Joymax Celebrates the Holiday Season in Silkroad Online with the Legend III Plus Update

IRVINE, Calif. - Dec. 16, 2008

Joymax, an independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced the launch of Legend III Plus, a new update for historical fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. To celebrate the holidays, the update is launching with a limited-time Jewel Box Event. During the celebration, monsters will randomly drop Jewel Boxes that can be traded in for special reward items, including the new B-grade Devil’s Spirits. When equipped, Devil’s Spirits give players the ability to transform into a demon, temporarily increasing HP, MP, damage, and movement speed. While B-grade Devil’s Spirits provide a 5 percent boost, higher-grade Spirits, purchasable in the Item Mall, can boost abilities by up to 25 percent.

The Legend III Plus update also adds a brand-new area to conquer. Just south of Jangan lies the Bandit Fortress. This area is occupied in the same fashion as the Jangan Fortress and it features both a Specialty Shop and Ferry landing that fall under the control of those who occupy the stronghold. There is sure to be a lot of competition with this latest update, so make careful preparations if you have any hopes of becoming the next ruler of the Bandit Fortress!
