MapleStory 2 Launching on October 10th!


New Battle Royale Mode Pre-Season and Character Name Reservation
Starts Tomorrow

today announced that MapleStory
, an all-new MMORPG adventure set within the original
MapleStory Universe, will officially launch on October 10, 2018. Ahead
of global launch, Mushking Royale Pre-Season will open from August 22,
2018 until October 1, 2018, which will allow players to create
characters and reserve names before official launch.

Set in a colorful 3D block universe, MapleStory 2 is one of the
most creative and customizable MMORPGs available on the market today.
The game implements a robust set of character options, a brand new
progression and growth system, and world-building tools, redefining the
MMORPG genre by giving players the ability to customize everything. The
game has been in closed beta testing for the past three months.

Nexon America held the MapleStory 2 Premiere Event at the NOVO
Lounge in Downtown Los Angeles on August 21, 2018 and revealed contents
for launch as well as post-launch. Nexon also announced the Head Start
period, which will give players who purchased a Founder's Pack exclusive
access to the game starting October 1, 2018 until the launch.

The game will launch with a new class, Runeblade, 12 new dungeons, and
more contents. Also, the level cap will be increased from 50 to 60. MapleStory
already has planned Halloween and Thanksgiving events and ongoing
updates through the rest of the year to keep providing exciting contents
to players.

Starting tomorrow, Maplestory 2 is introducing Mushking Royale
Pre-Season, a standalone version of the game's Battle Royale mode where
Maplers can play until the official launch. Name reservations will be
available to all players for the official launch who come into Mushking
Royale Pre-Season and create a character.

There will be a number of changes to Mushking Royale since Closed
Beta 2 including:

  • Squad Mode: This new mode will team up to four players who can
    battle together
  • New Items: Sanctuary Flare will let players heal their squad,
    while barricades will allow Maplers to defend themselves by building
    brick walls to avoid being hit by enemies
  • Royale Stats: Will let players enjoy more competition by
    viewing their stats, leveling up and gaining rewards

The top Mushking Royale players from each region will receive Founder's
Packs, which include a wealth of Merets, exclusive items and access to
the game beginning October 1st. To join Mushking Royale, download MapleStory
