Now you can be a raider of the lost ark in Amazon Games’ latest jaunt, Lost Ark. But, of course, if you’re reading this from Korea, Japan or Russia then you’re probably one of the millions of players already enjoying the new MMORPG. Those in North America and Europe, however, don’t have much longer to wait.

Developed by Smilegate RPG, whose parent company developed CROSSFIRE, their collaboration with Amazon Games will bring a localised version to the west, with translations to English, French, German, and Spanish.

Lost Ark is a classic MMORPG experience replete with 15 distinct hero classes. A deep combat system allows for unique combinations and adaptable skillsets using an innovative Tripod System. As the name suggests, players are tasked with finding the fabled Lost Ark. Let's hope that it won’t have the same face-melting properties as the Indiana Jones version.

“With Lost Ark, Smilegate RPG has created an incredibly deep online experience that players will return to for years to come; it is our privilege to bring this action RPG to new audiences in North America and Europe for the first time,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. “Amazon Games is committed to releasing the highest quality games for our players, whether we’re developing projects with our internal teams or publishing games from the best developers in the world, like Smilegate RPG. Lost Ark is the first of many exciting titles that Amazon Games will be publishing.”

“We’ve been working closely with Amazon Games on Lost Ark, and continuing to grow our player base in the West,” said Chi Won Gil, CEO, Smilegate RPG. “Amazon Games is perfectly positioned to introduce Lost Ark to a new pool of players and grow that relationship with them through Amazon channels like Twitch and Prime Gaming.”

The Lost Ark MMO is scheduled to be released in North America and Europe in autumn of this year. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited about this one from the stunning trailer alone.
