MapleStory 2 – CBT Preview: Stories, Apartments, and PvP!

Coming Soon

Hey guys! A few more previews have been posted by the MapleStory 2 GMs, which reveal some new information about the CBT (which is in 11 days!).

Adventurer Items Adventurer Skateboard Adventurer Sunglasses

Here’s what the special adventurer-only items look like. Adventurers are those who have (and will be) chosen to participate in the CBT. They’ll get these special items as well as being the first to get MapleStory 2 news and access to some special events.

A Little Griffin

So the first thing I’m gonna talk about is a short comic they released, the story of a little Griffin. It was so sad! Together with this, the GM said there would be a lot of hidden stories for monsters like this in the form of Story Books, which you will be able to collect as you play.


The next post was about housing. As you guys already know, MapleStory 2 features a very extensive housing system where you can buy your own land, build your house, and decorate both the inside and outside.

If you don’t have enough money however, or you just want to live with others, then you can check out some apartment buildings.

Chatting Together

Apartment buildings feature many rooms and allow you to interact with others while still having your private space.

Swimming Pool

Some apartment buildings even come with a swimming pool, so you can use your rubber ducky at home.

Diverse Housing

They received a lot of feedback about these from the Alpha testing and have made many improvements such as more public areas and more diverse building designs.

Let's Be Neighbours

Ask your friends to move in with you or make new friends with your neighbours~

Red Duel

The most recent posting is about MapleStory 2’s player versus player content! This first picture is from the Red Duel.

In the Red Duel, you’ll face someone else one-on-one so you can test their skills. Be the last one standing to win! 1, 2, 3, 4 wins… winning streaks are a ton of fun!

Tears of Blood Mine

Next up is the Bloody Tears Mine (hardcore name haha). In the Mine, you’ll have to fight everyone around you, it’s a free for all!

You can choose to beat down on your opponents, be fast and race around the battlefield, or even just hide in a corner, but the point of the game is to obtain the highest score!

To access Red Duel or Bloody Tears Mine, you have to be level 30 or higher.

Shadow World

Finally, a crack in distorted space-time leads to a dark world… the Shadow World! In the Shadow World, huge scary monsters with the power of the shadows exist. These monsters hold special gems and items which cannot be found in Maple World.

Of course to acquire these items, you’ll have to defeat those strong monsters… and maybe you should even be wary of other adventurers…?

      just to be fair, i hope it never comes to GMS or replaces it. if Nexon America replaces Maplestory for this. they will go dead on the first day, and lose alot more loyal players. this game looks crap and thanks to this new content coming to MS2. it just killed the reason why MS2 was being made.

        I highly doubt they’ll remove MapleStory.

          What john meant was the players from MS1 will go to MS2 and made the game even more dead

    I really hope those rumors of a world release are true, this looks hella cool.
    Also Max, do you know if by invite your friend to move in with you, if it involves actually moving in with you or just moving into your apartment building in a separate room?

    Are the apartments/land shared between your account or each character can have their own?

      i would agree with you on that. i hate the blocky look on the map and area. but shadow world looks interesting if it was done like Maplestory.
