Humble Bundle has launched its second Origin games bundle. All the games come from EA/Origin and include titles from the following series; Dragon Age, Command and Conquer, Mass Effect and Medal of Honour.
As usual there are a number of payment tiers available. In this case you can pay what you want (>$1 for Origin and Steam key access) for a base collection of five games which are; Dragon Age: Origins, Peggle, Dead Space 2, Command & Conquer Generals + Zero Hour, and Medal of Honour Allied Assault War Chest. To try and tempt you to 'beat the average' the Humble Bundle is offering the following extra games to purchasers; Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, Dragon Age II, Bejeweled 3, and Mass Effect 2. Plus, as is often the case now, there will be other games added to the bundle for those who pay more than the average at the time of purchase.
As an Origin bundle you will not be surprised to hear that all of the games are played via the Origin client. However some of the games can be activated in Steam, if you prefer. The Steam compatible games are both Dragon Age titles, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2. If you are a Mac gamer only Dragon Age II and Bejeweled 3 run natively on your OS X system.
The Humble Bundle home page declares that the current full selection of games would be worth $134 in retail if bought separately. The current average price you will have to beat to qualify for the higher tier games and bonus titles, as and when announced, is $4.78 (£3.25). Purchasers can move $$$ sliders around to distribute payment contribution amounts between charities and the optional Humble tip.
The Humble Origin Bundle 2 purchase period will expire in 13 and a half days from now. 166,000 bundles have already been sold.
