It seems like a no-brainer to bring the sequel to the popular MapleStory westward. And yet we’ve been waiting for a while now to see any movement on the MapleStory 2 front. The good news? Movement spotted.
Nexon America opened up the official MapleStory 2 website this past week and is now taking signups for the MMO’s beta test. There are some giveaways and promotions in the meantime, and when May 9th hits, the western closed beta will begin. Nexon isn’t making this title global, however, so be sure to check to see if your country or region is included.
MapleStory 2 is a huge step up from its predecessor both in visuals and content. It offers pretty adorable 3-D cubed worlds, interesting classes, and player housing. “MapleStory 2 features powerful tools to let all of our players truly customize their own corner of Maple World, from character customization, designing special outfits, building your own dream house and so much more,” Nexon said.
As this year’s GDC coverage is winding down, I am finally coming to the topic I saved for last: community. MMOs are more than just multiplayer. We attract the “alone together” people more than the “FPS hero” crowd in our comments section for a reason; MMOs are virtual worlds. They’re a digital space inhabited by other people. We may not talk to them, but we watch and listen. Maybe we engage, maybe we group, maybe we guild. We do stuff in a shared environment because we think, or hope, we’re part of a larger system.
And this is why we need to talk about cross-platform communities and the strength of in-game, embedded community tools. As social media rises and mobile crashes against our PC fortress, increased console cross-play should be a reminder that we’re all gamers, and (some) developers are finally getting that.
I didn’t play it, but I can’t be the only one who thought of the original tabletop when Funcom announced Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. Well, if you haven’t heard yet, surprise! It’s based on the same IP.
However, I have some bad news, MMO fans: Apparently while there was a plan for Mutant Year Zero to have a multiplayer option, it got the axe. Good news, though: Developer and “First Lady” from The Bearded Ladies (the developers behind the game) David Skarin said nothing is stopping them from adding it in after launch. Normally CGI trailers without gameplay make the press side of me roll my eyes, but I have to admit that, after seeing some actual gameplay, I’d probably enjoy some hands-on time with the title.
Early access post-apoc online shooter Survarium is having a good year: Not only is it working on its 0.52 update, which is set to update graphics and the weapons module system, but last fall it pumped out something brand-new to the game: PvE. Co-op mission Dangerous Knowledge is a story-based three-man team mission that explores
“a conflict between Black Market and The Renaissance Army, and also unveils the mystery about secret experiments which lead to creation of the Forest. Specifically for this mission developers created a new map with lots of both open and indoors locations. Developers tried to add an element of exploration into the game, and also let players interact with the world of Survarium.”
Want to check it out? Vostok Games has granted us a bunch of keys for to allow our readers to do just that. The codes each grant three “access keys” to play the new mission, one per account, whether your account is old or new.

Starting on March 27th and continuing through April 10th, you will be able to secure a free card pack every day for completing a daily quest. This will add up to 16 free packs in total if you’re diligent about doing them! The studio is also handing out three free packs to anyone who wins a match in this week’s Tavern Brawl in honor of StarCraft’s 20th anniversary.
Blizzard posted its full Witchwood card reveal schedule for 55 cards from the expansion. The reveals start on March 27th.
Nexon’s adorable and frankly underrated free-to-play sandbox Mabinogi is preparing to celebrate a decade of life come March 27th, and that means events galore – in fact, some have already begun, including the Festia anniversary zone and miniquests, the Cave of Trials challenge, and the Sneaky Developer quest.
Coming up later in the month are daily and weekly giveaways and handouts, the Festival Troublemakers Event. My favorites, however, are the Popularity Contest and the crafting quest known only as The Fattening. Don’t forget to grab your 10th anny gift box too!
The codes can be redeemed only once per account and expire at the end of 2020, and the mounts are bind-on-pickup. Critically, these codes are redeemable on PC only, so if you’re a console person, you can skip this one! The keys should work for all PC players except those located in China, Korea, Egypt, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
