[VINEU] Vindictus Europe Set for Q4 2011 Launch
Vindictus, one of the most anticipated free-to-play experiences ever, is set to launch in Europe in Q4 of 2011. Vindictus is the world’s first physics-based MMORPG which combines stunning visuals with high-speed combat, bringing a brutal elegance to the PC gaming space. Using a modified Source Engine to enable interaction with the environment, players will be able to throw and shatter objects, hurl debris, bind enemies with chains, and pierce defenses with spears.
If you didn’t already know, Vindictus Europe was originally expected to be launched in Q4 of 2010 or Q1 of 2011.
“First of all, we’d like to apologise for the delay of the European launch of Vindictus. We know players in Europe were eager and excited to get their hands on Vindictus as soon as possible and we are glad that we are back on track now for a Q4 release”, says SungJin Kim, CEO of Nexon Europe. “We are preparing the roll-out in the European territory right now and will localise the game to at least one more language until launch. Vindictus is already a huge success for us in North America and was very well received by the gaming community. We hope players all over Europe will enjoy the game just as much.”
Nexon will address the European launch of Vindictus at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next week and Gamescom in August, unveiling new content and being on hand at Nexon’s E3 booth to address any European media queries. Nexon Europe is planning to have a significant presence at Europe’s largest gaming event Gamescom, which takes place in Cologne, Germany from August 17th-21st, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
