There is a new MMO that has recently come out of beta that is pretty good and fun to play. The name of the game is Vindictus published by Nexon. Right now there are servers in Korea and North America with European servers to be added by the end of the year. If you want to check out the game for yourself you can head over to http://vindictus.nexon.net/ and download it for free.

The premise of the game is that you are a new recruit for the Crimson Blades and you have just made a name for yourself by saving the life of the local oracle from a rampaging giant spider. That is where your story starts. While the game is story driven it is mostly a hack and slash type of RGPMMO and is definitely geared toward the younger audiences. Why do I say it that way? When you are customizing your character you get to control just how big your female characters breasts are going to be. That right there says it all on what crowd they are going for.

Over all it is an enjoyable game but there are a few things that you should know. The game is graphically intensive, my rig exceeds their recommended specs and to play it comfortably I had to reduce my graphic setting for the game to almost the lowest setting. Another point to note is that when you are in a dungeon party the leader is actually hosting the connection so they will get to see everything smoothly but everyone else will not have optimal connection to do so. Solo on the dungeons you do not get lag but in a party get ready to port all over the map as you try to pick things up and fight the enemies that are attacking you.

As I said, this game came out of beta at the beginning of November 2010 so they are still tweaking things here and there but it is still enjoyable to play, just be patient. The game is also F2P so expect to be inundated with requests to pull out your credit card, but it is not needed to play. The game is free and will not be any kind of grind till you get into the higher levels.

If you want to check out the game for yourself you can head over to http://vindictus.nexon.net/ and download it for free and play for free today.
