The Humble Monthly Bundle is a $12 subscription service that instantly gives you access to one or two games, and then a whole bunch more once the next month rolls over. Last time around the featured games were an awesome combination of Quake Champions, The Elder Scrolls Online, and The Elder Scrolls: Legends, while this time you're looking at H1Z1 and two of its in-game Loot Boxes.

While I have recommend every single Humble Monthly Bundle so far because I thought it was genuinely good value for your time and money, I'm not so sure about this one. H1Z1 is currently $20 on Steam, so you're not getting much of a discount, and its also a bit of mediocre game given the consistently mixed reviews over the course of its lifespan. I'm not sure how valuable those two Loot Boxes truly are, but I can't imagine its enough to push this bundle over the edge, at least not for me.

The only argument I can really make in favor of this bundle is that the bonus games are bound to be interesting since the highlighted one is so bland. Whether its worth taking that kind of risk though, that I'll leave up to you to decide. Personally, I won't be grabbing this month's bundle as I simply don't care about yet another battle royale game, especially not when all of the potentially interesting bonus games are still a month away.

I can only hope the new Humble management will avoid these kind of bundles in the future, because the whole appeal behind Humble Monthly is getting big games at a big discount, rather than getting mediocre games at a mediocre discount. Who knows, maybe that's just me being grumpy. Either way, let me leave you with the latest trailer for H1Z1, just so you get a bit of an idea of what its all about:
