Vendetta Online overview

Vendetta Online is a massively multiplayer game that permits thousands of players to interact as the pilots of spaceships in a vast universe. Users may build their characters in any direction they desire, becoming rich captains of industry, military heroes, or outlaws. A fast-paced, realtime "twitch" style combat model gives intense action, coupled with the backdrop of RPG gameplay in a massive online galaxy. Three major player factions form a delicate balance of power, with several NPC sub-factions creating situations of economic struggle, political intrigue and conflict. The completely persistent universe and detailed storyline add to the depth of immersion, resulting in a unique online experience.

What’s new in version 1.8.614

Updated on Sep 19 2022

  • Four new custom missions available in different Major Nation stations.
  • Added an option in the Ship Buyback menu to prefer addons already in local storage, rather than buying them. If the addon is not in storage, it will be purchased.
  • Added a 60 second tractor-beam cooldown for crates that you jettison. This means, for 60 seconds after a given crate is jettisoned from your ship, it will not be picked up by your ship's tractor-beam.
  • Implemented an all-new channel 100 Discord relay, from scratch, which is now operated and maintained directly by the developers. Please report any issues on Bugs.

I have been playing this game for a year and still enjoy it. It requires patience and the passion to explore. The one weak area of the game is the trading system, which needs an overhaul. Beyond that, it is a great game. One of the best aspects of the game is the player base which is very supportive of the new players. The game is still very challenging and interesting. I really like it. I am always a fan of iOS RPG Games.

Still in game after 5 years of play. Haven't seen anyone mention the low level membership available for $1/month. It is limited to level 3 or 4, but you can play at that level as long as you want. Good way to get into the game and see if you like it. If you try VO be sure to look at the vo-wiki.com, it has information on all the ships, weapons, etc. that will be very helpful. Also read/print the appendix to the manual (on VO website) and lists the commands you can use in the chat line and console. If you have a problem or question ASK, even the pirates will usually help newbs who ask. Look for an Emergency Mechanical Services (EMS) ship/player for a gift of some goodies that will jump start you into the game.

Back in the old days, I used to play games like Elite, Sentinel Worlds, and Space Rogue. They were excellent games — particularly Space Rogue — and mixed the best parts of role playing along with space-based combat or spaceflight simulation to make for some really excellent gameplay. I remember thinking, at the time, how awesome it would be if the game were somehow networked, so that the people that I was interacting with, or trying to blow up, were real, actual people, rather than computer-controlled drones. Vendetta feels a lot like what Space Rogue or Elite would feel like, networked. It has a good role playing factor to it, and mixes both computer-controlled NPC characters with actual, real-life, people. The in-game universe is pretty vast, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. It’s good because you get a lot of variation in what you can do, a lot of places that you can go. But there currently aren’t too many users, and the vastness of the universe means that the few people that are around are generally spread pretty thinly. I can go for hours without seeing more than one or two people. And a lot of the people that are on, aren’t interested in the role-playing aspect of the game, and are just there to blow each other up. Speaking of blowing each other up, by far the biggest pastime in the game is piracy. If there are ten users active, you can bet that at least seven of them are pirates. It’s generally pretty easy to avoid them, though, and either way, the game doesn’t penalize you for getting blown up as much as other games do. Getting money in-game is ridiculously easy, so it’s really no trouble at all to re-ship and re-arm after being destroyed a few times. It is also one of the few games that does not rely on experience points to get you anywhere. While they are needed to purchase certain weapons, ships, and to take part in some missions, for the most part a good pilot with a weak ship can easily outfight a weak pilot with a strong ship. That’s what really attracted me to the game, was the flight dynamics and the ability to get “good” at it without having to slog through endless missions in a futile attempt to accumulate exp. All in all, I think the game is definitely worth a look, though whether it’s worth it to pay for the subscription is up to each individual user.

Perspective on me, 73 years old, on VO for for over two years. This is the only game I have played regularly for more that a couple of months. VO is DEEP. I takes a couple of weeks to begin to see all the possibilities, and it does take a while to get into the good ships and missions. If you try the 8hr free trial, as soon as you get out of the training sector holler for EMS, (Emergency Mechanical Services) and get a newbie starter kit of equipment. Also immediately look for a mentor to help you get thru the first 3 license levels. Read the appendix to the manual and look at VO-wicki for tons of information of use in the game.

