MapleStory 2 Housing a Pricey Proposition

MapleStory fans have been looking forward to MapleStory 2 for a LONG time now. When the housing trailer above was released back in September, there was quite a happy buzz throughout the MapleStory community. Just like real life though, housing may be a bit on the expensive side.

Cinderboy over at MMO Culture is reporting that MapleStory 2 housing is not only planned to be pretty expensive, but land for houses will also be very limited to own.

This doesn't throw most players out of the "home owning" world though as apartments will also be available for players to rent if buying a house just seems like it's not an option for you. MapleStory 2's apartments will allow players to decorate their pad in any way they like and apartments will likely build their own little "communities" as you and your neighbors will be seeing a lot of each other.

Apartment buildings will also feature common areas, like swimming pools, where all of the tenants of a particular building can gather and hang out.

If you happen to be in MapleStory 2's closed beta, you'll also be given limited edition sunglasses and a skateboard mount when the game actually goes live.

As soon as you can get in, start saving if you plan to be a home owner!

It seem like MMO is dead in the US for the time being...hope 2015 has a comeback for MMO's out there.

Oh and if the apartments are similar to the player housing in psu that'll be a great feature. The apartments on there served as your central base and offered internal expansion and remodeling on a basic level. If they do this as an option to everyone like that or the mog houses in ffxi that can make plot hording amongst high level guilds way more tolerable.

Actually kind of hyped about ms2, if they don't repeat the mistakes they've done over the years with micro transactions in the original and stick with cosmetics,land deeds and housing/guild hall decoration on that front this is looking to be an awesome game by the time it hits the us. I liked the original till they shifted away from the sandbox style into a b line from start to finish in an over casual wow style quest chain and with this being voxel based and promising to embrace being a sandbox it may redeem nexon.

Eh... hopefully the houses are permanent (or at least 3 months rental, or something like that). Or if we're like given a house and we have to pay real money for the furniture.

But... if it's a small boxed house with chairs you can't sit on, beds you can't sleep in, and everyone just stands on a tile... well then, it won't get a lot of money. Hopefully they improve the housing system to make it like the "SIMS," with like a pool you can swim in, turning on lamps, and other actions upon furniture.

I would kinda think the apartment would be cooler since you live right next to people and have neighbors, always wanted to see that kind of housing in a game.

having apartements is a good idea just like aion cause not everyone can afford a house or find ground.

Not too big of a deal since apartments will exist. It's good to have large money sinks, as I assume you will have some sort of recurring payment for housing.

Apartments are more in the theme of the game anyway, considering Maplestory is pretty heavy on the 'community' side of things.
