Strategy First has announced plans to publish Guide Software’s
Vendetta Online this summer. It’s a massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in space that puts players in the cockpits of spaceships as they explore the universe. The open-ended game allows players to become freighter captains, pirates, military leaders — whatever you want, as you participate in a collaborative experience with thousands of other online players. It’s coming for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
The Vendetta Online universe is populated by three major player factions, each forming one arm of a balance of power. Non-Player Characters (NPCs) create situations involving economic struggle, political intrigue and conflict that influence the game, as well. Taking on new missions can increase and expand your skills and abilities and make new products and services available to you, also.
The developer indicates that cross-platform development is happening simultaneously, with a simultaneous multi-platform release expected when the game ships this summer. Specific system requirements were not available.
Vendetta Online is Guild Software’s first major software release. Strategy First is the company behind the publication of World War II Online, Cornered Rat Software’s massively multiplayer online game.