VENDETTA ONLINE ARTICLE Vendetta has an 8 hour trial. So I tried the game. To get started in the game, a person needs to take the tutorials. Tutorials are training missions And let me tell you, they wrote a book of junk you have to read to take the training mission. Nobody cares much about all the politics. It is too overwhelming. All you care about, in the training tutorials, is the last paragraph of the that mission. And, I can tell by the number of newbies that log on and then leave, never to be seen again, that the tutorials are terrible. Lets talk mining. Mining for minerals is big in the beginning of the game, to gain money and levels. But, it takes a long, long, boring time. Sure, the first day is cool. It is all new. Then, it is boring, boring, boring, as you move from rock to rock, waiting for the cargo bay to fill up. Lets get into travel in the game. Think about this. To go from one side of your nation, to the other, takes over 12 minutes of holding down the tab key, as you go from one jump to another, and seeing very few other ships. Sure, you can find a plug-in to hold the tab key down (i, nfinite turbo) but it is very tricky to use. Travel is so bad, that you might go to sleep if you have to take a convoy 1/2 way around the universe, taking over 20 minutes. To gain better weapons and ships, and gain experience, you have to kill a lot of small bots. We are talking, a lot. There are actually a bit of fun, at first, but then they soon get boring. Now, lets get into pirates. There is nothing worse then doing all this freaking boring mining, then boring travel, as your missions, just to have some pirate, with attitude, find you, demand payment … or blow you up. If you run from the pirate and get blown up (most do), then you have to do all that boring stuff, again. Oh, the pirate ship and their weapons are WAY better then yours, plus their fighting techniques are better. You don't have a prayer, no matter what they say. And I have witnessed pirates killing in pirate space, as well as Nation space. In the end, the only thing not too boring in this game is pirating and pvp combat in an area called Sedina 8. It is mostly people that have played a long time, have a nasty attitude, and are good at fighting. The game has some nice graphics, but in reality, is the same thing ... everywhere. These includes rocks, space stations, and a lot of empty space. Sure, there are some things you can do, and plan, but it takes hours and hours of boring time. They also need some cooler ships. I am fighting with a space ship called a Vulture, that has, wings, like a fighter jet. Can’t I have a space ship? If I wanted to fly a fighter jet space, I would have gotten a different game. The best thing about this program is that the game was very reliable, and ran on a lot of platforms. This means you can be bored, a whole lot of places. Just go there an try it for free. Don’t fall asleep while playing.

There are not many good space combat sim MMO's available these days. It is even more rare to find one that will run on a Mac. Vendetta Online is a space themed combat sim. It begins with very helpful tutorials that allow the player to pick up a few points. Each space station has an interface that contains unique missions. One can choose to undertake various missions involving mining or trade or combat or delivery... With the completion of certain missions new ships and weapons become available. To get from one galaxy to another one makes use of worm holes. The player is encouraged and rewarded for exploring the universe. A few of the things I find very attractive about Vendetta Online: the missions are diverse enough to keep a player busy and engaged. The learning curve is sufficiently gradual. It also allows for solitary as well as team player engagement. I am more interested in grinding alone and am turned off when forced to team up with others I don't know. So far I have not been pushed in that direction, which is a plus. There are few negatives to this game, and as far as I can see they are minor. Graphically, the game is not bad. But it is also nothing to write home about, either. Leveling up to access better weapons does seem a bit slow. The music can be monotonous after a while; but that is easily remedied by hitting the mute button. Vendetta Online requires a $9.00/month subscription fee. One can debate the relative pros and cons of monthly fees until the end of time. If you are a die hard space explorer who enjoyed playing games like Freelancer you may want to give Vendetta Online a shot. Each new player gets the first 30 days free.

This game has something for almost everyone. I think I may be the oldest player in the game at 72, and I have trained people in their mid-teens. There is player vs player real time combat for those who want it. There is nation warfare. There is trading, escorting trade missions and defending them against player and bot attacks. There is mining of asteroids, which some find totally immersive, and a great moneymaker. My personal favorite aspect is the continuing struggle against the rogue robotic mining machines which are competing with us/humans for resources to survive in space. When I show newbs the Leviathan, the big daddy bot, they are always impressed and excited. I have been playing this game for a year and still enjoy it. One of the best aspects of the game is the player base which is very supportive of new players. All one has to do to get help is ask.

