The free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) MapleStory 2 will have a closed beta in the Americas, Europe, and Oceania territories next month. The beta will start on May 9.
MapleStory 2 has been out in a test form in South Korea, Nexon’s home country, since 2015. The original MapleStory came out for PC in 2003 and has attracted millions of players over its long life. While the original is a 2D game, MapleStory 2 features 3D environments.
After such a long life, the original MapleStory has a devoted fan base. That’s why making the sequel so different is smart. Fans who are invested in the original will still have a reason to stick with it, but the sequel is likely to attract their curiosity. In the best case scenario, players could be active on both games.
Aside from bringing “the magic of depth” to the Maple World, the sequel features a variety of classes built to take advantage of any combat style you like, whether that be with swords, daggers, bows, or wands. All those classes have a unique story detailing a rise from humble origins through your rise as one of the great heroes of the world.
Customization is key, with a wide variety of tools to build your corner of the world however you like. That means building your own home, customizing your character how you like, or getting all fashionista to make your own outfits.
If that all tickles your fancy, publishers Nexon are taking closed beta signups right now for players in the Americas, Europe, and Oceania. That closed beta begins on May 9. Meanwhile, it is important for you to have more Maplestory mesos.
