How many times have you beaten Vindictus by now? No, wait. Better keep that to yourself. Either way, Vindictus diehards will soon have new reasons to return to Nexon's free-to-play action RPG, as February 16 marks the launch of Episode V "The Lost Artifact," Vindictus' largest update to date.
Back in December, Episode IV introduced two additional regions/dungeons, several new bosses and a level cap of 44. With Episode V, players have two more areas to play in, more mobs to kill (to be made into skanky outfits), six bonus chapters, and the Hero and Gauntlet modes. Oh, and the level cap is being raised to 60.
The two new regions are 'Hoarfrost Depths' and 'Hilder Forests,' crammed with Yetis, new Kobold variants, and other ugly creatures that serve no other purpose except as armor components. Screenshots of these new nasties are below, right after the 'Lost Artifact' preview video.
