Ancient Power Set to Awaken in Silkroad Online with Legend IV: Tomb of the Qin-Shi Emperor

Major Update for the Historical Fantasy MMORPG to Include a New Dungeon, Epic Quests, Powerful Skills, and Never-Before-Seen Monsters

IRVINE, Calif. - Feb. 24, 2009

Joymax, an independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced that Legend IV: Tomb of the Qin-Shi Emperor, an update for historical fantasy MMORPG Silkroad Online, is nearing completion and will soon be ready for a worldwide launch. BeakYung, the ancient white viper, has accidentally been awakened from her meditation by humans exploring the Tomb of Qin-Shi. The warriors and mages of Silkroad Online must rally together and fight their way through the dungeon’s powerful guardians if they intend to face her wrath and restore order to the imperial tomb.

To aid in these efforts, the Legend IV update brings with it a number of potent new weapons, tough armor sets, and high-level abilities for both races, as well as a variety of new quests on Roc Mountain. The dungeon itself is open to players at level 70 or above with six floors containing nearly 50 never-before-seen monsters that must be defeated before facing BeakYung herself!

“The Legend IV: Tomb of the Qin-Shi Emperor update is more than just a chance for us to add interesting new characters, impressive weapons and challenging quests,” said Jina Song, General Manager at Joymax.“Each update allows us to expand the storyline, and add depth and color to the rich history of Silkroad Online.”
