UPDATE 9/16/2010: We have run out of keys to distribute for the Vindictus Early Access Beta program. But don't panic! We have just contacted Nexon and it sounds like there’s a good chance that we will be able to receive more keys soon.

If you already have a beta key, you should have received an additional key to share with others. So in the meantime, we’ve set up a forum thread so that folks can share their keys with others interested in playing.

Thank you for your patience. We will update this article again as soon as we hear back from Nexon.

It’s easy to overlook quality free-to-play titles. That’s why we’re excited to give away free beta keys for Vindictus, the latest title from Nexon. We think you’ll like it. A lot.

Vindictus looks incredible for a free-to-play game, mixing hack-n-slashy combos with Diablo-esque dungeon diving. That’s partly why GamesRadar gave Nexon America our award for the ‘Best Booth We Didn’t Expect’ at E3 2010. But enough talk. Scroll on down, get yourself a beta key, and try it out for yourself.
