Humble is giving away Age of Wonders III for a limited time as part of its big spring sale.

For the next 48 hours or so, Humble is giving away classic real-time strategy game, Age of Wonders III, for free. It’s properly free, too. There are no strings attached. You don’t even have to download it from the Epic Store, which will keep those diehard Steam supporters happy.

Age of Wonders III is free right now, while availability lasts, through until Friday, May 11th at 10am Pacific (6pm BST). And why are they doing this? To celebrate the big Humble Spring Sale.


Humble Spring Sale 2019

There are hefty discounts in the Humble Spring Sale, including offerings from Ubisoft, Square Enix, Paradox Interactive and more.

From the Square stable, there’s 50% off Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, with 75% off the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot’s Game of the Year edition. If you like strong, female protagonists, then there are also big discounts on a variety of Life is Strange releases, and first-person puzzle game, The Turing Test. For fans of immersive sims, there are games from both the Deus Ex and Thief series, and if you like blowing stuff up? Just Cause 4 is 50% off, too.

In Ubisoft’s sale – with a Ghost Recon sequel being announced as we speak – you can save 65% on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Recent release Far Cry New Dawn is 50% off, while the game the expandalone is based on, Far Cry 5, currently has a 67% saving. There are more Assassin’s Creed games than you can shake a concealed blade at, including 50% off Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and 70% off Assassin’s Creed Origins. Ubisoft’s secret best games – Steep and Watch Dogs 2 – also benefit from healthy savings.


There are a variety of discounts on games, DLC, and expansions from Paradox Interactive’s Cities: Skylines and Stellaris series, while Focus Home Interactive’s wide and varied catalogue – everything from Vampyr to Farming Simulator – also receive decent discounts. There are also games from Humble’s own publishing label, and plenty of indie games, large and small.

There are really far too many games for us to go through, so you’ll just need to head over to the Humble Spring Sale and check it out for yourself. The sale is on now, and runs through until Thursday, May 23rd at 10am Pacific (6pm BST).

And don’t forget: all purchases made from the Humble Store contribute to deserving charities.

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