The Big Bang is the largest single update to ever come to MapleStory and is more than just another content update. It is a great opportunity to revisit the basic underpinnings and reorganize the inner workings of the game to make it more flexible and modern. The Big Bang will take everything players know about MapleStoryand rewrite it down to its most basic level.

The Big Bang update will launch in July and enhance the MapleStory experience players are currently enjoying. The update not only brings a number of changes and additions to the game but also comes in three stages. The first update is called Big Bang and will arrive on the 21st of July, the second stage will be released two weeks later and the third stage of the update will hit in another two weeks time. With all the new additions to the game, players ofMapleStory won’t forget this eventful summer.

New maps, a completely redesigned interface and skill system, an updated combat formula and easier levelling are just a few of the big amount of changes,MapleStory players will face this summer. The focus was to help as many players as possible experience the varied content of MapleStory that Nexon developed the last five years.

“We are very pleased to announce that Big Bangis coming in less than a month. With the Big Bangupdate, users will experience a whole new MapleStorywith plenty of fun and joy and we hope our dear Maplers will indulge themselves to MapleStory during this summer season”, says Sungjin Kim, CEO of Nexon Europe.

MapleStory is a free-to-play 2D Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) which allows players to fight monsters, solve quests and join fellow gamers in an exciting online adventure.


Lionheart Castle (MapleStory)

Yesterday a lot of information was recovered by spadow and fiel (southperry.com)

I would like to share my thoughts about it!

Newly added NPC:

Newly added monsters:

Monsters are level 115 and higher! (for the complete stats check spadows blog or southperry.com)

K. So its Lionheart Castle eh?

Lets discuss the location first! Look at that npc holding those Keys. He is wearing a fur hat. Most of the monsters have fur on them (the last one event got magma/lava inside him) And where can we find furry monsters, NPCs with warm clothes and lava? Thats right! El nath! Even most of the monsters are Ice resistant.

Now lets take a look at what this new place is supposed to be.. A PQ? a new training area? A new GuildPQ?

The weakest monster (the crocodile one) has a total of 7.400.000 hp. Thats quite a lot for just a regular monster right? The other monsters even got higher HP. That doesn’t look like a nice monster to train on…

Furthermore the NPCs talk about the black mage taking over the castle…

What could this be? A new PQ? A new GPQ?

Considering KMS just got a huge guild revamp. And its more important then ever to acquire guildpoints (now only obtainable trough GPQ) I would say that this is another guild pq~!

Ofcourse everything I speculate of doesn’t have to be true! bear that in mind!

Thanx to spadow and fiel!
