Along with the traditional action MMORPG elements that the original PC version offers, players will be able to interact with their Facebook friends by inviting them to complete quests. When hired, friends’ avatars will appear alongside the player to help attack enemies through asynchronous play. Players can also send gifts to their Facebook friends allowing both parties to boost energy and level up their skills.
During a recent 11-day closed beta test, MapleStory Adventures almost immediately reached its beta cap of 30,000 players and amassed more than 40,000 “likes” on Facebook. During the short beta period, players participated in quests more than 862,000 times and picked up 14.2 million items like gold and other consumables.
“MapleStory Adventures represents one of Nexon’s top priorities of bringing our most popular games to the biggest audiences,” said Daniel Kim, CEO of Nexon America. “The game brings a whole new action RPG element to the Facebook space, a genre that hasn’t been widely explored on the social gaming platform.”
