As usual, Classic and Premium subscribers can grab all the games in March 2021’s Humble Choice. Other types of plans, meanwhile, have a limit as to the number of games that can be obtained.
March 2021 Humble Choice: Control, XCOM Chimera Squad, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, and more
Control came out back in August 2019 as an Epic exclusive, though it eventually made its way to Steam as well. Control puts you in the shoes of Jesse Faden, the director of a clandestine agency known as the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC). The FBC is tasked with investigating and combatting supernatural threats, and Faden herself uses a shapeshifting firearm (the Service Weapon) and her own powers.
Steven Wong reviewed the title way back, and he considers it one of the best action games he played during that year. Likewise, it was one of the first few games that tried to maximize the use of ray tracing, and there’s no denying that the graphics are gorgeous. If you’re subscribed to the March 2021 Humble Choice, then the version of Control you’re getting is the standard edition with no DLCs included. However, you can grab the key for either Steam or Epic, and purchase the season pass afterward.
Another inclusion in the March 2021 Humble Choice is XCOM: Chimera Squad. The tactical strategy franchise’s latest outing came out back in August 2020, and it featured cartoony design and quirky characters. Although XCOM: Chimera Squad was a fairly bite-sized offering compared to the mainline titles, it still managed to wow me with its breach mechanics, narrative, and unique characters. If you do grab it, don’t forget to take a look at our guides and features hub.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds is also part of this month’s selections. I reviewed the title back in September 2020 and, funnily enough, I quite enjoyed the over-the-top and ridiculous reimagining of my favorite WWE wrestlers. Unfortunately, the bombastic brawler offered very little in terms of engagement and replayability. WWE 2K Battlegrounds felt too repetitive and limited owing to class-based movesets and a lack of customization options.
Kingdom Two Crowns and ELEX are two more options. The former is a side-scrolling adventure game where you gradually expanded your domains. The latter, meanwhile, is an open-world action RPG.
Rounding out the remaining offerings are Cyber Hook, Boreal Blade, Wildfire, Hotshot Racing, Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, Ageless, and Pesterquest. You can check out all of these via the official page for the March 2021 Humble Choice.
