MapleStory 2 Talks Style Crates and PvP

Fashion and digitally murdering the avatars of complete strangers. Two great tastes that taste great together? No, actually, but they were some of the topics covered in a MapleStory 2 post-launch producer’s letter that offered a few looks at what the team has planned next.

After collecting feedback regarding the Style Crates, the devs have decided to introduce items originally available through the crates into the regular cash shop as well in an effort to not keep cosmetics locked behind RNG. Additionally, those who bought Style Crates will be compensated with one Style Coin for every five crates purchased. All of these changes are due on the October 18th update.

For those eager to get into the PvP swing of things, the team plans to reintroduce PvP and an updated PvP gear system early this coming December. More specific details will be unveiled around the third or fourth week of November.

The blog post also stirred the pot for the MMO’s upcoming Halloween update and briefed fans on a few of the higher profile issues being taken on like launch errors, bots, and changes to the dungeon cap. All of that can be read at this link.

Our Thoughts

We suspect there will be more than a few MapleStory 2 players ready for PvP to make a return. Here’s hoping it does so successfully…because as it’s been demonstrated already, folks will let the devs know if it’s not.

Blade & Soul Maps Out 2018 Updates and Shows Off a New Class

A new Blade & Soul producer’s letter has been penned and it’s full of information about the current and future development of the action MMO. Among the details in the letter are a reveal of an upcoming class, new instances and updates to existing systems.

We’ll get the big one out of the way first: pictured above is the new class, which doesn’t quite have a name yet but is described as a tank character that uses both the power of their greatsword and the expense of their own HP to dish out pain. Naturally, as a tank class, it can also unleash skills that mitigate damage and gain temporary immunity to status effects.

In addition to the new class, players can look forward to Act 9 of the primary story, new solo and six-player Heroic dungeons, an upcoming feature to upgrade your Legendary equipment, and a variety of other features. There was even word of the Unreal Engine 4 upgrade, which should be expected sometime next year.

In the more immediate future, the letter also brought word of efforts to further enhance the game’s existing Premium membership as well as work on 6v6 issues and bugs that continue to hamper players. You can read up on what’s now and next in the full letter here.

Our Thoughts

That’s a pretty sword! More than that, though, this new class sounds like an interesting addition to the Blade & Soul roster. Here’s to more in 2018!
