Silkroad Online Turns 15

Posted on September 17, 2012 AT 12:56pm

Computer games come and computer games go so having an MMORPG that makes it to 15 is a pretty big deal. Silkroad Online has hit many a milestone since it’s launch in 1997. The most impressive? It was the first MMORPG to have 100,000 concurrent logged in users, a feat that was not thought feasible unless it was a big name title.

“When we opened the doors to Silkroad Online in 1997, we had no idea we would one day be celebrating fifteen years of active service!” said Nam-Chul Kim, CEO of Joymax.  “It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the tenth anniversary, which in and of itself is a huge milestone.  We give our most heartfelt thanks to all of our players for your ongoing interest and support.”

The fans of Silkroad Online are going to be the ones getting the gifts. Beginning September 19th,  Joymax will be hosting a selection of events for players that will shape the world of Silkroad. There is even a Facebook contest called  “Design an Avatar”. The winner’s design will be used to create an in-game clothing model that players will be able to use.  The full details of the contest will be available in a few days.
