Default Humble Origin Bundle launches with Mirror’s Edge, Crysis 2

The folks behind the Humble Bundle have announced the Humble Origin Bundle, a set of games for EA’s Origin platform for which customers can pay whatever price they choose. In contrast to the indie-oriented bundles, Origin is giving the entirety of its share to charity.

The Origin Bundle includes a handful of high-profile titles, including Mirror’s Edge, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Medal of Honor, Dead Space, Dead Space 3, and Burnout Paradise. Customers who pay more than the average also get a copy of Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3, plus “some DLC." Those who pay more than a penny get a copy of the soundtracks for Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3.

Per the Bundle custom, buyers can select the amount of money they want to pay. Typically, Bundles include a slider for the buyer to dictate how much money is directed to the contributing developers, but since Origin is forwarding all of its share to charity, there are only sliders for charity contributions and contributions toward Humble Bundle Inc.

All of the games are from the days of yore, but if there are any you missed out on, it’s a good opportunity to fill some holes in your collection. Humble Bundle also notes that most of the titles won’t tie buyers to the Origin platform: Steam codes will be provided alongside Origin codes for all of the games but Dead Space 3 and the bonus titles.

Humble Bundle predicts that the result will be an 85 percent contribution toward selected charities. The list of beneficiaries includes Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, and the Human Rights Campaign.
