Where Art Thou Lost Ark Online?
It’s been months, MONTHS, since we’ve heard any news about the western release. Don’t get me wrong, Smilegate just recently concluded their second closed beta phase, adding new feature and what not, but all that means nothing to me unless we hear a western release date for the game.
In case you’ve forgotten about this game, here’s a crash course:
Lost Ark, a 3D massively-multiplayer online role-playing game offers an immersive action-centric playing style and adopts a non-targeting combat system and a dynamic quarter-view angle to maximize the game experience.
The whole world is in chaos from the attack of Kazeros’ demon army, as Kazeros opens the Chaos Gate with his six legions to invade the human world. Like a legend that exists in myths, the world has become a place where there are no heroes and everyone has forgotten about the Ark that defeated the demons in the past. Now, the player must venture the vast world of the Lost Ark to gather the pieces and go against the demon army. The one force that can stand up against the demons! The Lost Ark.
I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been craving for a good MMO for quite some time now and ever since I first saw Lost Ark Online in action, I knew I had to play the game. As I’ve mentioned before, Smilegate completed their second beta phase and are getting ready for their third one. However, I want to know if this beautiful game is still coming to the west. I really don’t want to go through another Phantasy Star 2 phase. I’m still recovering for that betrayal.
I know that in the early stages of this game’s reveal, Smilegate DID express and somewhat confirm their interest in bringing it to the western market, but when exactly is anyone’s guess.
The game looks fantastic and it only gets more impressive when you realize that it hasn’t even come out yet. All I hope for now is that the game doesn’t end up becoming a P2W game, as I’m quite interested in trying out the PvP aspect more than the PvE. I mean I’m gonna complete the story of course but most of my time will be spent at the Colosseum in combat. Honestly I just wanted to talk about this game again and share my thoughts on it.
Hopefully, we’ll get a trailer that once and for all gives us a confirmation that the game will set sails west soon. Let me know your thoughts one Lost Ark Online in the comments below.
