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 IV Plus: Hotan Fortress, provides players with a revamped Fortress War system and adds the imposing Hotan Fortress to the game. This grand structure at the heart of the Oasis Kingdom has never been captured, and only the greatest of warriors will be able to wrest control from its current inhabitants!
