Huge PC Sale Offers Flash Deals On Red Dead 2, XCOM: Chimera Squad, And More

Published

on

Great PC deals can be harder to come by than console versions of games, but if you know where to shop, you can find fantastic discounts on some of the best PC games around. Green Man Gaming is one of our go-to sites for finding deals on PC titles, from classics to new releases, and right now the storefront happens to be celebrating its 10th birthday in business. To mark the occasion, GMG is slashing prices on a bunch of games and kicked off a series of flash deals on some stellar titles, like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

The flash deals will be available for just 48 hours, so be sure to snag anything you want while it’s on sale. Plus, anyone who buys one of the featured flash deals will receive a free game via GMG’s “birthday wheel.” In addition, Green Man Gaming is giving away a bonus free game to anyone with an existing GMG account who has previously bought a game on the store–you’ll need to log in and head to the VIP section to get the free code. The first free game available on Monday will be Outbreak.

The first batch of flash deals includes steep discounts on every edition of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which is down to $15.12 for the base game and just $20.24 if you opt for the Ultimate Edition. With Assassin’s Creed Valhalla releasing this holiday season, here’s a great opportunity to dive back into the series or try it out for the first time.

Another historical open-world adventure is getting serious markdowns as well: Red Dead Redemption 2 is on sale for $44.15, while its normally $100 Ultimate Edition can be had for $55.19. It also just launched on Xbox Game Pass for console, but if you’re looking to play on PC, we haven’t seen Red Dead Redemption available for much cheaper since its PC version released late last year.

The brand-new XCOM: Chimera Squad just released April 24, and you can already grab it for over 50% off at GMG, which is offering it for just $8.80 in this round of flash deals. The game earned an 8/10 in our XCOM: Chimera Squad review for condensed combat that makes every choice big and meaningful, its diverse cast and abilities, and more.

These flash deals kicked off Sunday night and run until Tuesday evening at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET. As Green Man Gaming’s month-long birthday sale continues, there will be even more flash deals and free games to take advantage of, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the best flash deals available now below.

Minecraft trifft auf Bitcoin-Welt: Integration von Blockchain-Plug-In

Published

on

BitClave gehört zu den Unternehmen, die zur ICO-Boomphase Ende 2017 viele Millionen von Investoren einsammeln konnten. Nun kommt die Rechnung: Die US-Wertpapieraufsicht SEC fordert einen zweistelligen Millionenbetrag gegen das bereits operativ gescheiterte Krypto-Start-up zurück.

Die US-amerikanische Börsenaufsichtsbehörde (Securities and Exchange Commission, kurz SEC) hat gestern, am 28. Mai, Anklage gegen das Blockchain-Unternehmen BitClave PTE Ltd. mit Sitz in San Jose, Kalifornien, wegen der Durchführung eines nicht registrierten Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) angekündigt. BitClave erklärte sich bereit, die Gebühren durch die Rückzahlung der Erlöse aus dem Angebot und die Zahlung zusätzlicher finanzieller Erleichterungen zu begleichen. Die Gelder aus dem Entschädigungsfonds sollen den Investoren zugutekommen.

Die kurze Erfolgsgeschichte von BitClave

Das Krypto-Start-up BitClave dürfte sinnbildlich für viele Krypto-Start-ups stehen, die zur richtigen Zeit in 2017 viel Geld durch ein ICO einsammeln konnten, ohne es aber letztlich zu schaffen, einen kommerziell erfolgreichen Use Case von dem vielen Geld aufzubauen. Laut Anordnung der SEC hat BitClave von Juni bis November 2017 durch den Verkauf seiner Consumer Activity Tokens (CAT) an circa 9.500 Investoren, darunter auch Investoren in den USA, über 25 Millionen US-Dollar eingenommen.

Die Anordnung stellt fest, dass BitClave, wie in seinen Angebotsunterlagen erläutert, plante, die ICO-Einnahmen zur Entwicklung, Verwaltung und Vermarktung einer blockchainbasierten Suchplattform für gezielte Verbraucherwerbung zu verwenden. BitClave unterstrich seine Erwartung, dass die Token an Wert gewinnen würden, und unternahm Schritte, um die Token nach dem ICO für den Handel auf Krypto-Handelsplattformen verfügbar zu machen.

Die Regulierungs-Falle hat zugeschnappt

Damit hat BitClave nach US-Gesetz Token verkauft, die als Wertpapiere bei der SEC hätten registriert werden müssen. Viele ICOs hatten gehofft mit ihren Token nicht unter das Wertpapiergesetz zu fallen. Die SEC sieht das anders und stellt in ihrer Verfügung fest, dass BitClave es versäumt hat, ihre Angebote und Verkäufe von CAT, die Wertpapiere darstellten, zu registrieren. Man hat CAT inzwischen von vielen Krypto-Börsen entfernt. Auch ist BitClave derzeit dabei, seinen Betrieb einzustellen und plant nicht, die Plattform weiterzuentwickeln.

Ohne die Feststellungen der SEC zuzugeben oder zu dementieren, stimmte BitClave der Zahlung von 25.500.000 US-Dollar, Verzugszinsen in Höhe von 3.444.197 US-Dollar und einer Strafe von 400.000 US-Dollar zu.

Fortnite’s Rarest Skin Recon Expert Makes a Surprise Appearance

ultra rare recon expert fortnite skin

Fortnite’s ultra rare skin called Recon Expert has just been released in the item shop a few hours ago. Recon Expert is one of the most sought out skins in the game that only true OGs had prior to this day. Some users reported even paying hundreds of dollars for an account with that skins..

Well, those that paid high prices for accounts with that skin are definitely not happy right now that this skin is out for everybody to purchase for only 1,200 Vbucks.

Qries

You already know I had to get that skin the second I saw it.

Many Fortnite players still can’t believe that the skin is actually there, and what’s more is that the item shop refreshed at very random time as well.

Some are speculating that the item shop refreshing early must have been a bug, but with the release of such a sought out skin, was it just a coincidence after all?

Let me know what you guys think!

Daniel Abt fired from Audi’s Formula E team for using pro sim driver in virtual race

Published

on

Audi fired Daniel Abt from its Formula E racing team after learning he had a professional sim driver race for him during a virtual competition called the “Race at Home Challenge” held over the weekend.

The automaker said in a statement via Formula E that Abt had been suspended from Audi Sport “with immediate effect.” However, it appears the consequences are more serious and final. Abt said in a video message published Tuesday on YouTube that Audi had dropped him from the team.

“Today I was informed in a conversation with Audi that our ways will split from now on,” Abt said, according to a translation of the video message. “We won’t be racing together in Formula E anymore and the cooperation has ended. It is a pain which I have never felt in this way in my life.”

The 14-minute video was meant to explain the incident that occurred May 23 during the virtual competition, Abt said. He claims that it was all meant as a joke, which he intended to publicize after the race.

Abt tapped 18-year-old pro sim driver Lorenz Hoerzing to take his spot in the fifth round of Formula E’s online sim racing series. Unlike the real Formula E race series, this was meant to entertain fans and raise funds for UNICEF.

Hoerzing came in third in the race. Questions were raised almost immediately following the virtual event when Abt didn’t appear on the post-race interview.

Abt explained, via translation of the video, the plan.

“We had a conversation and the idea came up that it would be a funny move if a sim racer basically drove for me, to show the other, real drivers, what he is capable of and use the chance to drive against them,” Abt said. “We wanted to document it and create a funny story for the fans with it.”

Abt later added that it was never his intention to “get a result and keep quiet about it later on just to make me look better.”

Abt has also been fined €10,000, which will be sent to the charity.
