60 different turn-based games are on sale, with discounts between 10 to 75%!
Most interesting games for us here are probably “Imperiums: Greek Wars”, “Expeditions: Rome” and “Going Medieval”, since these are history themed, but a lot more interesting games can be found there!

2K games support hack, virus emails sent

By | September 23, 2022

In short: 2K reports that one of the vendors for their support was breached. The hackers sent out emails to people who had interactions with the 2K support, with a malicious link in it (or trojan attachment, depending on source). If you recently received an email from 2K which you did not expect and you clicked a link in it/downloaded an attachment, then you might be in trouble, and should do the general security precautions like changing your passwords.

For discussions about this please see here.
