Opening of the Com2uS Store with Summoners War merchandise

Didn't spend all your money during the holidays? Don't worry, if you still have a few euros left during the crisis, you'll finally be able to buy Summoners War goodies thanks to the official launch of the Com2Us Store. Even if the figurines seem to be of good quality and the accessories are appealing, at JeuMobi, we have a hard time with the communication strategies of the Korean developer and publisher.

For the big launch of its store, Com2Us offers you a super temporary discount of -30%! ... on shipping costs. But beware, you will still get a little sticker if you are part of the first 1,000 customers. When you see how much money people have put into Summoners War over the past 10 years, you can't help but be disappointed by the lack of special efforts for the game's community.

Static Shift Racing release

If you too grew up with the Need For Speed Underground games, here is a release that might interest you. Static Shift Racing is an open-world racing game that focuses on vehicle customization.
