Lost Ark is indeed heading to China, a fact announced at Tencent Games Carnival 2015. Besides debuting a new trailer, representatives from Smilegate and Tencent Games took to the stage to answer a few questions from media about testing time-frames, other platforms, and more.
Testing for Lost Ark is currently anticipated to start in early 2016 in Korea and mid-year in China, and the devs are focusing on avoiding repetitive content. Anyone who prefers console or mobile games also have a chance to see the title on those platforms; the representatives stated that these other platforms are being seriously considered, but for now the developers are “concentrating on optimizing and running the South Korean and China servers.”
Check out the Chinese trailer below, and feel free to poke around the new website.
