Total War: WARHAMMER as part of March bundle - £9.58 ($12.00) @ Humble Monthly

Found 3rd Feb
Humble Bundle's February 2017 monthly bundle has just been revealed, which also prompts the announcement of the headline game for March 2017. Subscribe now (or pay early, for existing subscribers) for instant receipt of a Steam key for Total War: WARHAMMER . When the full bundle is revealed at the start of March, you'll receive a further seven games (most of which should come with Steam keys).

The base price for the bundle is $12.00, which currently works out at £9.58 (note that if you pay by PayPal, their currency exchange fees will increase this slightly). For new subscribers, if you've recently purchased one of the weekly bundles, you should be eligible for a 10% discount on the first month.

The current Civ Bundle (and probably a bundle starting on Tuesday) offers a "10% off Humble Monthly for New Subscribers" voucher ending "April 7th, 2017 at 10:00am Pacific".

Indeed! February's selection is, frankly, superb, even if I have just recently bought/played Abzu and Steamworld Heist on PS4.

Like most of the stuff in the previous bundle. Luckily none I owned yet. Hmmm never owned a Total War game...one I always thought might get round to playing at some point....not certain if I'll bite though

This is the best one so far! I mean XCOM 2 was pretty good, but this is a huge title that is less than a year old and hasn't been on sale for much less than £30 previously, so to get it for under a tenner with some other games is a fantastic deal.

Pretty pleased with the February bundle, thanks to this I'm definitely sticking with it for another month!

Yep.. can only assume they want to get players in to sell them DLC!

gotta love the humble monthly bundle. always something worthwhile and the last 5 months have been brilliant. absoutely utterly value for money. plus its great fun unlocking and seeing what you've got !

Bargain, think I'll get on this. It's it easy to cancel the subscription after purchase? I'm guessing the other games will be cheap indies?

Awesome deal. Was going to buy this in the next month anyway so timing is perfect.

Easy, yup. Just get the 1 month deal anyway.

Incidentally, along with XCOM2 this month was Ryse (not an indie game) and Steamworld Heist, Abzu... and a bunch of Indie titles.

Oh, this might just tempt me back for another month or two.

Added heat.

total war warhammer is absolutely brilliant

Waiting for this to drop below £20! Very pleased I also had a 10% off so great deal!

Last i played of this series was shogun and medieval, do you know if it has changed much since then?
e.g. will it take ages to learn?

I expect that the reason this is in this months bundle is because a game of the year edition is on the way so they need to get rid of as many keys as possible before they announce it. Still best price for the game I've seen in the year since release.

Super glad I went in for the XCOM 2 bundle, got 3 other wishlist games and a couple I hadn't heard of that sounded interesting, probably the best month they've done so far for me. This is another great headliner for sure although probably not a game I'd get round to playing plus I suspect this one may end up in a cheaper bundle down the line but £10 for this + 7 games is great regardless!

This looks good

OMG, I have subscribed just for Xcom 2 and was going to cancel tonight my subscription but I will be keeping it. Total War Warhammer for a tennar, smoking hot in here.

Can't imagine that's how it works. These are hypothetical numbers, but perhaps they offer Sega £3 for each Warhammer key generated with projected sales of 20000 copies (15000 for current and 5000 for new subs). The other titles in the bundle will get a lower offer (50p - £1?). It's all guaranteed sales for the developer at the end of the month so Humble can probably drive a hard bargain and obtain them at very low prices.

I agree a GOTY is probably on the cards though

I nearly bought this from Argos after Christmas; £27.99. Then I found out about the Old World Edition (all DLC) and decided to wait.

Got a bit of a dilemma now. <£10 for the base game, or ~£30 for OWE. Will probably work out about even either way I expect; the DLC on sale later this year for around £20 total seems likely.

Remember that you'll get seven more games here as well - the bundle price doesn't just go towards the headline game.

i got the xcom 2 one but the month games are CRAP, i expect that warhammer will be the only decent game here, still worth it though but i already have warhammer lul and id u plan on getting it youll want all the DLC which costs silly money...

​its very similar, much better graphics, and the AI and pathfinding is better....more strategic options on the campaign map. if you like the old total wars you'll enjoy. warhammer refreshing because of the fantasy setting

I kind of wonder if the way these keys are given to humble etc for 'charity' reasons are more way to reduce companies taxable profits. Eg 1000 game codes x $60 value = $60k less that is taxable. Sure not quite right - but there's probably a reason behind it

(not relating to Total War btw - but these games in general - but yeah seems common that the main game has a potential extra future dlc sale attached to it too)

Have you looked into Abzu and, in particular, Steamworld Heist? Both are excellent.

I can't see this being for tax reasons - the tax deduction, if any, will only be for the amount of the donation (i.e., equal to the reduction in their revenue), without any uplift/enhancement.

Interesting theory! But would that not imply I could release a terrible game with an rrp of £1000, sell no copies but give them away and write it off as a loss for my business? Surely that's not possible

(The monthly bundle donates 5% to charity)

I was thinking of going self employed, doing a John Carmack and ripping off Flappy Bird code, and doing the same thing

I've been staying off humble bundle until now but now is probably the time for me to jump in.

amazing price for a game I've wanted for a while now, thanks

I guess that's one upside. Chances are most (all?) of those games will join the Steam backlog though.

I'm going to give the bundle a go. I'll just wait for the DLC to hit an acceptable price. Under a tenner is a bargain for this, a bunch of other games, and getting the game now rather than in three weeks.

In the worst case, you can always look to resell any keys that you don't want, bringing down the overall net cost to you - it might even work out at a net profit!

Abzu - 92% positive on Steam
Ryse - 83%
Steamworld Heist - 97%
Okhlos - 87%
Project Highrise - 82%

Hardly Alien: Colonial Marines or Slaughtering Grounds now is it? Perhaps they're not games you personally enjoy (although I'd bet you haven't even tried half of them) but the clear consensus is that they all fall somewhere between very positive and overwhelmingly positive so you're certainly in the minority if that is the case.

Realistically what were you expecting if this is so utterly disappointing as a lineup (bearing in mind you already got XCOM 2 for your tenner)? I'm genuinely curious to see what someone with this mindset would have had to get out of this bundle to not just complain about it.
