Still In Beta But Holds Promise...
Silkroad Online is a recently translated Asian MMO that is currently in beta. GameZone posted their preview of this interesting title.
The Silkroad was the major cultural and economic trading route connecting ancient China with Islamic and European civilizations. It was a hazardous byway, often haunted by thieves, merchants and those who would protect the merchants from the thieves.
In an increasing trend, yet another Asian massively multiplayer online game has been translated over to English and is in the testing phase. Silkroad Online does carry some Asian influences, and some of the combat styling could be likened to KOEI’s Dynasty Warriors franchise (in a tiny way), but the game also carries some of the influences of other Asian-generated MMOs, like Lineage II.
