Back in September, Smilegate RPG and Amazon Games decided to delay the launch of Lost Ark, giving a vague new release window of sometime in “early 2022”. Now, the devs behind the upcoming fantasy MMOARPG – that’s a massively multiplayer role-player with some extra ‘action’ thrown in – have unveiled the Lost Ark release date at tonight’s Game Awards show – well, release dates, as those who order a particular version will get to jump in a few days early.
Amazon and Smilegate have announced that the Lost Ark release date is February 11, 2022 on PC via Steam. For those who purchase a Founder’s Pack on Amazon.com or Steam, the dive-in date will instead come on February 8, giving them a three-day head start. There are four different kinds of Founder’s Packs available, which range from the cheapest, Bronze ($14.99 / £13.20), to Platinum, which will set you back $99.99 / £87.99 on Steam.
In case the name is unfamiliar to you, Lost Ark is a fantasy MMO that will appeal to WoW and Diablo fans alike, which has already been a big success in countries like Korea, Japan, and Russia. Amazon Games is helping to bring it to many more markets, publishing it in North America, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania.
