Great news for those who had their minds blown with that Steparu Lost Ark video last year: The Diablo-esque action RPG may indeed be coming to the west.
In an interview with Worlds Factory, Tripod Studios said that it’s aiming to bring this game out of its home country: “First, we will be launching in the Korean market. In 2015, we are going to proceed with [the closed beta test]. We are considering launching Lost Ark in western market, and the date will be finalized after solidifying the service schedule in Korea.”
The interview goes on to discuss Lost Ark’s many features, including explorable regions, a PvP battleground system, ownable islands, a “broad and extensive” economy, 18 classes, and NPCs who must be won over before you can access their secret adventures. A business model has not been decided as of yet.
If you’re just hearing about Lost Ark for the first time, check out the gameplay trailer after the jump to see what all the fuss is about.
