MapleStory Europe Un-locks the first Chaos update!

Luxembourg, 5 th  December 2011 - Throwing the world of MapleStory into complete disarray, Nexon is bringing the most dramatic twist of the year to Europe with the release of Chaos, a combination of three super-powered updates, one of which sees Maplers taking on one another in combat for the very first time.

This is the biggest update since the Big Bang of the summer, and each of the three updates has something new to get excited about! New skills, systems, strengths, a crafting system and a host of features are all coming this winter, so with improved combat and everything to play for, there’s never been a better time to throw yourself into MapleStory’s chaotic reinvented world.

The first part of the update includes The Age of Artisans and The Age of Heroes. Artisans sees Maplers unleash their creative side for battle, crafting all-new weapons, potions, armor, accessories and more in an attempt to construct the ultimate battle arsenal. In addition, the opportunity arrives to truly define your character, with the chance to alter characteristics such as Willpower and Ambition, which can affect ability in your battles.

The Age of Heroes brings Hero class rebalancing, familiar monsters in a mutated form, and a whole host of new areas to explore. Maplers can gather in a party to visit the Knight Stronghold, the newest and toughest region any player has ever had to face.  In addition, old favorite classes such as Cygnus and Resistance make their dramatic comeback, with an awesome remixed skill set; other classic classes break their shackles, as Dual Blade, Aran and Evan classes all have their creative restrictions lifted.

There’s still a plethora of exciting new revelations that wait in Chaos, so stay tuned this winter to see what thrills are in store for the world of MapleStory.
