MapleStory's Summer Update, Override, Revealed

Nexon just unveiled their latest update for MapleStory, titled OverRide, which is scheduled to release this summer. It'll be launching in 2 parts with OverRide: Evolve launching in June and OverRide: Venture going live in July.

Override: Evolve’ will feature:

  • Stronger Skills For 5th Job Advancement: Every class will gain access to new 5th job advancement skills, making them more powerful than ever;
  • Exciting ‘Legion System’: Characters who become ‘Legion Members’ will have access to the ‘Synergy Grid’ which will give players special bonuses depending on their ‘Legion Rank’. Players can upgrade their rank and earn rewards;
  • New and Improved ‘Omega Sector’: Players will be able to visit Dr. Kim in his lab as he prepares to investigate the nearby UFO with his team of M-Forcers. Prepare to visit new maps and fight new monsters, including a new boss!

Override: Venture’ will feature:

  • ‘Eluna Event’: Travel to the colony planet of Eluna, where players can mine the riches to earn experience and level up. Minerals can be acquired by hunting monsters, completing missions, overcoming traps and more;
  • New Epic Area ‘Arcana’: Arcana is home to the Spirit Tree which has started to lose its power. Players must help the spirits of the forest save the tree from dying. Complete quests and receive the new Arcane symbol ‘Arcana’.

  • While any update to such an old game is welcome, I really hope Nexon gets around to updating the MapleStory client again. 1920x1080 support, borderless window, and other quality of life features would be much appreciated!
