MapleStory Introduces Fourth Job Class

Veteran Maplers benefit from 4th Job while everyone will relish interface enhancements.

Los Angeles, CA - January 23, 2007 - Nexon America Inc., is delivering a new dimension for hardcore MapleStory players with the addition of a fourth job, which launched today. The 4th Job represents an elite tier which can only be reached through completion of rigorous class requirements demanded by a character’s three previous jobs. Nexon America recognizes the importance of rewarding and involving its most dedicated players and only a small sample of the over five million MapleStory players will have reached a high enough level to achieve the 4th Job, which begins this week. But everyone will appreciate the multitude of enhancements made to the user interface.

MapleStory is largely celebrated for its lively and energetic community, evidenced by the millions of quirky and colorful characters, abundant guilds, comical YouTube manifestations of Nexon’s MapleStory commercials, and a hyperactive forum complete with users who post photos of self-concocted MapleStory-themed desserts and costumes among their many posts. It’s MapleStory’s compelling and deep game play which drives new and existing players to the MapleWorld. The addition of the 4th Job provides further depth to an already intricate and complex game.

Players will appreciate a new meter, which will show how many hit points it will take to defeat an enemy. Items will also be easier to use with the automatic item organizer and a new world map should help Maplers have a better sense of direction while traveling the heavily-populated MapleWorld.

Also being introduced with the 4th Job update is the town of Leafre, a region dedicated to experienced (Level 100+) MapleStory players. At Leafre, players can find new upgrades for some of the game’s more powerful weapons and also party with other elite players. MapleStory’s most fearsome monsters will be found in the region as well, including the infamous Horntail, a monster renowned for its ability to defeat brave Maplers. Leafre offers a home and hunting ground for players in search of new friends and challenges.

Players above Level 70 can look forward to another first for MapleStory in North America: riding on the backs of MapleStory Mounts. This skill, projected to be immensely popular in the community, lets players ride beasts ranging from Wild Hogs to Red Dragons. Fantasy steeds are a staple in the RPG genre, which should make them a welcome addition for daily Maplers.

MapleStory players have a lot to look forward in this New Year. This update might target hardcore players but Nexon America has several updates planned for gamers of all levels. Go to http://maplestory.nexon.net for more information regarding upcoming MapleStory events and promotions.

    My 4-year old son and I have been playing MapleStory for the past few months and we have also been collecting the collectible card game cards and entering the codes online to get special items. Him and I enjoy beating up the cute bad guys in the game and finding items to equip our character with as we adventure. We are nowhere near level 100, but maybe one day before he goes to college we will reach the 4th job class status.

    Also, based on the above information it seems like we have not even scratch the surface of what the game has to offer even though we have traveled to all 4 of the main cities on the map. We have not gone into the Dungeon area yet, so maybe that is where a lot of the action exists???
