This was actually announced a week or two ago. I've been getting alot of questions about this one so I'm writting this to clarify the entire thing. Level-up serves as a payment gateway for players who live in the Philippines. Gamers can use Level-up cards to buy silk in-game for the Silkroad Item Mall. Silkroad is free-to-play, and you can download the internation client at the Silkroad Website.
Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let's talk about the game! The story is rather simple. Basically the Romans wanted the silk from China because of its rarity and distinct beauty. Eventually one Chinese man named Janggeon found a route wherein Romans can eventually get their silk. This route was eventually called "Silkroad". Things were pretty much okay until Western Roma collapsed and the Islam war exploded. Suddenly the Silkroad was a place where bandits and other sects attacked one another to get the precious silk and treasures carried by the merchants from China to Roma.
That's where you step in. You can either be a Merchant and be the one travelling the roads in search of wealth and fortune. You can be a Hunter and protect the caravans or you can become a Thief and become the bandits that the townsfolk have come to fear.
Silkroad promises to be one of the biggest games for 2007, especially here in the Philippines. Take note that this game is FREE-TO-PLAY and you will be able to play with gamers outside of the Philippines. This is definitely a unique journey for those who dare step into the world of Silkroad Online.
To those who don't have fast internet to download the client - fear not because Level-up will be rolling out the CDs to internet cafes this March. We will also be giving away CDs in our events and you might even see it in certain magazines.
