Gameloft Confirm Order & Chaos Online Accounts Have Been Hacked

And as anyone who has ever played - or witnessed somebody in their close family play - one of these utterly absorbing and compelling adventure romps will tell you, your elf is all that you are.
He defines you. You define him.
So, to discover that a hacker over in North Carolina has not only assumed your incredibly personal identity, but is also carrying out quests on your 'behalf' isn't just galling. It's life threatening.
We'll keep you updated on the Order & Chaos Online breach as it unfolds. Trust us.
