maplestory 2 closed beta

MapleStory 2 launched in Korea back in 2015, but now it’s finally time for the free-to-play MMO to make its way to Western shores. Taking the colourful world into a block-based third dimension, MapleStory 2 will begin a closed beta next month.

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.
