SAN FRANCISCO, March 20, 2024 ~ Nexon Group's global blockchain project, MapleStory Universe, made a splash at the 2024 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco with their session on "Bringing the Real World Economy to MMORPG." As journalists and gaming enthusiasts gathered to learn about the latest developments in the industry, Keith Kim, Head of Strategy at MapleStory Universe project, took the stage to share insights on their highly anticipated game, MapleStory N.

During the session, Kim explained how economic immersion is integrated into the game design of MapleStory N. He highlighted the challenges faced by traditional MMORPGs where items are generated infinitely, making it difficult to maintain their value or Reward Experiences (RX) for users. However, with MapleStory N's limited quantity system for game items, players will have a more enjoyable experience acquiring and using them.

The distribution of game items in MapleStory N is determined by a macroscopic method based on item types and rarity. This unique system not only adds new gameplay patterns but also allows players to strategize and deploy different tactics to obtain items. Furthermore, it is expected to have a positive impact on the long-term sustainability of the game.

MapleStory Universe has been conducting internal tests on its game item reward distribution systems and has gained valuable insights from them. As they continue their research on enhancing user Reward Experience (RX), they plan to apply a demand-driven pricing model that reflects the real-world economy in their game platform.

Fans of MapleStory Universe can look forward to the release of their blockchain-based PC MMORPG 'MapleStory N' in select countries later this year. The team also has many other tools and applications in store for players. For more information, visit MapleStory Universe's official website or follow them on X (Twitter) and Medium. With their innovative approach towards integrating blockchain technology into gaming, MapleStory Universe is set to revolutionize the MMORPG genre.
