MOB OF DANCING KNIGHTS TRIGGER OFFICIAL RELEASE

Seoul, Korea , September 4, 2012--- Joymax, known to service online games globally (most famed being Silkroad Online & Digimon Masters), commences its official release of the free-to-play MMORPG, Knight Age, today! The game completed its Open Beta Test which started on August 28th. In response to the fevered interests, including mobs of knights dancing in an in-game square, OBT came to a close after a short week and jumped straight into official release.

Knight Age, 3D Fantasy MMORPG with its unique Riding-Action game, experienced a greater hype in OBT than in CBT; exclusively being reviewed in popular sites, such as Massively.com and MMOSite.com. OBT was highly praised by the players for its massive content updates and event-packed opening. Knight Age even carried a surprise in-game event, inviting all players to an exclusive dance party starring the GM (who looked eerily similar to a certain globally famous k-pop star) as the guest.

Players can expect more exciting grand updates with today's official release - a raised level cap, new mounts and Pupa to collect, a whole new dungeon, heaps of new events that never leave a dull moment for the players, and it’s free!

From Closed Beta Test to Open Beta Test, the highest level a player could achieve in Knight Age was level 24. However, today's official release raises the level cap to 35 which means more quests and monsters! Open Beta data is carried over to the official release so even maxed out characters will have a hand full for a long time!

Knight Age's prime feature (and Knight Age Facebook poll's no. 1 interest) is its unique riding-action where battles are mainly commenced on mounts. Rides can be raised and strengthened with skills to befit the player's taste; whether it be fighting bosses or competing in PVP. With additional mounts added in the official release, it will be up to the player to find the right partner for the adventure.

Another unique distinction of Knight Age is the pet system, also known as Pupa. With the right nurturing and training these pets will become your trusty battle companions. Among the various Pupae to choose from, they can be collected and even combined to create Pupae possessing greater power. The array of Pupae grows further with the official release, meaning there will be more to collect and combine for surprising results!

Furthermore dungeons will be added and enhanced. The dungeons will not only include enemies and bosses to battle, but puzzles that require players to use both their skills and brain. As the game also includes a ‘Looking For Group’ system, players can quickly gather together similar leveled allies to conquer these more challenging game sections.

Despite the OBT lasting only one week, it was packed with 11 different events for players to participate in. Expect to see 10 different events for the official release including fighting for Excalibur on a PVP battle and taking picture-perfect shots of the dungeon bosses. These events also signify the player's last chance to earn a brand new laptop or a full gaming set (keyboard, headphones, mouse). All it takes is a simple registration through Knight Age Official Website: http://bit.ly/GKAPortalPR_0904

Knight Age is full of activity, both on Facebook and in-game, with GMs ready to answer your call for help (or have a friendly chat) 24/7 and surprise events popping out everywhere. There will never be a mundane moment in Knight Age, and again, it's free-to-play!
