Joymax Unleashes the Legend IV: Tomb of the Qin-Shi Emperor for Silkroad Online

IRVINE, Calif. - March 17, 2009

Joymax, an independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced the launch of the Legend IV: Tomb of the Qin-Shi Emperor, an update for historical fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. The Legend IV update includes a new Turkey Traditional Outfit item available in the store and adds new features, including a high level dungeon, high grade skills, and quest updates for the Qin-Shi Tomb and Roc Mountain. These new features will provide great challenges for players seeking to restore the Qin-Shi Tomb in Silkroad Online.

"We are dedicated to providing our audience with new and entertaining storylines, challenging quests, and epic battles in Silkroad Online,” said Jina Song, General Manager at Joymax. "We're really looking forward to hearing how audiences react to the Legend IV Update: Tomb of the Qin-Shi Emperor."

In the Legend IV update, an ancient white viper named BeakYung has been awakened from her meditation by humans exploring the Tomb of Qin-Shi. Players must fight their way through the dungeon’s powerful guardians and defeat BeakYung in order to restore order to the imperial tomb. The dungeon is playable by characters level 70 or above with six floors containing nearly 50 new monsters that must be defeated before facing BeakYung herself. New quests have been added for the Roc Mountain as well as the Qin-Shi Tomb, and the new Scenario Quest system gives players a true cinematic experience. Players will have access to new weapons and armor, and high-level abilities in order to take on the new monsters and BeakYung.

For a limited time, slain monsters will also randomly drop Jewel Boxes to celebrate the new content. These boxes are valuable artifacts that may be traded in for B-grade Devil’s Spirits and mysterious alchemic stones. Players who are up to the challenge will be able to use these alchemical rewards to craft the most powerful 10th-grade weapons imaginable, tools that should serve them well as they explore dark and dangerous Tomb of Qin-Shi!
