Is your Steam library looking a little thin? Do you need some new PC games to play that might be worth playing? Good news… Square Enix wants to help.
Today, the publisher announced they have begun taking pre-orders for the “Spring 2017” edition of the Square Enix Surprise Box. The Spring 2017 Surprise Box retails for $9.99, but will include “over $80 worth” of content, and players who purchase the bundle will receive five PC games through Steam, five Square Enix Rewards Points, plus some form of exclusive promotional deal that is “too good to miss out on.”
As for which games players will receive, well, that remains a mystery. However, Square Enix claims they’ll be “exciting” titles. If you’d prefer to hold out on making your purchase until Square Enix announces the contents of the Spring 2017 Surprise Box, I’m sad to inform you that won’t be possible. Square Enix will officially announce the Spring 2017 Surprise Box contents on March 30, at 7:00 AM (Eastern Time), however, they’re closing pre-orders on March 29, at 7:00 AM (Eastern Time). So if you want to take the gamble, be sure to do so before it’s too late.
As with any blind purchase, there’s a chance that you’ll receive something that you don’t actually want. But for $9.99, there’s not much risk involved. So if you’re looking to replace your scheduled Spring cleaning with some Spring gaming, this might be a surprise worth getting excited for.
