Bring out the cake and party hats, ’cause Nexon’s free-to-play hack-and-slash MMO Vindictus is turning eight years old. To celebrate the occasion, the devs have released a thank-you video (which you can watch below) and are hosting a special contest that they’re calling the #WE_ARE_HEROES campaign. Until November 13th, Vindictus players are invited to share stories of their experiences in the game by emailing the devs. Then, on November 20th, the devs will choose one player from the submissions to receive “surprise awards” and maybe even a surprise visit from the dev team. In addition, all Vindictus players can now claim a unique in-game title and emblem commemorating the game’s eighth anniversary.
Moreover, until November 6th, players can take part in Vindictus’s Halloween festivities by helping to guide “Sad Halloween Souls into a Halloween magic Pouch which [they] can receive from the Strange Traveler in Colhen.” After players have guided the souls for 15 days, they can return to the Traveler to receive a unique title and a Special Halloween Magic Pouch containing “exclusive limited Halloween outfits.” Players can also earn Sad Halloween Soul coupons throughout the event, which can then be exchanged at the Coupon Shop for festive, Halloween-themed rewards. For the full details on Vindictus’s Halloween event, you can check out the official post on the game’s site.
