Vendetta Online ships

Guild Software Inc. on Monday has announced the release of Vendetta Online, a massively multiplayer game set in outer space. Players take the role of starship pilots, navigating the reaches of outer space as they plot their own destiny -- becoming a merchant captain, for example, or a pirate, or a military defender. The game combines realtime action with a backdrop of role playing gameplay, in a background punctuated with storylines that continue on behind the scenes with the interaction of non-player characters.

The game ships today on hybrid CD-ROM for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. The retail version includes 30 days of free play; you can also purchase it online for $9.99 with a free trial available. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later; 1GHz or faster processor; 384MB RAM; OpenGL-compatible 3D graphics card with 32MB VRAM; 200MB hard drive space and 56K or faster Internet connection.
