Nexon announced today that MapleStory 2 will officially be launching on October 10th (founders pack users can begin playing Oct 1) with “pre-season” starting tomorrow on August 22 where players can create characters and reserve names. During pre-season users can also play a standalone version of Mushking Royale, the battle royale mode within MapleStory 2. The battle royale mode also includes some new changes including the introduction of squad mode (up to 4 players can team up) new items, and more.
The launch version of the game on October 10th will also feature the new Runeblade class, 12 new dungeons, an increased level cap of 60 (from 50), and much more. I’m personally looking forward to playing this one again. I had a lot of fun during beta. While I’m not super excited for the standalone version of Mushking Royale, i’ll probably play it a bit.
