Judging by the response of the Vindictus early access beta announcement, a lot of folks were trying their darnedest to get in for some early access. There won't be any need to ask around anymore as the open beta phase will begin October 13.
Along with deeper customization options, a fishing skill, and guild tools, a new dungeon will open up that'll challenge players with new enemies and bosses. The best part about the new dungeon? You can throw the corpses of your enemies to lob at other baddies. An increased level cap boost to level 38 will ensure you hit as hard as you can.
Those of you already in the early access beta will be glad to know you won't be losing one bit of your progress because the characters will be carried over to the live launch later in 2010. Closed beta ends at 10 P.M. PST on October 5 so ask for invite soon if you're interested in getting a bit of play time before the one-week hiatus.
