Nexon announced earlier this week during their premiere event at NOVO Lounge, Los Angeles, California, that MapleStory 2 will be launching globally (with the exception of the regions Nexon has blocked) on October 10th, 2018. The official launch brings with it new classes, new dungeons, new events, and an increased level cap. During the event, attendees were given the ability to play the game ahead of everyone else – while the rest of the playerbase is stuck playing through the Mushking Royale Pre-Season that has been running since the 22nd of August until October 1st. This event, while serving as a unique way to hype up the game also allows players to pre-create their character and reserve their in-game names. Ahead of the official release, Nexon and MapleStory 2 have offered players the ability to opt in to purchasing Founder’s Packs for the game. Each pack offers various unique items, merets, name reservation, a premium membership offering bonus XP and Mesos and other status effects, along with a head start. So if you haven’t already – you might want to jump in and secure yourself a Founder’s Pack to jump in before everyone else and gain access to all these goodies!
