if you know anything at all about Lost Ark you will (probably) know that the game’s original Korean version has been a) hugely popular and b) has tons of content we are yet to see here in West.
Some of this new content is about to start making its way here and we now have a roadmap of sorts promised that will highlight what is coming to Lost Ark in the coming weeks and months.
Lost Ark March update
The Lost Ark Match update doesn’t yet list what kind of bugs, balances, and generical redecorating will go on but we are promised a comprehensive list of release notes closer to when the update actually launches.
Story episode – Kadan
This new story episode will include Isteri and Illusion Bamboo islands. The devs explain:
“Experience a new storyline, complete with its own quests, new islands, and cinematic moments. These quests will include a cast of new and returning characters as you learn more about the Sidereals and search for the legendary Kadan, the first Guardian slayer, in your journey to find the final Ark. Players will need to have completed Feiton, alongside completing the following quests: ‘Yorn – Let There Be Light’, ‘Whispering Islet – Start of Our Story, and ‘Illusion Bamboo Island – End of the Trials’ as a prerequisite before embarking on the new end-game questlines. Both Isteri & Illusion Bamboo islands are recommended for players at item level 1100.”
Abyss Raid – Argos
A new end-game activity is coming to Lost Ark in the form of Abyss Raids which the dev team explains as follows:
“Encounter an entirely new end-game activity: Abyss Raids. Similar to Guardian Raids, players will need to work together to defeat a Guardian before the time expires, with a limited number of revives available to the party. Abyss Raids will pit eight players against a Guardian- but these are bigger, badder, and much more difficult than your average Guardian.
Players will need to progress through three distinct phases as they work together to vanquish their titanic foe. In the three phases, the Guardian will grow more powerful with different mechanics and attack patterns. Each phase has its own rewards (collectable once a week), and different item level requirements for players to participate.”
So plenty to come then to keep us busy in Lost Arkm we will bring you an update on the release notes in full when they arrive. This looks like an update Lost Arks fans will enjoy, however, so watch this space.
