The Humble Bundlers have launched their second collection of games from publisher 2K Games. The appropriately titled Humble 2K Bundle 2 offers the usual triple tier pricing structure, with gamers able to snag collections of games starting from $1 (£0.76), beat the average price to grab an even better collection, or go full throttle and buy the lot for $15 (£11.41) or more.

At the signature entry level price of $1 (£0.76) bundle buyers can grab The Darkness II, Spec Ops: The Line (shown above), and Duke Nukem Forever. At this level you also qualify for 10 per cent off Humble Monthly – if you are a new subscriber.

Beat the average price and you will be able to add Sid Meier's Civilization V, NBA 2K16, Mafia II Digital Deluxe Edition, and the Battleborn Start Skin Pack to your digital games catalogue. At the time of writing the average is $8.34 (£6.34). Included in this tier is 40 per cent off XCOM. With this middle tier there will be more games announced shortly.

The top tier is priced at $15 (£11.41). If you cough up this amount (or more) you will get all the above plus Battleborn, Battleborn Platinum Currency, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. According to the bean counters at Humble Bundle the complete Humble 2K Bundle 2 would usually cost as much as $320…

All the games in this bundle are redeemable on Steam and some are available for Mac and Linux too. Remember you can split your payment between the Humble Bundlers, 2K Games, Gamechanger, and a Paypal Giving Fund charity.

Thats the first bundle in a while to get my attention as i dont have Borderlands TPS or Battleborn
Sad to see Battleborn getting bundled so soon really, theyre really having playerbase issues, though from what I hear its still easy to get into a game anyway. The game didnt interest me at all personally, but its still quite sad to see.
This feels less like a drive to raise money for charity, and more like Battleborn *is* the charity this time.

Yep - some terrible launch timing and a marketing campaign that pitched it as an overwatch competitor really didn't help it though. Had they launched a month earlier or later it could have been a different story altogether.

Great bundle though I snapped this one up!
I grabbed this bundle too, without checking which games I already had, quite a few duplicates..!

Glad to have finally got Duke Nukem, heard it's not great but probably not bad for the price. Battleborn looks interesting but it does get very mixed reviews on steam, maybe the HB will raise it's profile as there'll be a bump in players.

I recently installed Borderlands 1 and really didn't enjoy it - got to the first boss (with the dogs) and he was far too bullet-spongey and the controls are too slow to stand much of a chance. I've dipped in to BL2 a couple of times on PS3 and will give it another go on PC, hoping the Pre Sequel will have some improvements.

Interested to see what extra games they add, and I'm more than happy to hand over my $15 to the Dogs Trust as well.
