A Busy Month for SILKROAD ONLINE This October

October 19, 2012 · Filed Under MMO, News, Online · Comment 

Joymax is rolling out a series of color updates in October for their anchor MMORPG, Silkroad Online!  With newly added Fellows, POP card expansions, and next tier item upgrades for Silkroad-R starting next Tuesday, this month is bound to be a busy one for the world renowned game.  In addition to the updates, several events begin this week that players would not want to miss; especially the exclusive half-priced sale on all avatars.

This month’s avatar update is the “Skeleton Knight Outfit” which made its return after popular demands from fans.  Along with the re-release of the fan-favorite avatar, Silkroad Online announces a major half-priced sale on all available avatars for a limited time only.  Players must be swift to gain this rare event as the offer ends on October 23rd.

Avatar is an outfit which can be equipped on a character to change their outward appearance and is one of the sought out features in Silkroad Online. With over 50 different avatars to choose from—ranging from pirate look to a fierce Spartan soldier—these detailed clothing allows players to distinguish themselves from the crowd (and induce few turning heads).

Silkroad Online Celebrates an Amazing Milestone: 15 Years Of Service

September 18, 2012 · Filed Under MMO, News, Online · Comment 

Joymax, leading online game developer and publisher widely known for Digimon Masters and Knight Age, celebrates the birthday of their anchor title, Silkroad Online!  With an almost unheard of fifteen years of service, Silkroad Online is one of the oldest running MMORPGs, without any long-term service interruptions.  To celebrate this monumental occasion, Joymax is sponsoring a variety of contests and in-game parties for its loyal community.  Players new, old, or returning can register or log into their account on the official site at http://www.joymax.com/silkroad/.

“When we opened the doors to Silkroad Online in 1997, we had no idea we would one day be celebrating fifteen years of active service!” said Nam-Chul Kim, CEO of Joymax.  “It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the tenth anniversary, which in and of itself is a huge milestone.  We give our most heartfelt thanks to all of our players for your ongoing interest and support.”

Silkroad Online was one of the first MMORPGs on the market to hit the coveted 100,000 concurrent logged in users, and at the time it was a plateau that was widely thought to be unreachable for any titles beyond a few big budget offerings.  For a free to play to reach such a status was practically unheard of, but Silkroad’s success continues to this day.

February 25, 2010 · Filed Under Fantasy, MMO, News, Online · Comment 

Exciting Update Includes an Increased Level Cap, Dangerous Dungeons, and Plenty of New Adventures for Players of Silkroad Online

Joymax announced Legend V: Heroes of Alexandria, an update for historical fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. The Legend V expansion includes a new level cap of 110, never-before-seen weapons and armor, a sinister tomb, and a dangerous temple, providing plenty of exciting new gameplay for players hoping to be the next hero in Silkroad Online.

The land of Egypt in Legend V: Heroes of Alexandria is a land of golden cities, dangerous foes, and rich treasures. Characters must be at least level 100 to visit the new region, which includes the imposing city of Alexandria, the Desert of Storms and Cloud, the Valley of Kings, and two massive dungeons known as the Tomb of the Pharaoh and the Temple.

Players can choose from three difficulty levels before entering the Tomb of the Pharaoh with their party, and may visit up to twice a day to hunt for the powerful eleventh-grade weapons and armor that reside within its walls. The Temple, meanwhile, is an instanced dungeon for characters level 105 and up where PvP combat is always permitted. Be prepared to fight off both vicious monsters and competing players if you decide to venture into its depths.

Legend V also offers players a brand-new game system, Set Items. Gold and Silver Coins earned in Alexandria’s dungeons can be traded to merchants for unique Set Items that share a seal and provide big bonuses when worn together as a full outfit. Between these and new eleventh-grade weapons like the Reaper Ghost Sword and the Angel Breaker, every would-be hero should be well prepared for the trials and adventures that await them in Legend V: Heroes of Alexandria!
