MapleStory 2 Hits 1 Million Downloads A Week After Launch

It's only been 1 week since MapleStory 2 launched and the game already hit 1 million downloads. While total downloads isn't a great measure of how popular a game is, hitting the 1 million download milestone this early is still impressive. Playerbase wise the game is regularly hitting a peak of over 30,000 users on Steam and likely has at least that many players off-Steam as well.

To celebrate the occasion, MS2 will be holding various events as a thank you to players:

  • Double Bonus Item Drop Event: Starting Friday, Oct. 19 and going until Friday, Oct. 26, players will be able to earn double bonus items from normal adventure dungeons.
  • Special Weekend Login Event: Beginning Saturday, Oct. 20 until Monday, Oct. 22, players with Lv. 60 characters will have the opportunity to receive two gifts. Players who login between Saturday, Oct. 20 and Sunday, Oct. 21 will receive a Style Crate. Players who login between Sunday, Oct. 21 and Monday, Oct. 22 will receive 500 Red Merets.

Starting today, MapleStory 2 is also hosting various Halloween themed quests, dungeons, and in-game contests until November 8. Players who solve the murder mystery at the Mon Bloody Chouchou Hotel and complete the Stamp Event can collect Pumpkin Coins and exchange them for special Halloween themed items. Lv. 10+ characters, can also obtain a “Pumky Nest” item in their house by completing quests for furnishing items. Players can claim rewards including the Bouncy Pumky Mount, Little Pumky Pet, and Perched Pumky.
