Key features

Here are some of the main features of MapleStory:

  • Plot: The Black Mage, that is the antagonist in the game, was sealed away years ago. However, after the events of the Big Bang, the seal is weakening and the player assumes the role of a hero who has to restore it. Nevertheless, the player will witness the revival of the Black Mage who will try to rule Maple World. Players will have to improve the skills and status of their character.