Ok, fundamental problems with this game. First, the good thing. The fast-action twitch aspect works well for combat, the control system is well implemented. However, in the long term the ONLY way to upgrade your ship and status is a system so poor it beggers belief. Shoot drones. In fact, shoot countless thousands of drones over many many months. Until you have done this, the established unemployed obsessives hang around warp points, blowing you up and making you backtrack huge distances and loose the XP you have built up. It is not policed to stop this. There is no in-game mechanism to prevent it or protect you. Other, older games, had missions that added GREATLY to your XP, and for good reason, if you can assasinate some military big-noise, you deserve the XP. Not in Vendetta. In other, older games, if you mine like crazy for 2 months, you make so much money you can buy a cap-ship, or any fast capable fighter with oodles of deadly weapons. Just like the real world, if you have enough money, you can buy what you like. Not in Vendetta. Essentially, you have to spend all day, every day for the next six months making endless trips to asteroid fields to shoot varying classes of droid. Here's the joke, once you HAVE done this, there is nowhere or nothing to do, you end up sitting outside jump points making stupid yarrr comments and shooting noobs. I tried this game with a grim determination for 6 months. Futile, pointless and soul destroying. At least other, more popular, online space sims have greater depth and give a noob a chance. If you have a life, it's not for you. Until the devs wake up and change the FUNDAMENTAL structure of the game it will remain an also-ran in the online pantheon.

I've been playing Vendetta Online for about half a year now and plan to continue to subscribe for the foreseeable future. While not perfect with some key features still in development, I find VO captures the essence of space combat very well - even when using my joystick and after from many years of playing flight sims, VO transcends the "planes in space" feeling with which most other games in the space combat genre leave me; VO has done this by finding a good balance twixt realism and gameplay with their oddly tweaked 3-D physics model. Other pluses to the game are: The client is native has been very stable for me even though I don't have the most up to date Mac. The network performance is rock solid making the PvP fun and satisfying. The community is generally supportive and is directly engaged in making VO a better game with publicly available customizations via skins, plugins, and even missions. Built-in voice chat via TeamSpeak, too. Comparisons to the Escape Velocity series are valid as are those to earlier games in the genre like Elite and Freelancer with the caveat that VO is primarily a multi-player FPS in space with RPG trappings. However, future plans indicate that VO is evolving toward a more complex and dynamic economy which will provide for a richer and more interesting backdrop to the PvP action with more traditional RPG elements like trading, crafting, and mining getting more attention. (As for EvE, I find that the differences in gameplay completely outweigh the similarities which are, after all, common to most games in the same genre.) Overall, a fun game if you're looking for a space-based MMO with solid PvP.

Amazing game, great userbase, awesome devs, but as I know people don't pay for the company, I'll elaborate on the game. It is the intense twitch-based combat that keeps me so hopelessly addicted to VO. The adrenaline, skill, and fun are unparalleled in any other game I've played. From duels and single combat to epic, large-scale engagements, the combat system is beautiful in its simplicity, (real physics and simple projectile motion apply to most aspects), yet endlessly exciting in its intricacies. I will let other players elaborate on other aspects of the game, or you can try the free, no-strings-attached 8-hour GAME-PLAY, not real-time, trial of the game. Also, the developers are extremely committed, resulting in one of the most stable and responsive games around. They are constantly adding to it, and often take player-suggestions into account in deciding their long-term agenda for the game. In fact, players may even join the PCC, (Player Contribution Corps), and create missions and other content for the game.

If you're feeling interested, try it and see how you like it. I did and got hooked. Great atmosphere, tight and friendly community, extensive player/developer interaction and constant updates makes for an impressive game.

While I really like and enjoy this type of "space" game. Sometimes I just want to have a game to fly around and shoot down other spaceships. Not having to deal with all the politics of joining a group, clan, race, etc. is all I want to do sometimes. And buy improvements/enhancements for my ship... Is there any type of "space" flying game like this anymore? Anything that will run on a 24" aluminum Imac? Thanks!

4 people develop and run this game. Guild developers are not yet prepared for a proper launch, they are waiting for a more complete build. But their MMOFPS has absolutely no rough edges. The engine is rock solid, it runs on multiple platforms (the Mac version supports OpenGL multi-threading on multi-core CPUs and the framerate is incredibly steady on all OSes). Marvellous community. Give it a try.
