Nexon has sent word that the first round of alpha testing for MapleStory 2 will kick off in Korea on September 17th. Simultaneous with the alpha's commencement, the team will be ready to show off significant portions of the game to the worldwide gaming community. The release date has yet to be determined.
MapleStory 2 is a new PC online full 3D MMORPG that has been in development since 2010. Set in an era prior to MapleStory, players can enjoy a completely new level of freedom in their experience.
The alpha test will allow players to join in game development as they select from different character classes and explore the rich landscape of mountains, oceans, valleys and cities. During the test, players will be able to customize their characters and engage in dynamic boss battles, in addition to creating user generated content such as their own unique clothing and houses.
