Amazon Games is locating one of South Korea’s most exciting MMOs, Lost Ark

zA

Amazon has said Lost Ark’s English version will be releasing this fall, but you can register here for a beta that will take place later this summer.  It’s really fun to see the action of Diablo 3 slotted into a traditional MMO, where you’re running dungeons and raids with friends. There are also a lot of fascinating features outside of combat, including a kind of relationship system with NPCs where you can woo them for special rewards, the ability to build and sail boats across an uncharted ocean. You can even settle on your own island and turn it into a little getaway. 

I first heard of Lost Ark years ago when it was still very new. Back then, the only way to play was to pay very sketchy websites a lot of money in exchange for a Korean phone number which is required to register for the game (since phone numbers are tied to your real-life identity in Korea). Despite having to navigate a game client that was entirely in Korean, I ended up losing a few weeks of my life to Lost Ark. It’s also interesting to see Amazon get into publishing and localization. It makes sense that it would leverage its internet infrastructure to run a live service game, and maybe it’ll have more luck as a publisher than it has developing games in-house so far.

Source Lost Ark will be available this year, and you can sign up for the beta here.
