Vendetta Online is an in-depth, sci-fi MMORPG for Macintosh, Windows and Linux that allows the user to experience a whole galaxy to explore and boasts a wealth of unique features that provide an unparalleled level of immersion for the gamer. Built on Guild Software’s own proprietary real-time flight and combat engine WGAF, this MMO for Macintosh allows the player to engage other players in aerial combat or to exist peacefully as a trader. There are three playable nations in the game, the Itani Nation known for their advanced technology and manoeuvrable ships, the Serco Dominion known for their strong warrior fleets and the Union of Independent Territories (UIT) best known for their neutrality and keen profiteering skills. The game also has a unique content update system where an in-game group known as the PCC (Player Contribution Corps.) creates new content and posts in on a test server for feedback. Once the new content has been tested and tweaked to the point that the majority are happy with it, the mission gets added to the game.
If you play Vendetta Online for Mac you will quickly find it to be fairly different from the average space simulation. Aside from being massively multi-player, the player gets the choice of whether to be a space pirate, a mercenary, a trader or whatever other role they wish to be. This fantastic MMO for Mac has also been updated with the ability for several players to band together and can now all operate as crew on a single ship.
If you have ever wanted to pilot space craft, explore space and trade and fight amongst the stars, Vendetta Online may be the perfect MMORPG for you. Although not as large as some of the other MMO games for Mac, Vendetta Online does have a dedicated user base so players usually find it quite easy to meet up with others and play together. One of only a few available MMORPG for Mac set in space, Vendetta Online is a must have for fans of sci-fi games and space opera.
