SILKROAD ONLINE JUMPS INTO JUNE WITH AN UPGRADE BONANZA

Seoul, KOREA - May 31, 2011 - Joymax, a developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, announced today several new upgrades for Silkroad Online players.  The upgrades include new Item Mall and In-game item updates including the addition of the Red Riding Hood Cloak, Awaken and Special Awaken Stones, new elaborate special effects on items and more.  For additional information about the new additions, and to join the millions already enjoying Silkroad Online, players can visit http://www.joymax.com/silkroad

"Players regularly ask us for more challenges and interesting ways to show off to their friends and foes, and we're pleased to provide the newest level of competition to the game," said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. "This month we've mixed content for our veteran players with an item especially for our newer players as well."

Though the assassin item has been removed, fear not!  We noticed your grandmother's teeth have looking a little large lately and Silkroad has the solution with the new Red Riding Hood cloak in the Item Mall!

It is available starting today, but pick up this delicate (yet

powerful) cape while you can, because it will disappear on June 28th!

Already a player with 11th grade items?  Now is the chance to build on them once again.  Two new stones are available to choose from including the Awaken and Special Awaken Stones, and with the new update, equipment will no longer disappear when the upgrade fails.

The new 12th grade items are the flashiest eye-catching armor Joymax has provided so far and when strengthening the 12th grade items, special options or skill abilities will be rewarded unlike previous items.  Characters at level 101 or higher can start upgrading 12th grade items into mighty and elaborate rare items.
