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

The Early Access Open Beta ends October 6th, and reopens as a fully open beta October 13th. Details inside.

Posted by on


In order to prepare for the Open Beta, we will be closing down the service during our scheduled maintenance on October 5 at 10:00pm (Pacific)/ 1:00am (Eastern). Ending Early Access a little sooner than expected will allow us to address issues that have arisen during testing. On behalf of the entire Vindictus team, we'd like to thank everyone who participated in the Vindictus Early Access Beta. We also appreciate your patience and good humor as we work out some of the technical difficulties we're currently experiencing. The good news is that we've learned a lot from the Early Access Beta, enough that we're ready to move on to the next step! Here's a look at some of what's coming in Open Beta:

AINLE
Players will enjoy new challenges, new rewards and some of the scariest mobs and bosses they've ever seen in our new town Ainle, accessible from the boat on dock three.

"Something bad has happened in Ainle. Citizens flee from the once idyllic town with grim faces and haunted eyes. The Royal Army has shut the town gates and quarantined the area. Did the Fomors finally attack a human settlement? Perhaps, but there are whispers that something more sinister happened. Whispers from terrified refugees speak of dark magics and arcane horrors. Ainle needs heroes before what happened there spreads toward Colhen."

CUSTOMIZATION
Players will enjoy hot new character customization options including a dye shop and a beauty shop with cool new hairstyles and facial features!

FISHING

Need a break from battle? Head over to the fishing dock and try to catch a big one! Fishing is a fun change of pace where players can take on new side quests without the danger of getting attacked by gnolls.

ITEM ENHANCEMENT
Strengthen your weapons and armor using Enhancement Stones!

GUILDS

Team up with your friends, or make new friends, by creating or joining a guild.

LEVEL CAP

The level cap will be raised from 26 to 38. You'll need that extra strength as the battle gets tougher!

...and more!
Whether you are a first-time player or someone who has been around since Closed Beta, we hope you'll enjoy the Open Beta and all of the new content!

It has to do with the games Peer 2 Peer system, it just generally doesn't work good with people too far away, hence no International version.

P2P systems don't work well in general. Aside from torrents of course.

Looks good. Engine choice seems very weird, source for a MMO ?. Is this free to play or will be a commercial game.

it'll be free to play seeing that Nexon is putting it out, so expect an item mall system in it.
