Lost Ark website live, Korean beta schedule revealed

Lost Ark 2

Smilegate has opened the Lost Ark closed beta teaser website, but it is only accessible to South Korean players. Worse still, if you were planning on taking a chance at playing this game soon, the closed beta requires a Korean cellphone and a Korean Social Security Number, so this should be a tough one for most of you.

The Korean closed beta recruitment phase runs from August 3 to August 21, with the selected players being announced on August 22. The first Lost Ark beta is a short one, running from August 24 to August 28, and there’s no word on an NDA, so we’ll have to see if players are free to capture videos and share impressions.

Lost Ark is already signed for China by Tencent and a western release is likely after the Korean version is well under its way.

Here are some classes that may or may not be present in the closed beta.

      We’ll do our best, can’t wait for a new trailer!

      As for F2P, can’t say for sure right now, things are uncertain and some publishers don’t know what to do (see Atlas Reactor, the f2p-b2p-kindafreeagain game).

      My personal opinion is that i hope its not f2p. Anything but really. F2p always ruins it, there is always so much more greed and ‘money nagging’ when its not either b2p or sub. So personally, I hope it doesn’t turn out that way lol

        I kinda agree with your opinion on F2P games. But there are some exception, like Path of Exile for example, who is one of the best game i’ve ever played and its f2p too

          True, Path of Exile is that exception in a sea of shit.

    I too hope we get a Western Release. Looks a lot of fun and stylish.
