It's been a while since we've heard from MapleStory
, but today the free-to-play side-scroller from Nexon
has taken the wraps off its Chaos
summer update plans. The next two months will bring major content updates to Maple World courtesy of the Age of Heroes
patch that drops on June 29th. New quests, zones, and a new high-level boss are all on tap, as is a battle through the Henesys Ruins and the Knight Stronghold that Nexon's
press release describes as "the most formidable challenge in the entire game
The Age of Heroes update will also bring about a hero class re-balance, and restrictions for creating Dual Blade, Aran, and Evan classes will be lifted. Explorers, Cygnus, and Resistance classes are also being tweaked, and players will find them "more powerful than ever
" due to main skill enhancements.
Later in the summer, the Age of Artisans
update will unveil a new level-based crafting system, and the Age of Battle
will bring a PvP mode to MapleStory
. Head to the official site
for all the details.
