Brand new character jobs and a huge new map to explore as Nexon's popular and free to play MMORPG, MapleStory Europe, gets set for an action-packed 2008.
Thursday 10th January/... Hugely popular and free to play MMORPG, MapleStory Europe, is set to start 2008 with a bang, courtesy of an explosion of amazing new content. As part of its ongoing expansion of MapleStory Europe, world-leading online game development company NEXON Europe is pleased to announce the introduction of an extensive new play area based on the city of Singapore, as well as the highly anticipated launch of the game’s third-tier of job advancement.
Arriving on January 17th, MapleStory Europe’s Singapore map is a lavish new area for players to explore, filled with memorable new characters, exciting new quests to complete and fearsome new monsters to battle. Based on the breathtaking Southeast Asian city of the same name, MapleStory Europe’s version of Singapore features both a modern, urban business district as well as a more laid-back quayside to explore. To access the new map players must find Irene the Ticket Usher in Kerning City and buy a plane ticket from her. This sends players direct to MapleStory Europe’s Singapore airport, where all the latest MapleStory action begins, via a‘unique’ private jet flight that’s sure to raise a smile.
Following the addition of the Singapore map, February sees the launch of the third tier of job advancements in MapleStory Europe. Characters who have reached level 70 or beyond will now be able to choose a brand new job for their character based on their previous profession. There are ten new third tier jobs in all, including White Knight, Priest, Ranger and Chief Bandit, and over 65 new skills to master, ranging from devastating physical attacks such as Armour Crash, to powerful monster summoning spells.
“2008 promises to be a huge year for MapleStory Europe as we continue its rapid expansion,” said Calvin Yoo, Director of International Business Development at NEXON Europe.“We’re adding a huge amount of exciting and entertaining new content to the game with the introduction of the Singapore map, not to mention the launch of the third job tier in MapleStory Europe following the huge amount of demand we’ve had for it from high-level players. Committed and new players alike can be certain of many happy hours of MapleStory Europe fun now, throughout the rest 2008 and beyond.”
