Vindictus is the first physics-based multiplayer online action role-playing game that combines stunning visuals with high-speed combat. The storyline, inspired by Celtic mythology, is slowly uncovered as players progress in the game. Players join a mercenary unit called, â€œCrimson Bladesâ€ to battle Fomors, or monsters, in the hopes of reaching Erinn, the paradise promised by the goddess Morrighan. Vindictus uses a modified Source Engineâ„¢ to enable actions like throwing, shattering, binding with chains, piercing with spears, and more. As characters take more damage in the game, their armor starts to disintegrate and fall off. Redefining free-to-play games, Vindictus is a realistic next generation, physics-based, massively multiplayer role-playing game which offers brutal elegance to the PC gaming space. Vindictus is developed in Korea by Nexon's devCat Studios and published by Nexon America.
Action Gameplay Enabled by modified Source Engineâ„¢: Using Valve's Source Engineâ„¢, Vindictus features environments that are both destructible and interactive. Blood spurts from enemies, right where the player's blade sliced. Enemies fall, only to become corpses which can be hoisted and brandished as sadistic weapons. As walls crumble and whole buildings topple, new toys in the battlefield emerge. With Source Engine physics and destructible, interactive environments, Vindictus redefines free-to-play games.
Dynamic and Challenging Party Play: Defeating bosses and clearing dungeons in Vindictus requires cooperation and strategy. While one player uses weapons like chain whips to pin giant bosses in place, the other party members sneak behind to attack, or stand on the sidelines to cast healing spells to replenish everyone's strength. Parties of up to four can enter dungeons together, and dungeons vary for each Battle Quest, ensuring players will never get bored. Raid parties can grow to as many as eight.
Innovative Quest System: Vindictus offers engaging Story Quests that reveal the internal struggles of the non-player characters who inhabit the world of Vindictus. Battle Quests bring players to dungeons to complete mission objectives, bonus objectives, and challenging Oaths of Honor that provide extra points. Players use those points to upgrade their character with their choice of numerous skills and spells, which in turn unlock even more quests. Gear Crafting and Customization: Players start the game as one of three characters with basic articles of clothing. After the initial tutorial area, players can customize their character's appearance, including hairstyle, facial shape, skin tone and more. As they progress through quests, players could obtain rare drops and craft one of hundreds of equipment items. Next, players can personalize newly crafted gear with stats and color via the Enchant and Dye systems. In the end, characters will be clad in gear that's powerful, stylish, and unique.
