Crossplatform sci-fi MMORPG Vendetta Online is now free-to-play on iOS

Vendetta Online has been around a long time and getting regular updates to boot, and until now, I would have said it’s playable on everything. Maybe not a toaster. But close. As it turns out, however, it wasn’t properly F2P on Apple mobile devices, an imperfection rectified today.

“We’re thrilled to make our long-awaited debut on iPhone,” Guild Software CEO John said in a press release this morning. The iOS version relaunches as a free-to-play title, alongside its crossplatforminess mates on Android, PC, Mac, Linux, and GearVR.

“Vendetta Online is a free, graphically intensive and cross-platform MMORPG set in space. Players take the role of spaceship pilots in a vast, persistent online galaxy. Trade between stations and build an empire, or pirate traders who dare to pursue routes through areas of lawless space. Fight other players, or cooperate with friends to push back the mysterious Hive. Mine ores and minerals, gather resources, and craft unusual items. Join the military of your nation, and participate in massive online battles (see the trailer). A wide variety of gameplay styles are available, from the the intensity of huge battles and realtime PvP, to the low-key enjoyment of quiet trading and mining in less dangerous areas of the galaxy. Play the style of game that suits you, or that suits your current mood. The availability of relatively casual and short-term goals allows for fun when only a little time is available to play.”

Anybody giving it a fresh whirl?

More or less, and it has pretty realistic space flight physics too. There’s an “easy” flight mode as well that makes it more like piloting an airplane.

I first played Vendetta Online about 15 years ago. It’s a fine game for what it is but the pace of development makes glaciers look blindingly fast.

It has an “OK” rating on Google Play. Though I’m personally not a big fan of space sim games with touch screen that simulates joystick controls.

It’s not a bad game, I played it for a bit. Controls can be finnicky (but that’s every mobile game ever), but definitely worth a few hours of playing around.
