MapleStory gets aerial combat
Mounted ground combat is so yesterday’s MMO feature. If you want to really rise above the competition, then you’ll need to throw in aerial combat into your game.
MapleStory is doing just this with an upcoming patch. In the second chapter of the Black Heaven storyline, players will be able to jump into a flying machine and duke it out in the sky. As with everything else in the game, the action will take place strictly in a side-scrolling 2-D format. From the looks of it, it calls back to classic shmups of earlier console generations.
Also coming in one of the future updates is a revamp to MapleStory’s Resistance classes, including the Wild Hunter, Battle Mage, and Mechanic.
