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.

How to play Diablo 4 with friends
An adventuring party approaches a dungeon door in Diablo 4.

When you're going up against Lilith and her demonic army in Diablo 4, even a warrior as powerful as yourself could use a hand. While playing with friends has been possible in the series for some time now, it is much more fleshed out in the latest entry. This is an always-online game, meaning you will come across other players naturally as you play, and you have the option to partner up with them. While that's great, you will likely want to play with your friends first and foremost. Here's how you can form your ideal party of champions with friends in Diablo 4.

How to change your title in Diablo 4
Diablo 4 promotional image of Lillith

Despite creating a custom character, and even giving them a name, in Diablo 4, you are really only referred to as Wanderer during the game itself. Your name does appear to other players, however, as well as something called a Title. These are comprised of two words that add a little flavor and personality to you character. The thing is, even as you unlock more options as you play, the game doesn't give you much of a tutorial in how to customize it. Rather than walk around with your default Title for the entire game, spice things up by learning how to change your Title in Diablo 4,

The Outer Worlds 2: release date speculation, trailer, and more

Not to be confused with The Outer Wilds, the indie title that launched in the same year as The Outer Worlds, The Outer Worlds 2 is an upcoming sequel to the dystopian sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment, which Xbox announced during E3 2021. The original game was often referred to as a Fallout game but in space, which makes sense because Obsidian was responsible for what many consider one of the best, Fallout: New Vegas. It was a well-received game, though not without some flaws, leading many to wonder whether or not this new universe would ever come back. Many (including us) were surprised to see news about this game, and while there isn't much to go on just yet, we can make a few informed guesses on details we will get later on. For now, here's everything we know, and suspect, about The Outer Worlds 2. 
Release date

The initial reveal not only didn't have a release date, but was itself a parody of teaser trailers that have little to no information in them. All we can do for now is speculate on when we think The Outer Worlds 2 will actually be ready. The Outer Worlds came out near the end of 2019, but the last chunk of DLC for the game didn't hit until the end of 2021. The best-case scenario would be that a smaller team handled the DLC while another small team got to work on preproduction on the full-fledged sequel, but it is also possible that there was a gap of time before it was actually greenlit.
