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, provides players with an all-new dungeon to explore atop Roc Mountian. Those who survive the battle with its guardian, the monstrous King of the Rocs, are rewarded with some of the finest treasures the game has to offer. More information about Silkroad Online and the Legend IV Plus update is available at www.joymax.com/silkroad.
