Joymax Announces the Launch of Legend V Plus: Battle Arena for Silkroad Online
Latest Update for the Fantasy MMORPG Includes Large-Scale PvP Combat, Improved Connectivity, In-Game Events, and Web Events with Prizes
SEOUL, South Korea – Aug. 31, 2010
Joymax, a developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced the launch of the Legend V Plus: Battle Arena update for fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online. Beyond offering epic PvP clashes in the new Battle Arena, the Legend V Plus update also lets players power up items with the adaptable Socket System and avoid the August heat by hunting ghosts in the depths of the Dungeon of Catacomb. Whether you’re looking for dark adventures or hectic combat, the Silk Road is a great place to vacation!
The Battle Arena gives players a new way to interact with (and pulverize) other warriors, either alone or in teams, and features four different modes: Party vs. Party, Guild vs. Guild, Job vs. Job, and Random Matching. The Arena also features new zones like the Chinese Wall, an epic battleground based on the famous Great Wall of China. Players who are victorious in Battle Arena matches earn both experience and Arena Coins that can be traded in for rare gear.
To improve connectivity to the Silkroad Online servers and increase security against in-game cheating, Legend V Plus also introduces a new update to the game’s HackShield anti-cheat system. Combined with the appearance of the Statue of Justice, a powerful being dedicated to striking down illegal activities in the game’s towns, this update means the Silk Road has never been a safer place to travel.
One in-game event and four web events will also be taking place between Aug. 31 and Sept. 28. Summer Ghost Hunt, an in-game event, opens the way to the Dungeon of Catacomb through Sept. 14 and lets participating players delve the Catacomb’s depths, tracking down spirits for rewards that include very limited edition Ghost Pets. The web events occurring at the same time will reward players with prizes like brand new weapons, 500 Silk, and valuable real-world items that include an iPad!
