The only catch – it’s available this weekend only, until Monday, May 11.

The bundle focuses on most of Square Enix’s published games from the last two decades that aren’t RPGs (Square’s previous promotional bundle included nothing but RPGs).

The Square Enix Eidos Anthology includes the following games:

  1. Rise of the Tomb Raider

  2. Just Cause 3

  3. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

  4. Life is Strange: Complete Season

  5. Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

  50. Omikron: The Nomad Soul

  51. Goetia

  52. Hitman GO: Definitive Edition

  53. Lara Croft GO

  54. The Turing Test

That’s a lot of games! It includes some older classic like the Diablo-like Dungeon Siege series, and real-time strategy game Supreme Commander 2, as well as some big semi-recent releases like Rise of the Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Even better: all the revenue generated from this bundle will go to charity organizations and food banks throughout Europe and North America.

The Square Enix Eidos Anthology is available only on PC (Steam) and ends May 11.
