The online ARPG Lost Ark Korean beta has set a date; the game will start closed beta testing in August.
The game will let interested players add their name to the pool starting on August 2nd with the closed beta beginning on August 24th. Whether Lost Ark will make its way to players in the West is still undecided, as publisher Smilegate wants to hammer out the details for the Korean version before they consider bringing the title to a global release of any kind. Those who are interested in Lost Ark can watch a gameplay trailer posted by Steparu below.
The classes in the game definitely have a level of flash! Lost Ark looks like one of the most explosive ARPGs to come out. However, it’s too soon to know if the desire for the title is big enough for Smilegate to bring it out anywhere but Korea and China. We’ll have to just sit and wait like everyone else.
