It’s a pretty awesome trailer, I’ll give it that. If you’re a fan of ARPGs then Lost Ark from Smilegate has got to be something on your radar. We don’t know very much about gameplay, level/loot grind, and other details yet (the game hasn’t even moved to a testing phase yet) but I say “radar” because a Western release isn’t for sure yet.
Lost Ark is being developed in Korea and while the team behind the project has said they are trying to appeal to a global audience in game, they don’t yet have a publisher lined up for the free-to-play title.
It’s on the table though according to Ji Won-gil, Head of Tripod Studios, in an interview with the Korea Times:
“We tried to depict a background which has both colors of western and eastern cultures to aim at the global market, we will think over how to localize detailed parts of the game to attract foreign users.”
