Vindictus is an Online Action RPG 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 in Asia. Publisher: Nexon Playerbase: Medium Type: F2P MMORPG Release Date: October 13, 2010 (NA)
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. Vindictus follows Nexon’s traditional free-to-play model. The game itself is free to download and play and charges no purchase price. The game contains a virtual item shop to purchase in-game items with Nexon’s virtual currency called NX (or Karma Koin) to enhance the player’s character’s appearance and abilities.
In Vindictus, “classes” and “characters” are one and the same. When beginning the game, players will have a choice to play as one of eleven characters, each of which has different combat skills and abilities. Players are free to alter certain aspects of their character’s appearance, but basic abilities and combat styles are set at character creation.
Vindictus is particularly combat-intensive when compared to many other Action MMORPGs. The combat is very fast-paced and rewarding; it uses more combo-based combat than timing of activate-able skills (or ‘Active’s as labeled in-game on the skill chart). The combat is very rewarding because of its dodge/counter/block or die mentality while in combat as opposed to the typical ‘out dps the boss’ mentality.
