Joymax announced a rebirth in the Silkroad universe with the upcoming launch of Silkroad-R. Silkroad-R is based in the universe of the hugely popular Silkroad Online game, also from Joymax, and will offer an evolved Silkroad experience with faster leveling in a cleaner game environment and additional content for improved balance between tribes and classes, while also offering an experience completely independent from the original Silkroad Online. Silkroad-R will go into Open Beta next week and will be celebrated with multiple events, with great prizes, including Silkroad bingo, and several special level-up events.

In Silkroad-R the skill balance will be improved with changes in weapons damage for both Chinese and European class weapons as well as additional Chinese and European skills. Party EXP is improved and players can expect an integration and changes in skill mastery and changes in European class skill damages.

Growth & skill points in Silkroad-R have improved with reduced required EXP for leveling up, changes in monster item drop rates and in mastery & required skill points, with increased chances of 11th level Jupiter monster item drops and additional 12th level item drops from the Jupiter boss monster.

Improvements in the level design of Silkroad include new quest routes and monster locations and additions for quest convenience, with no Gold drops for level 70 and below alongside plenty of other small balance tweaks.

The Forgotten World has improved ,with higher chances of creating Dimension Pillars, a major reduction of re-entrance time and increase of rewards with additional skill point rewards, an additional movement portal inside the Forgotten World instance dungeon as well as a higher talisman drop rate.

Lastly, the UI in Silkroad-R is improved with information on the character select screen, mouse pointer, mini map, item purchase UI, guide tool tip and much more.

Silkroad-R is the all-new, light and easy to play massively multiplayer online role-playing game that picks up where the original left off. The game provides a bot-free and lag-free experience for players while they journey deep into historical fantasy, joining the Chinese and European civilizations along the Silk Road trade routes. Traveling across Jangan, from China to Constantinople, players can make their fortunes as merchants, prey on the rich as thieves, or be protection-for-hire as hunters. Silkroad-R provides players with the ultimate PVP experience. Players can battle it out with their Fellows, their partner pets, to become champions of the Silk Roads.

Players can go to to register for a Joymax account and jump straight into the action starting December 20th!

    • Diehard1272 on December 19, 2011

      Is the game really that popular that the servers are filled or just bots? server issues?

      its the same game, mate, with UI and XP improvements.. and other small improvements

      graphics are the same and everything else is the same, it makes me wonder if there is really any point in having this game

    the irony that I was banned from the original Silkroad for suggesting they make these changes in game, they killed the original 3 months after, then wouldn’t allow me back when the game was relaunched due to being a “trouble maker” for the suggestions…

    now here it is with my suggestions…. think they’ll let me play?

    ehm , Shouldn’t the title be ” silkroad-r has BEEN announced! ” ??

    • Kadlec on December 17, 2011

      Yeah, it’s a trap!

  10. Zadkiel on December 17, 2011

    is there any improvement in graphics or is it the same as in the original silkroad online game?

  11. zoren580 on December 16, 2011

    pls be better

  12. cacalips on December 16, 2011

    1 big problem. joymax. They just lost titles, and are trying to make up for it. Sadly, this could be costly, or just die off like their other titles.

    • NatsumeShin on December 16, 2011

      Hmm ya do have a point there, lets hope for the best

  13. NatsumeShin on December 16, 2011
