The final Lost Ark closed beta is about to begin in South Korea. Smilegate's hugely anticipated MMORPG enters this beta phase in May 23, running through June 3. A new blog post details some of the novelties for this beta.

First of all, there's a more in-depth relationship system with the NPCs. In the previous beta, players complained about the difficulty of getting favor from the NPCs, and this was only a way to get a reward. Now, there are several stages of friendship and emotional responses are included, such as unique quests where an NPC shares more about him/her with the player. You can increase your friendship level by doing things such as offering gifts, playing musical instruments and expressing emotions. Smilegate hints at the possibility of a “special relationship”, but I won't go as far as saying “marriage” without any kind of confirmation.

Here are some of the NPCs that you can befriend:

I would also like to feature the graphical improvements that Lost Ark players will be able to see for themselves. The comparison images below show quite a shocking jump in the overall quality, taking it closer to some of the environments that we saw in the earlier Lost Ark trailers. Have a look:

Mighty impressive, don't you think? It even features some gigantic cock-a-doodle-doos! Sadly, Lost Ark is still without any kind of English release officially planned, but it will eventually happen. It's just too good to pass.
