Nexon America officially launches Vindictus, the first true physics-based action online game
Nexon America announces the launch of Vindictus, an action-packed massively multiplayer online game that is revolutionizing the free-to-play market. Collaborating with Valve, Nexon has created a breakthrough experience that truly brings physics alive in a brutally elegant world offering players epic adventures and grand challenges.
Vindictus is a physics-based action online role-playing game that combines stunning visuals with high-speed combat using Valve’s modified Source EngineTM. The modified Source Engine enables actions like throwing debris or enemy corpses, shattering walls, binding monsters with chains, dramatic hand-to-hand grappling, as well as affecting wear and tear on armor.
“With the launch of Vindictus, free-to-play gaming will never be the same,” said Daniel Kim, Nexon America’s CEO. “The high-quality content and amazing physics in Vindictus will make it hard for players to believe that this game is free. Vindictus is the leading example of Nexon’s efforts to forever change what players will expect from free-to-play games. More than that, Vindictus is just plain fun.”
At launch, Vindictus is unlocking a powerful female mage character, Evie. Evie and her magic skills join Lann, the male dual-sword wielding brawler, and Fiona, the female sword and shield bearing fighter. Highly anticipated by players, Evie can summon a golem, heal injured comrades and unleash fire bolts. Players will be able to access all three characters and the three available episodes at launch. Access tokens will also be refilled three times a week. Players who participated in the previous open beta phases will be able to transfer their characters, rank, loot and other earned elements during the official launch.
