RED’s second update, Zero, has been announced. This new playable character is being released on December 18th and Nexon has published the Update Highlights and a trailer of the update.
Oh, and before I show you the Update Highlights, I want to say this: I’m truly sorry I haven’t published a post about the first RED update, First Impact, yet. Again, the problem is that I’m just too busy to spend enough time on my blog. I will, however, upload a video of the new Explorer’s tutorial, and I will write a post about Zero, when it’s released.
Please read on!
Meet Zero, a new playable character that’s actually two characters in one!
Coming December 18, Zero is one of MapleStory’s most unique characters to date. Read on to learn about their origins and skills.
The Goddess Rhinne controls the flow of time, though this mighty ability comes with a price: Rhinne can change anyone’s future… but her own. Upon learning that the Black Mage would imprison her in the future, Rhinne had no choice but to create a child, a new Transcendent she hoped would one day replace her. That child was Zero.
The Black Mage recognized the threat Zero represented. However, if he destroyed it, another Transcendent would simply take Zero’s place. Thus, he gave his Commanders a task: split the Child of the Goddess into two separate entities, to prevent them from using their full powers. The two children, a boy and a girl, were taken to a world designed specifically to keep them locked away; Mirror World.
The boy was raised as one of the Shadow Knights, an elite organization trained to battle the evils of the Umbra Temple, a pit of evil monsters located just outside their hometown of Shadowvale. But, as he grew older, he sensed that something was amiss. And one day he was proven right. He found a girl, bound and asleep inside the very temple he had been trained to fear, and the girl had his face. The boy knew he had to save her, and escape this prison, to find the truth…
Zero is two new characters rolled up in one! Take control of Alpha and Beta and master their distinct fighting styles. Use both at the same time or swap between them during battle.
The Zero class starts at Level 100 and remains in Mirror World until their story is complete at Level 180. After that they can explore Maple World to their hearts’ content. Zero’s skills are powered by Time Force, and not MP. Time Force recovers quickly and can be used almost limitlessly.
Zero comes equipped with two weapons: Lapis and Lazuli, and as Zero grows, their weapons receive Weapon Points and grow in tandem.
Rhinne may be imprisoned but hope is not lost. Take control of Zero and escape Mirror World!
Seems like a promising update! Also, you can expect to see a video of the new Explorer’s tutorial in the near future.
