'Vindictus' Content Update Adds Holiday Cheer

by Rainier on Dec. 16, 2010 @ 12:38 p.m. PST

Vindictus is the first physics-based multiplayer online action role-playing game that combines stunning visuals with high-speed combat.

The town of Colhen has long been kept safe through the efforts of Tieve, the town’s oracle. Through her mystical ability to communicate with animals, Colhen dreams under the protection of her familiar, a giant spider. The day came when their trusted guardian seemed to go mad and started attacking the peaceful township of trusting people. The call goes out to a local group of mercenaries to help, a group that contains a young, untested recruit with a very special destiny.

Players find themselves thrust into this epic battle scenario upon launching Vindictus for the first time. The Prologue serves as an introduction to both the battle mechanics and the storyline of Vindictus. It’s an action-packed entrance into the game where players will get their first taste of brutal elegance.

A flurry of festive updates in Vindictus are now available for players to experience, including special holiday events, themed quests and even a new raid boss.

The citizens of Colhen face a vicious new threat, as Laghodessa, deadliest of spiders, battles players in ‘Nightmare at the Ruins.’ Fabulous treasures await the brave mercenaries who will band together to take down the fearsome eight-legged creature.

Elsewhere in the world, players are getting in the holiday spirit. Colhen has been decorated with festive snowmen and holiday flair, and a steady snowfall is blanketing the land with fluffy flakes.

Players are invited to stock up a daily supply of 11 free snowballs from the in-game Supply Depot, starting now through January 4, or purchase them in bulk. Snowballs make handy secondary weapons that can be used to pummel or even occasionally freeze enemies, or to have a good old-fashioned snowball fight with friends.

Unlike most visitors to Hoarfrost Hollow, the kobolds hate the holidays and all those who partake in the celebratory festivities. The creatures are so jealous of everybody’s holiday cheer that a glitch has turned their skin green. Players can eliminate the holiday-hating “Glitches” and collect puzzle pieces along the way to earn a set of reindeer antlers and a shiny red nose that (you could even say) glows.

In addition, a variety of hot holiday Inner Armor, Santa hats and body tattoos are now available for purchase. Many special deals, packages and promotions are also being offered.
