If you've been into the MMO scene for the past ten years, chances are you're familiar with a space combat game called Vendetta Online. And if you are, and you're a fan of the game, chances are you'll be pretty excited to hear that Polygon reports Vendetta Online is set to hit the iPad on April 17th.

I'm not an MMO man myself – the world of video games is big and I never really ventured into that neighborhood. But if a game that launched in 2002 has a strong enough user base to continually be active and updated for over a decade, it's got to be doing something right. Color me interested.

Vendetta Online will feature cross-platform play, and is already available on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. Developer Guild Software sounds like they aren't making many compromises for the iOS version, and hope it's a seamless transition for players to go back and forth between mobile and desktop versions.

The game sounds absolutely huge too, with more than 7000 different regions to explore and deep customization and character progression systems. Polygon also has a very nice hands-on preview of Vendetta Online from GDC last week which is worth checking out.

Vendetta Online will launch for 99¢ which will get you a month of free online play, and it will run you a $1 per month subscription to keep it going. I'll be curious to give it a try when it hits the App Store on April 17th.

    I wish this was coming for my iPhone. I font mind wrestling with the GUI if that's what it takes.

    In the video they show android support on a phone. Perhaps it will also be available on the Iphone?

    Take heart: I wouldn't have thought they'd make Little Inferno for the iPhone, and yet they did.

    I've never heard of this game until now, but that trailer got me super excited! It looks like a Galaxy on Fire MMO. Can't wait to check it out!

    I've been playing this game on and off since it first came out a decade ago. There's no other space combat game like it. They have absolutely nailed multiplayer twitch-based space dog fighting better than any other game. It's simply amazing. Awesome community, awesome game, awesome multiplayer space combat.

    Huge MMO fan and this looks like a must-buy. I play Infinite Black for my MMO space fix and hat's 2D and still addictive. Yet, I'm not a big fan of subscription gaming. I would much rather drop $5-$10 for the experience.
