When MapleStory 2 launches on October 10th, players will have a new class and a new zone to check out. The Runeblade class offers players a way to be both a powerful melee character with strong weapon runes to enhance combat. Players can trot out that new Runeblade on Karkar Island, "a gorgeous resort island" that, despite its bucolic setting, is infested with "swarms of insects, undead monstrosities, vile devils and ... belligerent gaming consoles".
Other special activities for launch include:
- sales and events with items such as the Style Crate, a "vast selection of cosmetic items ranging from clothing to wings to jewelry to weapon skins"
- Mapleopoly - a limited time event where players can spend Maple Coins to earn "consumable items or toys"
Players can register up to October 8th to earn a Rustic Mushcabin Name Tag badge, the Ducky Rickshaw mount and the Roosting Seagull hat.
Check out the details on the MapleStory 2 site.
