Final chance to save with the massive Humble Winter Sale

The Humble Winter Sale: 1 day remains.

The Humble Winter Sale: 1 day remains.

Update: 23rd January 2019

There is now just over a day – at the time of writing, one full day and around eight hours – left to score some big discounts with the big Humble Winter sale.

Humble has been adding more and more games to the sale as time has gone on, from a variety of publishers, but it’s fair to say that – with just under 32 hours left to run – this is as good as the Humble Winter sale is going to get.


And don’t forget that every penny spent at the Humble Store also raises money for important charities. So go on, fill your boots: you’ve not got long left on this one.

Original story:

This year’s – or is it last year’s? – Humble Winter Sale has been another corker.

Yes, every purchase you make will earn money for deserving charities, but also, you get to save lots of money on some great games. There are some really recent inclusions, too, including one of our games of the year last year – in the shape of Into The Breach – and some recent blockbusters, like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Monster Hunter World.

There are also huge swathes of the Final Fantasy back catalogue on sale, including 50% off Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, plus big savings on strategy titles like Civilization VI, Jurrasic World Evolution and Planet Coaster.

There are early access games, like Deep Rock Galactic, and venerable modern classics like Borderlands 2, Cities: Skylines, and the BioShock collection. Indie games are also very well-represented, with big savings on The Long Dark, Slime Rancher, Stardew Valley, and Papers, Please.

For the masochists among you, Dead Cells, Hollow Knight, and the games that arguably inspired a generation of rock-hard, combat-focused games – the Dark Souls series – are also on the list. And if you fancy a scare? There are a bunch of Resident Evil games, including Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, and Dying Light to choose from.


It’s a really big sale, is the key takeaway here.

The Humble Winter Sale runs through until 10am Pacific on January 24th, 2019; that’s 6pm GMT for the home crowd.

We may receive a small commission on purchases made from online stores.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
