[GMS 5th Anniversary] Content Update

So anniversary day is only 13 more days away, and it’s pretty much certain that the v85 patch will be on May 5. Nexon’s given us a (hopefully small) preview of what content and events we’ll be seeing in the upcoming update.

Unless those “More information coming soon!” mean A LOT more information is coming soon, then this is the most fail excuse for an anniversary I’ve ever seen. It’s our 5th for Nexon’s sake, give us something good.

[VIN] Vindictus Teaser Site Launched!

The teaser site for Nexon America’s next game and one of the most anticipated MMOs for 2010 has been launched.

The new teaser site features an improved game trailer, game media, and summaries of Game Info, the game Story and the game Characters. Looks like Vindictus will follow Mabinogi Heroes and only be launched Lann and Fiona, then release Evy later on.

Also, a “BlockParty” logo has been added to the beginning of the trailer. I’m assuming that BlockParty is being launched this summer.

The teaser website can be viewed at vindictus.nexon.net.
