Vindictus (Korean: 마비노기 영웅전, Mabinogi Heroes) is a free-to-play hack and slash massive multiplayer online role-playing game created by devCAT, an internal studio of Korean free-to-play game publisher Nexon. Vindictus is a prequel to the popular MMORPG Mabinogi and is known as Mabinogi Heroes outside of North America and Europe. Vindictus takes place in the same setting used in Mabinogi, but is placed chronologically several hundred years prior to the first game during a period of war and strife. Nexon America, Nexon's North American division, announced the new name on March 12, 2010 at the Game Developers' Conference in San Francisco

Keys are still pouring out everywhere, but Nexon has announced over 1 million beta keys given out! Quite an accomplishment for just half a month early for a free MMORPG...

It is September the 15th(at least in this time-zone), Vindictus EAOB's servers are expected to go up soon, if you haven't gotten a key yet, there's still time, check my previous news post, or various MMORPG sites for places to obtain keys. Once you obtain a key, go here: (You will need a Nexon account)

A count-down event is happening on the Official Vindictus Wiki IRC channel(where you can also obtain Keys):

Lol, Jap...

It's Korean, plus, it's set in a very Western Medieval setting. It's also using Source.

It has Combat like Devil May Cry...but online, in a MMO setting. How could I not post this?:P

Its REGION locked. EU cannot play.

The EU version will be released much later.

Much. Much later.

Its nexon, so EU is likely to be overpriced, devoid of life and behind by about 20 patchs.

Except that it's a free game.

Yes, the Korean version is like 6 versions ahead of the NA version. This is how it is, as they've had it for awhile already.

Can't help it, it's a free game, they make their money based off the cash shop...they don't have the resources big companies do.
