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 biggest update in the history of MapleStory will take place on Dec. 7, allowing all North American players to experience a completely remastered adventure. Unlike any other update before, everything in the game has changed. 

With this update, players will be able to step out into the Maple World as heroes that can level up much faster than ever before.  Skills and monsters have also been rebalanced accordingly, allowing players to rediscover the game with focused skills and familiar monsters.

In addition, players will enjoy a higher graphical resolution, allowing them to experience a visually richer Maple World.  Other changes include a complete user interface revamp, making Maple World simpler, neater and easier to navigate.
