Joymax Unveils a New Wardrobe to Incite Fright in Silkroad Online

IRVINE, Calif. - Oct. 30, 2009

Joymax, an independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, has announced that haunted Halloween garb is now available for fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. The dark and sinister Duke outfit, complete with top hat and cape, is a perfect choice for any warrior about to seek revenge on his enemy. The Countess gown combines elegance and appeal while still exuding the ferocity of a female warrior.

These costumes aren’t just for scaring friends, either! Players can speak with the blacksmith NPC in town to upgrade avatar gear by adding individual attributes. These upgrades can enhance the gear with vitality, strength, magic and defensive traits. There are varying amounts of upgrades available per item, so choose your attire wisely.

The Duke and Countess outfits are limited edition items and will be replaced once the frightening festivities have ceased.
