MapleStory is an online adventure game that centers around the “Maple World,” allowing players to combat monsters and develop their characters’ skills and abilities in an immense platform-inspired persistent world. Players, using charming characters, interact through chatting, trading, and playing mini-games while surrounded by vibrant backgrounds. Groups of players can unite in parties or guilds to socialize, hunt monsters, or embark on quests.
MapleStory’s innovative cash shop offers players the option to use real currency to pay for game enhancements, from cosmetic items such as haircuts and clothing, to virtual pets that can be trained to sit, stand, and breathe fire. This feature is purely optional and players can try out items prior to purchase in a virtual dressing room. Players create truly unique identities in MapleStory through avatar customizations.
The Christmas cheer, which starts on December 16th and runs until January 15th, invites players to explore an amazing, special Christmas town full of sparkling Yuletide trimmings and festive spirit. However, with the town short of one very important holiday staple - snow! - players will need to hunt down special Christmas items first if they want the snow to start falling and MapleStory Europe to have a traditional white Christmas.
And what’d Christmas be without gift giving? Players can present each other with items from the Cash Shop, and all players who send a gift item to a fellow player will receive a special Christmas present during the event period. Players also have the opportunity to participate at further events including Cash Shop Sale, 2X EXP and Drop Event, and many more.
