Joymax Announces the Launch of
Legend V: Heroes of Alexandria for Silkroad Online

Latest Silkroad Online Expansion
Provides Players with New Items, New Enemies, and New Adventures in the
Sand-Swept Land of Egypt

Joymax, an independent developer and
publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced
the launch of Legend V: Heroes of Alexandria for historical fantasy MMORPG
Silkroad Online. Players above level 100 can now make their way toward the
sand-swept region of Egypt to see the sights in Alexandria, explore harsh
landscapes like the Desert of Storms and Cloud, and test their mettle in one of
two new dungeons: the party-focused Tomb of the Pharaoh and the PvP-friendly

“Just as the real Silk Road
stretched thousands of miles and connected a wide variety of cultures, the
dedication of Silkroad Online’s players has helped us create a community that
spans the entire globe,” said Jina Song, General Manager at Joymax. “We hope
everyone traveling the digital Silk Road has a blast exploring the land of
Egypt, the grand city of Alexandria, and beyond!”

Upon entering the Tomb of the
Pharaoh, parties are given the opportunity to choose from three difficulty
levels before starting their 2-hour dungeon dive. Depending on the setting
selected, monsters will drop items that range from moderately valuable to
incredibly rare. There’s even a chance that players may stumble upon one of
Legend V’s new eleventh-grade weapons, so those who are up to the challenge
should definitely take advantage of the two visits they’re allowed to make each

The Temple, open to players level
105 and above, is perhaps the most dangerous place in Silkroad Online, largely
because player vs. player combat is highly encouraged within its walls. There
are still plenty of enemies to face and loot to grab, but players who become too
focused on slaying monsters may find themselves cut down by the weapons of
another adventurer.

Another new feature, the Set Item
system, allows players to trade in gold and silver coins for gear sets that grow
more powerful when worn together. These coins can only be collected from
Alexandria’s dungeons, so expect a challenge if you want to complete each set.

Finally, the Legend V expansion also
provides players with access to an increased level cap of 110, an easier-to-use
item mall interface, and a revamped Alchemy system. Whether you’re new to the
Silk Road or an experienced trader and traveler, grand new adventures await you
in the world of Silkroad Online!
