MMORPG to host - yes - Halloween events.
SAN JOSE, Calif. - Oct. 28, 2008 Joymax, an independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced an exclusive Halloween event for the historical fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. Players can show off their ghoulish sides by obtaining jewel boxes to trade for Witch or Wizard costumes and accessories. These jewel boxes are dropped from monsters, and players can exchange these boxes with NPCs in order to receive these festive items. Gifts will be given at random, and players can make as many exchanges as they wish in order to complete their looks. The Halloween event will come to a close on November 11th, so be sure to join the party before it all fades away!
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 Jang’an, 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 recently released expansion, Legend III Roc Mountain, added new territory, quests, weapons, and an increased level cap for adventurers. With over 18 million registered users and 170,000 concurrent players worldwide, the triangular conflict of Silkroad Online has never been more exciting.
