MapleStory Europe

"Snow and stockings galore" promised as Christmas gets under way.

[December 16, 2008] Christmas is all around, and MapleStory Europe has yet again prepared a special celebratory event for a delightful Christmas that’s full of festive fun, excitement and generous presents.

The Christmas cheer, which starts on December 16th and runs until January 15th, invites players to explore an amazing, special Christmas town full of sparkling Yuletide trimmings and festive spirit. However, with the town short of one very important holiday staple - snow! - players will need to hunt down special Christmas items first if they want the snow to start falling and MapleStory Europe to have a traditional white Christmas.

And what’d Christmas be without gift giving? Players can present each other with items from the Cash Shop, and all players who send a gift item to a fellow player will receive a special Christmas present during the event period. Players also have the opportunity to participate at further events including Cash Shop Sale, 2X EXP and Drop Event, and many more.

MapleStory originally launched in South Korea in April 2003 and quickly went on to become one of the most successful online games of all time, with over 92million registered accounts across the world. MapleStory Europe, which launched in May 2007, is the latest iteration of the completely free to play franchise, and offers gamers in Europe the chance to play MapleStory in five different languages ?English, French, German, Spanish and Dutch.
