Silkroad-R Launches Highly Successful Open Beta
Joymax, a developer and publisher of interactive entertainment for the global market, today announced that their new blockbuster title Silkroad-R is completely free-lag free, bot free, stress free and most importantly, free-to-play. New-comers to the Silkroad franchise are now able to enjoy a very clean and fresh gaming experience. Although Silkroad-R just began its open beta test (OBT) on December 20, an additional server, Gobi, was added in order to meet with strong influx of users. So, to celebrate the game’s early success, Joymax will be hosting a string of promotions and events from now until January 17, 2012.
“Joymax’s main mission for 2011 was to find an answer to the two questions, ‘What do our players want?’, and ‘How can we give it to them?'” said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. “But to quote a line from the movie the Matrix, ‘There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.’Silkroad-R is our attempt at walking the path.It incorporates all of the most wanted player requests, from faster level-ups, less bots, and a cleaner UI to improved character balance.”
One major concern of players of any massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) is the presence of bots. Silkroad-R implements several new in-game strategies that have either eliminated or greatly reduced the presence of even the most sophisticated bot programs. In addition, Joymax has built the security and network platform in Silkroad-R from the ground-up to ensure that players are protected from in-game attacks and have a clean and safe environment to play. However, in the unlikely event that a bot does enter the system, Joymax has also implemented several polices that effectively remove the main incentives for players to turn to botting.
