They got it in just under the wire as January closes in a few days, but it's here! The Lost Ark January Team Update blog post walks players through a TON of items that will be included in the launch of Smilegate and Amazon Games' ARPG in just a few short weeks.

If you're planning to play at launch, you'll want to take a look at the full post as it addresses not only additions to the game, but also answers common player questions that arose from the previous beta tests.

Character and Guild naming restrictions, Founder's Pack questions, skippable early cutscenes...it's all detailed here.

Of particular note though, Korean voice overs will actually be a launch option if you really just didn't like the English voice over work in previous beta tests. You'll have the option to use English subtitles as well. This will all come through a free DLC pack that will be available at launch on Steam. You will not have an option for Korean subtitles though.

On the content side of things, Lost Ark's western launch will include Tier 3 content including gear and the necessary dungeons to be able to progress that gear. The combat level cap has also been increased for launch to 60. Not ALL tier 3 content will be available at launch, though. Some of it will come post launch in updates so that the team can set the pace for in-game progression.

If you happen to be a Steam achievement hunter, you'll be delighted to know that Lost Ark will have 173 Steam achievements at launch. Many of these will coincide with in-game achievements, but there will be MANY other in-game achievements to hunt down once you've completed the Steam versions.

It's a lengthy post, but it seems to be mostly good news for those of you excited for launch! Give it a read.
