It would appear that MapleStory 2 is off to a strong start. With only a week behind it since the MMO’s official free-to-play launch, MapleStory 2 registered downloads have hit the six figure mark – a milestone that the game will be celebrating with free stuff and a little in-game event.
It’s not entirely clear whether these 1 million downloads have actually translated into 1 million active players, but graphics put together by the devs seem to suggest that as many people are enjoying the game. The announcement gives particular nod to the fact that it’s increasing its servers, particularly the Oceania server.
Regardless of the semantics about how many people are actually playing, the MMO’s growth has been reason enough to offer goodies to fans. Starting this Friday, October 19th until the following Friday, October 26th, players can look forward to double the bonus items from normal difficulty Adventure Dungeons.
In addition, there will be a special login campaign this weekend for those who have hit the max level of 60. Players who login between Saturday, October 20th and Sunday, October 21st will receive a free Style Crate, while logging in between the 21st and 22nd will net you 500 Red Merets.
These are on top of the ongoing Halloween event being celebrated in-game, where players can enter a totally-not-haunted hotel and feed a pumpkin slime for various rewards. In case you missed out on that, a trailer can be seen below.
Our own review certainly found plenty of comfort in this particular MMO, so bearing that in mind it’s probably not hard to see why it’s doing so well. We’d like to offer our congratulations to the MapleStory 2 team and hope that things continue to look up from here.
