October 19th, 2012 - Joymax, leading online game developer and publisher widely known for Digimon Masters and Knight Age, 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 23 rd.

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’s and Silkroad-R’s October updates are just the beginning of what is to come." said Nam-Chul Kim, CEO of Joymax.  "Much is planned for the following month, and players will be excited to see all the changes we’ll bring in these games."  To find out more details on the upcoming updates, visit the Official Silkroad Online Website at http://www.joymax.com/silkroad/

About SilkroadOnline

Silkroad Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game that puts the player deep into historical fantasy, joining the Chinese and European civilizations along the Silk Road trade route. Traveling across Jangan, from China to Constantinople, players can make their fortunes as merchants, prey on the rich as thieves, or be protection-for-hire as hunters.

Did you know?  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.
