F2P MMO Vindictus deploys Australian servers a week ago, doesn’t tell anybody

Vindictus

By on November 22, 2012 at 8:07 pm

I’ve looked into playing Vindictus in the past, only to be frustrated by geoblocking that made sure Australians had to stay out (unless they could be bothered setting up VPNs). Well, stay out no longer: the F2P MMO by Nexon has now, as of a week ago, deployed dedicated Australian servers, accessible only to Australians.

In an unusual move, the company opted to celebrate the release by telling nobody at all, least of all anybody in Australia, who would understandably be the most interested in the news.

If you’re interested in trying it out, we recently added the full Vindictus client (v1.66) to our file library, where you can download it and save yourself nearly 4 GB of quota. Enjoy!

was wondering why there was no one on..

Great game.. Highly recommend it.
Don’t go in expecting an MMO. The only thing I didn’t like was Nexons really silly “Rent” system for costumes. sure you can get them for free if you want (but the process to do that is annoying). The customization doesn’t matter anyway, it exists purely for fap purposes.

But still great game. Glad to see its finally AU servers.

 

Also.. boob physics.. that is all

 

Games homepage doesnt even load properly ? Altho I know you shouldnt judge server admin’s or game developers by the quality of the web developers their finance department hires… ;)
How does the actual game stack up to say a perfect world production ?

 

Ich bin downloading…

 

Maybe they didn’t tell anyone, because they know that it’s not ready for a lot of population yet..

Much like the crapola that is Planetside 2 at the moment..
