The Humble Origin Bundle has raised over $8 million for charity, so EA decided to kick in a couple of extra games including one seriously old-time classic.
The Humble Origin Bundle is a pretty sweet deal by any measure. Rolled out last week, it offers Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror's Edge, Medal of Honor, Battlefield 3, The Sims 3 and The Sims 3 Starter Pack, all for about five bucks. Better yet, EA isn't keeping a dime, as all money raised is going to charity and the Humble Bundle. It came out of the gates fast, raising over $5 million in less than two days, and now the deal is even sweeter.
On top of all the gaming goodness already in the Humble Origin Bundle, paying more than the average will now net you the clunkily-named standalone expansion Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising and the old Bullfrog classic Populous, the granddaddy of god games. Uprising will be offered via Steam key as well as through Origin, while Populous will be supplied exclusively through Origin. As always, people who have already purchased the bundle at more than the average price will get the two new games automatically.
The Humble Origin Bundle is now past the $8.2 million mark, bringing the total amount of money raised for charity by the Humble Bundle and the gamers who support them to more than $20 million. That's an awful lot of good for some very good causes.
There's still almost six days left on the Humble Origin Bundle clock and the "get it all" average price remains well under five bucks. If you haven't picked it up already, humblebundle.com is the place you want to be.
