SEOUL, South Korea - November 5, 2010

Joymax, a developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced the much-anticipated arrival of both the Web Item Mall and“Premium Silk” for Fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. Players can now easily shop for powerful items both in-game and through their favorite web browser, ensuring their characters are prepared to face every foe they meet on their travels.

To use the Web Item Mall, players simply need to visit the official Silkroad Online site, http://www.joymax.com/silkroad, and log in using their account information. Once logged in, they can purchase anything that’s available in-game, from impressive outfits to ability-boosting scrolls, and collect their items on their next visit to the virtual Silk Road.

Premium Silk, meanwhile, is sure to have a big impact on the Silkroad Online community, as it can be gifted directly to other players by generous users. Even more importantly, most goods purchased from the Item Mall with Premium Silk can be traded like a typical in-game item, ensuring that users have even more control over the management of their character’s inventory.

To celebrate the launch of the Web Item Mall, Joymax is hosting a trio of exciting events with valuable in-game rewards from Nov. 9– Dec. 7. For more information about these events, as well as information about the new Silkroad Online Web Item Mall, please visit http://www.joymax.com/silkroad.
