NOTE: Please report any problems on our forums! See Note #2 below. Vendetta Online is a graphically intensive (350MB download), cross-platform MMORPG set in space, with a free trial and a recurring subscription. 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. A wide variety of gameplay styles are available, from 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. All Vendetta Online accounts play within the same game universe, from any device. This means your account also lets you seamlessly switch between your gaming desktop and your mobile device, including Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, Kindle Fire and even the OUYA game console. After the trial period expires, a subscription will let you continue playing (with a low cost "Lite" option for WinRT); Microsoft will not allow us to print the cost in this game description. NOTE #2: This is a graphically intense game that can sometimes expose driver or device problems that other apps will not. If you run into a problem, there is a good chance it is a driver bug and NOT actually the game itself. Nonetheless, we would greatly appreciate it if you would report any problems on the Bugs forum of our game website (vendetta-online.com), and we'll do whatever we can to work-around or resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We test the game across a wide variety of devices, but we simply do not have every possible combination of hardware. This Windows 8 and WinRT version includes some special benefits: - Single-Player "Free Play" mode: after completing the tutorial, a free-play sandbox sector becomes available, letting you perfect your flying technique and enjoy minigames while offline. This feature will be expanded in future patches, and will permanently be available to anyone with the game installed, regardless of whether they ever choose to subscribe. Enjoy! - "Demo" mode: an extensive demonstration of pre-recorded network play, showing off the graphics and content that become available in Vendetta Online. This is completely realtime, and uses the game engine, it is not a video. Additionally, be aware of the following: - Trial time of 8 hours of in-game time. Play an hour a day for 8 days, or 8 hours all at once. No strings attached, find out if the game is for you. System Requirements: - Dual-core device is recommended. - 700MB of free SD space recommended. The game uses about 350MB, but patches itself, so additional free space is advised. - 1GB of ram required. Anything less may experience problems, and is at your own risk. - We suggest installing over Wifi (for the large download), but playing the game should use relatively little bandwidth, and works well over most 3G networks. You are responsible for monitoring your own bandwidth usage on a carrier network. Caveats and Additional Information: - This is a large and complex game, a true PC-style MMO. Do not expect a "mobile" game experience. If you take a little time to read the tutorials, you will succeed at the game much more quickly. - The tablet and handset flight interfaces may take a little time to learn, although they are effective with some experience. The flight UI will be continually improved as we receive user feedback. Keyboard play can also be very effective. - We are a continually evolving game, often with patches released weekly. Our users are encouraged to help the game development process by posting to the Suggestions and Windows forums of our website.
