EA has updated the Humble Origin Bundle by adding two more games in the "pay above the average" section. Paying over the average, which currently sits at $4.84 (Rs 311 approx), will get you Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising and the original god game Populous along with Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 Starter Pack.
Other than this, the bundle features some of EA's best selling games, including Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror's Edge and Medal of Honor.

The bundle has been highly successful and is well on its way to becoming the most successful Humble Bundle yet. At the time of publishing, the bundle sits on a neat pile of $8.4 million. The bundle still has 5 more days left to go, so the number will undoubtedly climb even higher. The total number of purchases so far has been 1.7 million. The top contributor to the bundle so far has been PrivetizKemerov, who has paid $5,000 for it.
Notably, EA won’t be getting any of the cut from the sales of the bundle. All the money will be split between the Humble Bundle crew and some charities, including the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, San Francisco AIDS foundation, American Cancer Society and the American Red Cross. As is usual for the bundle, the buyers decide how much of the money goes where.
While buyers will get the Origin codes for all of these games, for some of them, buyers will also get the Steam codes. The games with Steam codes include Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror’s Edge, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising and Medal of Honor.
