"Players will find all the items they love in the cash shop, but every item has been buffed in some fashion, making the Silkroad-R cash shop the strongest yet!"
In addition, a new server, Merv, was added based on player feedback, to ensure that players will have the perfect gaming experiences from logon to finish.
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.
