Humble’s Lunar New Year sale is a great chance to catch up on 2019’s best games

In an age where players have more ways to purchase games than they can count, it feels like there’s a new marketplace sale every week. Following the lead of Steam and Nintendo, Humble is jumping on the bandwagon with its own Lunar New Year sale.

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, Humble is offering up to 80% off on select games, including many of 2019’s most poular and successful titles. Among the most notable titles being discounted are Devil May Cry V, which is on sale for $24, and Resident Evil 2, which can now be had for just $20, or 67% off the regular price.

Other titles include:

  • Borderlands 3 – $39
  • The Outer Worlds – $45
  • NBA 2K20 – $30
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 – $48
  • Monster Hunter World – $24

Humble’s sale couldn’t come at a better time. While spring 2020 is shaping up to be a landmark season for games, the winter release calendar has slimmed down significantly in recent weeks. Several game delays were announced within the industry, pushing back highly anticipated releases like Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Cyberpunk 2077.

The string of delays left February especially vacant, with both Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Iron Man VR getting pushed back as well. As a silver lining, February stands as an ideal month to catch up on all of the games you may have skipped over in 2019. Instead of trying to keep up with a slew of new releases, it’s a perfect time to finally sit down and play Resident Evil 2 before Resident Evil 3 releases later this spring.

Once March 20 hits, a relentless cycle of new releases kicks off when Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons drop on the same day. With so many promising games coming, it’s unlikely there will be many other opportunities to play catch-up. Last year may not have been a banner year for gaming, but Humble’s sale is a reminder that 2019 had plenty of highlights that were worthy of attention.

It can be difficult to keep up with the increased pace of modern game production, so consider the rest of this winter a rare chance to cross some great games off your wish list.

Dragon’s Dogma 2: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
Dragon's Dogma 2 key art featuring a knight with a fiery hole in their chest.

In a world where even the smallest audiences are being catered to with sequels like Neo: The World Ends With You and No More Heroes 3, there's basically no game that doesn't have a chance to come back in some form. In one of the latest examples, a small but passionate fanbase has been waiting patiently for a sequel to the very ambitious Dragon's Dogma. This action RPG came out next to some stiff competition in 2012, and despite having some great mechanics and systems plus a re-release, it never hit mainstream success. With the creator and director moving on to work on other games, this series was presumed dead for a long time.

As soon as Capcom announced that it would be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Dragon's Dogma, fans immediately predicted the announcement of a sequel. After all, why else would Capcom celebrate an anniversary for a franchise it had no intention of continuing? As it turns out, we were all correct. Dragon's Dogma 2 is finally being worked on. The excitement of this announcement has spilled out beyond the fans of the original, leading many to wonder why they should be excited about this sequel. For all that and more, here's everything we know about Dragon's Dogma 2.

Rockstar has confirmed exactly when it will drop the first trailer for the next mainline Grand Theft Auto game. It has been over a decade since the launch of Grand Theft Auto V, so excitement and hype surrounding the next GTA installment is at an all-time high. The release of Grand Theft Auto 6 Trailer 1 will be the biggest game reveal of 2023, so you don't want to miss it. Here's everything we know about when it'll air and how you can watch it.

Rockstar has confirmed that it will post "Trailer 1" for the next GTA game at 9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT on December 5. Make sure you don't oversleep Tuesday morning if you want to see the trailer right when it drops.
How to watch GTA 6 Trailer 1
Rockstar is expected to drop the trailer on its YouTube channel and X account, as the studio typically does for each trailer it releases. It has not set a premiere for the trailer on YouTube, so you'll need to keep an eye on and keep refreshing their YouTube page on Tuesday morning until Trailer 1 releases.
What to expect from GTA 6 Trailer 1
Rockstar Games has not revealed much regarding what will be shown in the trailer. The developer refers to it as "the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto" in its official messaging, so everything Rockstar Games decides to show off in the trailer will be a nice surprise. I've previously written about what I want to see from GTA 6's first trailer, so check that out if you're looking for more speculation.
