MapleStory 2 Reaches One Million Downloads

MapleStory 2 has reached one million downloads, which may be no surprise if you're playing the game.

It is no secret I'm playing lots of MapleStory 2. My review is in progress, but what I can say now is this: It's a wonderfully casual MMORPG that's all too easy to spend four or so hours in at a time.

If you're playing the game, it may come as no surprise that the game has already reached the one million downloads milestone. One trip to Tria or even doing the Halloween event quests will tell you that this game is packed. Absolutely packed.

God help you if you're trying to get to Queenstown Channel 1 at peak times.

If you haven't been playing MapleStory 2, it may come as a total surprise that the game is actually doing well. MapleStory's peak was, what, a decade ago?

Luckily, the sequel has turned out to be a completely different beast from the original game. Leveling is quick and easy, with your primary rewards as a player (outside of Epic Quests) coming from dungeon runs, playing minigames, and socializing in one form or another.

To celebrate the game's success, Nexon is holding an event to help the current playerbase reach new heights. This event entails:

  • Double drops for Normal dungeons, from today (October 18) to October 25
  • 1 Style Crate for players who have reached 60, starting 8 p.m. EDT Friday, October 19 until 8 p. m. EDT Saturday, October 20
  • 500 Red Merets for players who have reached 60, starting 8 p.m. EDT Saturday, October 20 until 8 p.m. EDT Sunday, October 21

If you haven't hit 60, it's time to start exclusively doing Epic Quests. Those 500 Red Merets are too much to deny -- I need them. You need them. We all need them.

I've been writing some guides for MapleStory 2; check out my OX Quiz cheat sheet if you're sick of losing at the game's least active minigame.

I've been playing games since '89, and arcade-style games are my jam. I've played over 400 hours of Risk of Rain. Favorite Final Fantasy is 12. Rhythm games and roguelikes/lites are life.
