MapleStory M allows players to traverse MapleWorld

  • While MapleStory M is not a direct port of MapleStory, it boasts the same gameplay mechanics that made the original title a runaway success. Underneath all of its contemporary polish, MapleStory M, like its predecessors, is still an MMORPG that allows players to traverse MapleWorld, complete raids on bosses, and customize their characters whichever way they please. Of course, this time, players will be able to do this on-the-go utilizing their iOS and Android devices.

    Nexon recently pushed out MapleStory M in a couple of territories as a soft-launch title, so it seems pretty safe to assume that the official release isn't that far off. In anticipation of when that day may come, you can pre-register on both the Play Store and the official MapleStory M website starting today. Sure, if you happen to live in Canada or any of the other soft-launch regions, you can install this right now to experience some classic 2D MMO action, but the rest of us will have to settle for a few pre-registration rewards as we wait to give it a proper go.

    I must say I was surprised to see MapleStory M show up on the Play Store with an English version. I am even more excited because it is indeed a lot closer if not almost exactly the same as the PC version. Buy cheap Maple Story M Mesos from Mmocs.com,we promise 100% safety and fast delivery. Sure the super grindy gameplay will not be for everyone, and there is no doubt that Nexon will be nickel and diming its fans when the game's IAPs are live in the finished product. But even with all of the regular complaints, there is something quite endearing about the game that is difficult to just shrug off.

    MapleStory M has a frequent maintenance schedule due to its heavy user base, and it occasionally goes down for unscheduled maintenance, too. Be sure to keep an eye on the social media channels for patch notes afterwards to learn of any changes to the level cap. Plus, sometimes you can get sweet in-game items for logging on shortly after maintenance!

    For now, the beta versions of MapleStory M and MapleStory 2 are bot-free and trading between players isn’t allowed yet, so there’s no chance of getting scammed on a deal. During the January beta, I tested out Maplestory M on a Samsung Galaxy S8 and found a much more streamlined version of the original desktop game. Instead of having to use the entire QWERTY keyboard and memorize chain combos for characters, you only need to press a few buttons. As is the case with many other mobile games, your character moves by itself to quest destinations and even auto hunts monsters so that you can level up without a lot of effort.
