A Sneak Peak of the New Lost Ark Game
The Lost Ark Game is the newest MMORPG that will prove the superiority of PC over all other platforms when playing the genre. Set for release in the final quarter of the year (November 7), here’s what we know about it so far.
What is the Lost Ark Game?
It is a non-targeting MMO with gameplay similar to Path of Exile. Instead of having a third-person or first-person view, however, the game has a fixed perspective camera. Features unique to the game include building your own ship, sailing around, and the Tripod System. There are other MMO staples such as a coliseum for PvP, raids, and multiple classes to play as.
The world is under attack from a demon army. Kazeros, the leader, has opened the Chaos Gate to invade the human world. Because of the chaos, the army’s creating, everybody’s thrown into a panicked state and nobody is stepping up to find a way to defeat them. They’ve forgotten the legend of the Ark, which defeated the demon general the first time. You, as the player, will have to find the pieces of the lost Ark and defeat the demon army.
Your adventure will take you across the world. You’ll encounter friends, sail across seas, walk the continents, and find treasures—all in your quest to find the Lost Ark!

The Tripod System
This system improves on the basic skills of your character class by chaining or combining their effects. For example, take a skill that fires an elemental bolt, one that makes things explode, and one that shoots multiple projectiles. Combining these three skills through the system will result in multiple elemental bolts that will explode.
These combinations can be changed and experimented on, so you’d be remiss if you didn’t try out as many as you can! Each class also has different combinations of skills. As such, it gives a sense of variety and novelty so you don’t just keep doing the same thing again and again. It also provides an opportunity for varied strategies for those tough-to-beat enemies.
A gameplay trailer provides the footage of seven classes, the Battle Master, Devil Hunter, Arcana, Warlord, Infighter, Summoner, and Berserker. The first uses fists and enhances her attacks with elemental effects. Devil Hunters use guns and his skills revolve around them. Aracanas use the power of the arcana to fuel their attacks. Warlords use a huge sword-like weapon that can fire chains as well as explosive rounds. In-fighters work similarly to Battle Masters, though with a pointed focus on close range tactics. Summoners call upon creatures to aid them in battle. The last, Berserker, channels his rage in his attacks, resulting in an avalanche of fire and ground-shattering explosions.
What’s even better is that there are even more to come in future updates!

When can I play?
The game counts its Open Beta as the official launch, and it’s on November 7. Unfortunately, for Western fans, it will only be available in South Korea. There is no word regarding a worldwide or western release for now. You’re better off waiting for that unless you want to jump through hoops just to play the game in Korean.
Looking forward to the Game
While it may be a while before the Western world can play this game, the trailers of the Lost Ark Game do a good job of presenting it in an interesting manner. The Tripod System is also a new take on improving or upgrading skills. Combine that with impressive graphics and epic story, this is one game to keep on the watch list. Then again, it’s probably too early to pass any kind of judgment on it. Much like any upcoming title, we can only wait and see how it fares.
