[UPDATE Jul 19] Closed Beta 2 has Begun!

Update (July 19th): We have deployed a small hotfix update to fix issues causing the 10049 and 10060 errors, preventing players from logging into MapleStory 2. Thank you for your patience.

Update (July 18th): The issue where players are unable to launch MapleStory 2 if their Operating System was set to Portuguese has been fixed. Thank you for your patience.

The Closed Beta 2 has begun! With all of MapleStory 2 to play in but only two weeks time to do it, you'll want to hit the ground running, so make sure you get a handle on the details!

How to Launch MapleStory 2

If you've been accepted to the Beta, an email was sent to your inbox and the Beta Status Check page was updated with the good news. Just download the Nexon Launcher if you haven't already, log in with the account you used to sign up for beta, install the game, and launch via the Nexon Launcher!

Additionally, any prizes you earned via the Road Trip to Closed Beta and Tria's Tournament of Champions events will be delivered to the first character you create during Closed Beta, and those rewards can be sent to other characters on that account.

Founder's Packs

As we approach the full release of MapleStory 2, we're opening up sales of Founder's Packs for those that want to get a headstart when MapleStory 2 officially launches. With exclusive items, Premium Club Membership, and a large cache of Merets, there's an option for every budget! There's only 20,000 Packs available for purchase during Closed Beta 2, so learn more in the Founder's Pack post!

Closed Beta Specific Settings

We want to get as much information from you as possible about how much you enjoy MapleStory 2. To make that possible, some aspects of the Closed Beta have been altered from where they will be when MapleStory 2 is fully released, such as:

  • All housing blocks and UGC templates are completely free, so that you can create and share to your heart's content.
  • Meso costs for housing plots are significantly reduced from their eventual price on release.
  • Meret Market will be active, however NX cannot be converted into Merets.
    • Merets will be distributed through events throughout Closed Beta 2, for use in the Meret Market and with content that does require Merets
  • Maximum level for the Closed Beta will be Lv. 50.
  • Maximum Enchanting level for the Closed Beta will be Lv. 15.
  • Data will be wiped when the Closed Beta concludes, to provide everyone with a fresh start on an even playing ground with the official release
    • Road Trip and Tria's Tournament of Champions rewards will be granted again with the Official Release
  • Founder's Pack items, including Founder's Merets, will not be distributed during Closed Beta 2. Only Closed Beta 2 access will be granted from the Founder's Packs.

We've also made a number of changes to MapleStory 2, based on your feedback from the first Closed Beta and our continued development of the game. Check it out in the Closed Beta 2 Patch Notes post!

Where to Give Feedback

Our primary goal with the MapleStory 2 Closed Beta is to give you a sneak peek at MapleStory 2 and to get your thoughts on where we're going. While we'll be looking at every piece of feedback closely, we've set up a number of threads on the Closed Beta 2 Feedback Forum that you can use to give us feedback on specific systems and topics.

There will also be a survey sent out during Closed Beta 2 to help us gather your feedback, so keep an eye out for it!

Producer's Blogs

In the time since the first Closed Beta ended, we've put together more than a few articles about the changes to come, the new features we're adding and much more! Read up on how MapleStory 2 has been changing and get ready for more fun!
