Joymax Opens the Gates of Hell Garden in Darkeden

IRVINE, Calif. - Dec. 17, 2008

Joymax, an independent developer of interactive entertainment for the global market, has released a new update for their vampiric MMORPG Darkeden. The new content includes access to the treacherous Hell Garden and a number of new market items, from forges and hourglasses to new yellow drops, all available in-game to the brave Slayers, Vampires, and Ousters of Darkeden.

Hell Garden is a five-story dungeon available to characters of level 100 and higher. Every story contains four ten-floor towers, each with a timed boss battle at the top. Players are rewarded for overall progress, but the best items can only be earned by defeating the final bosses of each tower.
