Nexon Europe Unveils Vindictus at Gamescom

18th August 2010

Nexon Europe announced live from Gamescom in Cologne, Germany that Vindictus is the newest title to be added to the catalogue of free-to-play games published by Nexon in the European market. Following the announcement of the title at E3 in North America, the excitement builds as the game is being brought to Europe as well.

Sung Jin Kim, Director of Nexon Europe, comments:“we’re really excited about the launch of Vindictus in Europe after the great reception the game has received in the US. With the innovative features that it offers, we hope it will be a great success in the European market.”

Vindictus is the first physics-based action multiplayer online action role-playing game developed by devCat studios. Vindictus uses a modified Source Engine TM to enable interaction with the environment like shattering objects, hurling debris, binding enemies with chains, and piercing defenses with spears. As walls crumble and whole buildings topple, new weapons in the battlefield emerge. In the game, players will be able to engage in high-speed combat and experience the stunning visuals of the free-to-play game that adds brutal elegance to the PC gaming space.

Vindictus is loosely based on Celtic mythology and the storyline is slowly uncovered as players progress in the game. When first starting the game, all players will join a mercenary unit called‘Crimson Blades’ to battle monsters known as Fomors in the hope of reaching Erinn, the paradise promised by the goddess, Morrighan.

Vindictus is a realistic next generation, physics-based, action MMORPG, which introduces brutal elegance to the PC gaming space and redefines free-to-play games. To find out more about this exciting new game visit vindictus.nexoneu.com or become a Facebook fan at www.facebook.com/VindictusEurope.
