Joymax Announces the Start of Spanish Language Service for Fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online

IRVINE, Calif. - April 20, 2010

Joymax, an independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced the start of Spanish language service for Fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. To celebrate, Joymax has also kicked off a community event lasting until May 11 which features three contests with real-world and in-game prizes. Spanish players of Silkroad Online can sign up today at www.joymax.com/silkroad for the chance to win t-shirts, USB drives, video cards, and more.

For a shot at prizes in the main contest, new users just need to share their thoughts about the game at the official Silkroad Online site. Joymax will randomly select from the posts and award the winning players with prizes that include hats, t-shirts, USB drives, and posters.

New Spanish users looking for more of a challenge should start adventuring as soon as possible, as the second contest dares players to reach level 40 with a new character before May 11. Joymax will choose ten winning characters to receive a reward of 20,000 skill points!

For the final contest, Spanish players can earn increasing numbers of lucky coupons during the event period by making Silk purchases of varying sizes at the Item Mall. Each coupon they earn improves their chances at winning additional Silk, as well as real-world prizes that include an iPod and a brand-new video card.

About Silkroad Online

Silkroad Online is a massively multiplayer online RPG 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. The most recent expansion, Legend V: Heroes of Alexandria, provides players with an increased level cap of 110, the new Set Items system, eleventh-grade weapons, the vast land of Egypt to explore, and two never-before-seen dungeons: the Tomb of the Pharaoh and the Temple!
