The fact that Lost Ark is running a transmedia-synergistic crossover event with The Witcher franchise is not news; we’ve known about it since before the holidays, and indeed, Korean players have already had a taste. But western players will be excited to know they’ve got to wait only one more week for their chance to work with Geralt and friends to “uncover the mystery of the mystifying, interdimensional vortex disrupting the festivities of White Wolf Haven Island,” as the patch rolls out a week from tomorrow.
“Lost Ark players can access the all-new event island by speaking with the Guild Investigator in major cities,” Amazon says. “Throughout the event, players can take on a series of story and daily quests and earn items like Witcher Potions, 3 Jukebox songs, a new card set featuring 5 Witcher characters and more. Witcher themed cosmetics can be found in the in-game store, along with a unique Twitch drop with Witcher-inspired Mokoko skins.”
It all launches January 18th and runs through February 22nd. And if The Witcher isn’t your jam or jelly, know that Amazon is also promising “improvements to Quests & Una’s Tasks, exchanging materials, options to favorite engravings, Guild system improvements and more” as part of the same January release.
