange for a lot of games. We refer to this pleasant time as the “Humble Monthly” era.

However, times have changed and Humble Monthly has grown into what today we know as Humble Choice. It’s similar, but not exactly the same. There are three different plans, and you can choose the games you get to keep. As a result, there’s no longer a standard $12 monthly payment, as each plan is priced differently and offers you a different amount of content.

Note: if you have a Humble Monthly (classic) plan since before the Humble Choice came to be, you can keep using it. However, if you cancel it (unsubscribe), you will lose it forever. To make matters worse, there’s no way to revert to the Classic plan once you’ve unsubscribed.

How does Humble Choice work?

Even if you miss the good ol’ days when you paid a flat $12 monthly fee for games galore, many users argue that Humble Choice is fairer to the average consumer. The cheapest option ($5) grants you access to a DRM-free game catalog, whereas the most expensive plan ($20) lets you choose 9 titles every month from a 10+ selection of curated games.

Additionally, as long as you’re a subscriber, you get some generous discounts off certain titles in the Humble Store. Thus, the Lite and Basic subscriptions grant you a 10% off discount, while the Premium plan can shave up to 20% off your purchases.

One thing that’s worth mentioning is that unlike the bundles section, Humble Choice doesn’t offer anything besides games. At least not for the time being, anyway. Long story short, this monthly subscription was designed with gamers in mind, and will probably stay that way.

Humble Choice May 2020

Another important, yet somewhat obvious piece of info we didn’t cover is that the list of curated games changes each month. So there are slim chances you’ll get to see the same game in different selections.

Which brings us to the next part of our article:

Humble Trove: Free & DRM-free games

The Humble Trove is a nice touch to the Humble Choice plans. It’s only fair that Basic plan subscribers get something besides store discounts, right? Joke aside, regardless of the plan you wish to purchase, Humble Bundle offers you free access to the Humble Trove.

Presentation Humble Trove

Thus, the Trove is but a collection of DRM-free games that you can download on your PC and play for free. That being said, as long as you’re a Humble Choice subscriber, you’ll always have access to this catalog.

If you cancel your Humble Choice subscription you won’t be able to access the Trove again. On the bright side, you’re free to play the games that you’ve already downloaded to your PC before your subscription expired.

FAQ: Learn more about Humble Bundle Monthly

  • Is Humble Monthly the same as Humble Choice?

While the principle is quite similar, the application is somewhat different. Humble Monthly offered several games for a flat monthly fee of $12, whereas Humble Choice provides you with three plans. Depending on your needs, you can choose a cheaper plan for fewer games or a more expensive one for the full package.

  • Does Humble Choice let me pick any game?

If you opt for a Basic or Premium plan, you can pick 3, respectively 9 titles out of each month’s curated list of games. The Lite subscription plan only gives you access to the Humble Trove and doesn’t let you pick out any title from the current month’s list. Here’s more info about how Humble Bundle works.

  • Can I pause my Humble Choice subscription?

Yes, you can pause your Humble Choice subscription if you already have some, most, or all of the games in the monthly list, or if you simply want to take a month-long pause from it. However, you should know that during your pause, you will temporarily lose all your subscription benefits.
