MapleStory Europe unleashes its big bangers for Guy Fawkes Day Event

Guy Fawkes night may be wrapped up for another year, but there are plenty of big bangs still left to enjoy in NEXON Europe’s hugely popular and free to play MMORPG, MapleStory Europe. As part of its continuing series of special events based on major European cultural festivals, MapleStory Europe players are set to experience a fireworks festival like no other.

The three-week event, which runs from November 11th to December 2nd, puts a truly MapleStory twist on England’s famous Guy Fawkes celebrations. To take part in the completely free to participate event players must first join together with friends to form a gang, before hunting down seven secret letters hidden across the special Guy Fawkes map. Once these have been collected, players must work together to defeat a special, giant MapleStory Europe version of the infamous Guy Fawkes himself– only then can the party walk away with a multitude of festive firework spoils.

To help players get into the party mood, MapleStory Europe’s cash shop is offering a number of special Guy Fawkes inspired goodies that should ensure things go with a bang. Gunpowder fans can look out for a special accessory that sets off mini firework displays wherever your character goes, while those wishing to remember Guy Fawkes legacy in a more patriotic fashion can wear the new England flag face paint with pride.

MapleStory originally launched in South Korea in April 2003 and quickly went on to become one of the most successful online games of all time, with over 92 million registered accounts across the world. MapleStory Europe launched in May 2007 and counts more than 1.2 million registered players, offering gamers in Europe the chance to play MapleStory in four different languages– English, German, Spanish and Dutch.
