MapleStory 2 in 3D (included in-game screenshots)


Title: MapleStory Version 2 in 3D (3 Dimension)

Greetings all!

It has been years when MapleStory was first release in Korea. However, will Nexon just let MapleStory be like that? No! According to reports, Nexon planned to redefine MapleStory into a popular 3D game, titled MapleStory 2! The Beta is scheduled in 2008 at Korea.

MapleStory 2 – 3D is a new generation of MapleStory. The current MapleStory is in 2D, which do not allows players to look at maps in different directions. However, MapleStory 2 is going to be a splendid one.

Logo:
In MapleStory 2!, the new logo will be that the word MapleStory will be attached to 2 maple leaves, with a number “2″ featured on the leaves.

Characters
According to BasilMarket, there will be 6 playable jobs in this MapleStory 2! The four playable characters are Warrior, Magician, Bowman and Thief and we (or I) am still unsure of the remaining 2. In MapleStory 2, when you are creating your characters, the background will be modified from the old High Above Maple Tree background to your character. This means that you are allowed to view you character in bigger screen. Also, there will be introductions of each character for your to decide which character suites you the best! Also, switching characters will be easier now as with one click, your character are swap. The most exciting news is MapleStory 2! will feature the new 5th job.

Maps/Continents
All the maps and continents in MapleStory will be available in MapleStory 2! However, there will be new continents in MapleStory 2! for players to explore. Also, some maps may require a certain job to enter.

Game Balance
Players will be free to distribute attribute points despite of the large number of jobs. When they create their character, they will have to throw the dice to decide his initial attribute points. And the character’s level and attributes will decide whether the player can change his job and which job he can advance to.

Quests:
All quests in MapleStory will be available in MapleStory 2!. However, MapleStory 2! will be featuring the new Storyline Quest and Party Quest (Not the Kerning, Ludi and Orbis party quest. But rather, a normal quest that requires party). Storyline quests refer to quests based on a story, thus, more challenge will be implied into completing a quest. Party Quests refer to quests that requires a party, and the quest will automatically be forfeited upon disbanding the party.

    I don’t think its MapleStory related since I know EVERY creature in the game (even some still in concept) and these creatures aren’t MapleStory. Besides, they’re working on the legends plot so it would be a waste. By the way, the legends are Aran, Evan, Ian, Ochan, and Utan and we get to battle the Black Mage after they are all released. Also there’s a PvP (player vs player) arena that GlobalMS should be expecting mid or late 2010. But we have to wait for its release in MapleSEA. I’m not releasing any more spoilers since it won’t be much fun knowing what’s planned. xD

    No, cannot be transfer old account to this MS2. Have to create a new User Account.

    Although it is great to go into 3D. What are the system requirements to run this game?

    The Old MS gameplay in 2D was quite smooth even on obsolete GFx card (ie GeForce Mx2 or so), even Pentium 2 CPUs could handle it.

    Hmmm…Maybe the basic requirements would be:

    CPU – Intel P4 Dual Core (P4 Core 2 Duo/Quad)
    GFX – Nvidia 8600GT 256MB [ATi not supported] (Nvidia 9800GT 512mb or
    higher for PhyX engine)
    RAM – 512MB(XP), 1GB(Vista)
    HDD – 160GB (Installation takes up to about 4GB including
    patches and updates)
    Sound – Onboard support (Creative X-Fi for Dolby 5.1 channels)
    LAN – 512Kbps (3Mbps or higher)

    Dun quote me, this is juz reference.
