Maplestory: The 5th Job Key Features

Posted on November 19, 2016

After nearly a decade wait, Maplestory finally releases its class-wide 5th Job Advancement update.

Come December 15, Nexon will be releasing the “V” update — or as they put it, the game’s “largest update in nearly a decade.”

The title V is in honor of the fact that update will introduce the game’s fifth job advancement. This advancement is class-wide and will empowers players to boost beyond their limitations to reach maximum potential and become a hero of Maple legend with new abilities, equipment and high-end content.

Players will need to be on top of their game too, as there will be whole new areas for high level characters to explore. The update also includes three new areas, each with unique strings, and an all new boss named Lucid: Master of the Nightmares, which Nexon is billing as the “most difficult boss in Maple history”.

Players will also be able to participate in MapleStory’s limited-time training program starting on the 30th of November, which offers numerous advantages:

Mega Burning Project: New characters get a 2-for-1 level boost up to level 130 and helpful gifts along the way.

Breakthrough V Event: Once a character reaches level 140, he will continue to receive prizes for each tenth level reached. The ultimate prize awaits at level 200, allowing players to get the experience they need to get the fifth job.

Nexon has announced that 5th job will start in GMS November 30th!

The 5th Job Key Features that are coming:

  • New power skills for each class
  • Damage cap removed
  • New matrix system to buff and combine skills for more character customization
  • Large new 200+ areas
  • Lower Exp requirement to get to level 200
  • New user interface

More news about the upcoming V update should be made available very soon. Be sure to stay tuned for more Maplestory updates and even the maplestory 2 mesos promotion at

MapleStory 2: West Version Will Be Launched Soon

Posted on November 12, 2016

Nexon shared on its Web site the opening for the vacancy of ‘Product Manager’ for MapleStory 2 for the El Segundo office in California. Generally when game producers open job openings, it is an important indication that a new title will be produced or will also be developed elsewhere to facilitate their launch in the region. Does it means the western release is coming?

As the sequel to the widely popular MapleStory, Maplestory 2 takes place in the same game world, but with plenty of added features and a whole new dimension. MapleStory 2 was released in South Korea on July 7th, 2015. The game is doing fine in South Korea while it’s one of the anticipated new MMOs in China (published by Tencent Games).


Nexon posted a job opening for a “Production Manager – MapleStory 2” for the company’s office in El Segunda, California. This is the first bit of news we’ve seen that leads us to believe that MapleStory 2 may finally be coming to the West. The game never reached blockbuster status in South Korea and has been missing in recent Nexon investor presentations, but seeing this job posting means the company is working towards releasing the game in the West.

The job description states that the future Project Manager will be “responsible for the tactical publishing and live cycle of one or more game titles for Nexon America. This role ensures that the assigned game(s) are delivered on time and within budget.” This is the first step towards the release of MapleStory 2 in the West and it will take some time until we will get some details about the game’s release schedule.

There’s no word on a release date just yet though. All we know is that Nexon is looking to hire a production manager for the game in their SoCal office. Nexon hasn’t even made a formal announcement about this, so the Western launch could still be many months or even a year away.

As gamers who has played the original MapleStory, this news is quite exciting. MapleStory 2 was missing from Nexon’s GSTAR 2016 lineup and wasn’t there last year either. MapleStory 2 has not yet become popular in South Korea as its predecessor and by the latest news, the title is losing investors. So seeing the game finally coming to the West is definitely a surprise.

With this opening of the vacancy in Nexon International, everything leads to believe that the game will come to the West in a not so close future.
