Maplestory‘s next upcoming expansion Ark is releasing on June 20th. Maplestory Ark will include the addition of the new pirate class Ark, Morass Area, Grand Athenaeum Part 5: Shadow Alchemist, Esfera Area and Monad Area.
Before the release of Ark, Maplestory is having a Community Event that lasts up to June 20th where players share news about Ark on both twitter and facebook for everyday leading up to the event to receive those rewards immediately plus a bonus reward box for sharing all the news. This is all done through Maplestory Ark’s micro-site.
There is also an in-game Ark Attendance Check that will last until Ark’s launch where players have to defeat monsters within their level range to receive a stamp for that given day.
Lastly, the last Community Event going on is the Monster Hunting Community Event where depending on how many monsters are defeated from now til the launch of Ark, if players are able to reach certain thresholds of 45 million, 75 million, 120 million or 180 million total monsters defeated will reward cumulative community boxes.
