Nexon has announced that the Age of Heroes update to its 2D side-scrolling MMO, MapleStory, will be deployed later this summer and that it will bring chaos to the game. The update will bring the Gate to the Future into MapleStory, a new zone packed with new mobs, quests and a brand new high level boss to battle.
Players will soon be able to party up and explore the Gate to the Future and its surrounding ruins, which contain mutated versions of low level monsters that may be familiar to veteran fans. These mutants however are much more powerful than their counterparts and will prove to be quite the challenge. Additionally, inside the new zone Dark Ereve is the Knight Stronghold, which is filled with Cygnus Knight enemies that have the same types of skills as the Cygnus Knight characters players can create. Players will be able to battle their way through the Henesys Ruins and the Knight Stronghold to investigate the corruption of Empress Cygnus and her knights, which will ultimately prove to be the most formidable challenge in the entire game.
