This superb Warhammer RTS game is free for Humble subscribers

Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin got a lot of hate on release, but we think it's a cracker - and it's one of 8 free games in Humble Choice now.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin reviewed poorly and sold even worse when it dropped in November 2023 – but reputations can be deceiving. We think it’s a fabulous Warhammer RTS game in its way – and right now you can get its $75 Ultimate Edition free (or technically very, very cheaply) as part of March’s Humble Choice subscription.

Humble Choice costs $11.99 (£8.99) a month, for which it promises a monthly bundle of games to keep worth at least $289, plus a raft of member discounts on games in the Humble Store, occasional member perks, and other offers.

For March 2024, the free to keep games are:

  • Age of Sigmar Realms of Ruin Ultimate Edition
  • Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition
  • Saints Row (2022)
  • Citizen Sleeper
  • Black Skylands
  • Soulstice
  • Afterimage
  • Destroyer: The U-Boat Hunter

It’s an impressive-sounding offer, but the selection of games isn’t always going to float your boat. The clincher, though, is that you can always cancel or skip a month – so, if you’d like, you could jump in with a one month sub for $12, get Realms of Ruin and seven other new-ish PC games free, then jump right off again.

In our view, Realms of Ruin didn’t deserve the hate it got on release – it’s not a pure-bred old-school RTS game, but it wasn’t trying to be either. It’s a slower paced, Dawn of War style strategy battler that does a brilliant job of representing its chosen Age of Sigmar armies.

Honestly, though, if you’re a fan of Warhammer fantasy games and you haven’t given Realms of Ruin a try, this is an excellent time to scoop it up (alongside a bunch of other games) at a fraction of the price. It’s worth far more than $12, so we consider this an absolute steal.
