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
Vindictus EU Open Beta Kicks Off starting from September 28th!
Posted by Mkilbride on Sep 28th, 2011
Nexon Europe has announced that closed beta is over, pre-launch stage(open beta) opens from Sep.28th! The long wait for European players is finally over.
We also get some info about conversion process, beta resets and IP blocks about the forthcoming European release of Vindictus for you.
European players are curious about why it's taking so long to release the game in Europe. Although the conversion process is confidential, Nexon Europ promised that the content will catch up with the North American version very quickly. They are going to release content in less months and they are aiming to catch up with NA's version by next summer.
Players must be wondering whether European version of Vindictus will employ the IP block system limiting access to countries that are within the European boundary. Unfortunately, European players aren't able to play Vindictus with friends on an intercontinental scale.
In additon, Nexon Europe will reset the character data including EXP, equipment earned in European beta when Vindictus is released. They are going to localize the game into German, the voice will be localized as well. They don't have any firm plans on adding additional language at the moment.
