Closed beta dates
- The closed beta will take place from Thursday 4 November to Thursday 11 November 2021. More details on schedules coming soon.
Since September, we’ve been working with Smilegate RPG to prepare for its closed beta and launch. In particular, we have integrated functional systems into the game, tested new versions, etc. With so many changes, we’ll need your help to make sure everything runs smoothly. In other words, the beta version is coming soon! We’re looking forward to releasing it on November 4th. Here’s a look at our work over the past month and what you can test out in a bit.
The closed beta will run from November 4-11, with servers in North America and Europe.
If you paid attention to our previous Closed Beta announcement, you might have noticed that we’ve added a few more days. Some players told us that the initially planned duration was too short, so we extended the beta to make it last a full week. Although only a few days have passed, we hope that this extra time will allow you to test out the new content shown below.
During the closed beta, you will be able to share, record and broadcast any content or gameplay from the beta, as long as you comply with Content Usage Policy. However, keep in mind that this is a beta version and not the final version of Lost Ark, as it was presented when it was released. Since changes and updates will be made between the release of the Closed Beta and the release of the game, the recorded content may not be accurate or up-to-date. If you are creating content and you are interested in Lost Ark content creation software, you can learn more on the dedicated page.
Closed beta priorities and new content tested
The beta will focus on testing the technical aspects of the game, such as server stability, technical integration, and extensive bugs, but you’ll also discover a lot of new content and help us test it.
You’ll see these additions right from the start of your adventure, along with the introductions. They are designed to provide you with information about your character’s class, as well as to speed up and standardize the game’s tutorial phase. It is especially useful if you want to try your hand at multiple classes (like the new basic for military class applicants.!).
Once in the game, you’ll have new ways to pass the time, whether it’s quietly cultivating your stronghold or cruising to distant lands. And new territories are not limited to islands: the entire continent of Rohendel, as well as dungeon-type content up to the Spectrum Palace, will open its doors to you.
If you prefer to level up and aim for the end game, you should find your account as well. Level caps will increase to 55 for the character level and 100 for the expedition level. You will be able to test more abyss dungeons, chaos dungeons, and ranger raids. In addition, Power Pass will also be available during the closed beta. This is a tool that allows you to directly upgrade a new character to level 50, if you have already reached that level with another character. Thus, you will be able to bring a second character in the advanced content, allowing you to experience different styles of play.
We will also start testing the artesian economy, including in-game stores. Purchases of real coins will not be allowed at this time, but each beta tester will receive 40,000 Royal Crystals to use during the beta to purchase features. We’ll provide more information about the monetization model and pre-beta systems. As for the technical aspects that will be tested, the closed beta will include voice dialing options, as well as new accessibility features, such as light sensitivity and color blindness modes. We look forward to getting as much feedback as possible about these systems during the beta, so if you’re testing them out, please let us know your thoughts.
To participate in the CSS beta, you can registration on our website and you may have the opportunity to become a tester or purchase a file Founder’s Pack To ensure you have access to the trial version. We’ll be providing more demo information, along with a full list of content changes, at the end of the month, to prepare everyone to explore Archesia. Do not miss it!
Lost Ark will be available in France in 2022.
