Jung-Hun Kwag provides an update on the progress of Silk Road Online since its global launch in March
Silk Road Online was the other MMORPG KIPA (The Korean IT Industry Promotion Agency) chose as part of the Game&Game World Championships for 2006. Developed by Joymax, Silk Road Online has had over 2-million players register an account since it launched on March 14th of this year. Of those players, Joymax is uncertain how many actually play, but the global version of the game requires 11 servers, each with roughly three to four thousand active players at peek hours.
The game is free to play, but allows players to buy things like accelerated experience gain, pets, potions, scrolls, character customization and other non-essential parts of the game. Most of which, added Jung-Hun Kwag of Joymax, were available for free players to earn as well.
