With only a couple of weeks to go before MapleStory 2 makes its big debut in the west, it is all hands on deck at Nexon. The studio’s cheerful devs have a lot to communicate about what’s coming with the MMO sequel’s release, starting with a FAQ that walks fans through the head start period that begins for founder’s pack owners on October 1st.
Speaking of the store, a producer’s blog on monetization covered what the game will and will not sell. Some of the big no-nos include statted gear and paying to revive on the spot. “We’re working really hard to make MapleStory 2 the right free-to-play game for most people,” Nexon said.
What will be sold in the shop includes cosmetics, convenience items, player-designed items, a Premium Club, and (of course) lockboxes, or “style crates.” Also, we totally want a bear mount where he stands on two legs and carries us in his fuzzy arms.
