This in-game world and its development is part of the fun. Similar to Minecraft, gamers will be able to create their environment by building block-like structures. When facing the bosses, it’s important to try to prevent them from causing too much destruction, otherwise your construction labor will be for naught.

One of the key in-game features that will help to build camaraderie and competition is the existence of in-game side competitions. Games within the game, such as races can be held. These in-game competitions will try to stave off what might be become mundane story-line activities.
Another added feature, is the ability to build and design your own home – furnishings too. Similar to Minecraft, you’ll be able build and design the exterior and interior of your structures, piece by piece.
To follow-up with this personalized feature, MapleStory 2 has gone on to allow Maplers to design their own costumes and edit character features. If you want to run around as a pink-striped-skirt-wearing-blue-haired-brown-skinned-bug-eyed character with scars, have at it!
The game definitely is built around providing more in-game personalized content to increase the stickiness of it all.
