Nexon America Launches Complete Overhaul of MapleStory
Nexon America announces the launch of the Big Bang update in MapleStory, the largest update in the history of the game. Big Bang, set to roll out in three phases, has initiated the first update today, introducing a visually richer Maple World, simpler user interface, redesigned and rebalanced skills, an easier EXP curve, and two new worlds, one of which is the first world to be hosted on the east coast.
MapleStory is a 2-D, side-scrolling, massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) with real time gameplay that combines action and traditional RPG elements. Currently, players will be able to enjoy 13 unique character classes, hundreds of quests, and nearly endless character customization options.
“Big Bang is going to completely change the way players enjoy MapleStory,” says Crystin Cox, Nexon America’s MapleStory producer. “We’ve been listening to our players and this complete overhaul of the game will implement major changes based on their input, making the game more current and modern, allowing them to experience new adventures in a game they know and love.”
With this update, players will be able to jump into MapleStory as heroes with rebalanced and redesigned skills that can level up much faster than ever before. Monsters, quests, and zones have also been rebalanced accordingly, allowing new and returning players to discover adventure in a world filled with unique challenges.
MapleStory’s higher graphical resolution will allow players to experience a more visually alluring Maple World. Other changes include a complete user interface revamp, making Maple World simpler, neater and easier to navigate. In addition, MapleStory will be opening up two new worlds, with one suggested for east coast players.
MapleStory is now available to download and play for free at the official website.
