The second Closed Beta will introduce a number of changes to help us prepare our servers and systems for the full release. This includes new dungeons, more quests to complete, a test of the Meret Market systems and more people to give our network a real workout. We'll have more information for you about what's to come in MapleStory 2's Closed Beta 2 as we approach July 18th, so keep an eye out for more Producer Blogs!

We will be sending out invitations on Monday, July 9th and Monday, July 16th. If you aren't selected, don't worry, we'll also be giving away additional beta keys with social events on the MapleStory 2 Twitter account over the next few weeks. We'll also start selling a limited number of Founder's Packs when Closed Beta 2 begins, which come with access to Closed Beta 2. And finally, we'll be partnering with Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, to give out more Closed Beta codes to fans when Closed Beta 2 begins! And keep an eye out for another event coming early next week...

In the mean time, take a look at some of the fun that the testers had during the first Closed Beta and read up on the fun to come in the Producer Blogs!
