Following the successful launch of Lost Ark in North America, the developers announced that more content will be coming at a regular cadence starting in March with new story and raid content.
Lost Ark was released in South Korea back in 2019 and has a head start on content that has yet to be released in the North American version. The developers say there is a “wealth of content present in the Korean version that has yet to make its way to the western shores of Arkesia.”
However, this content will be released starting this month when a new storyline and raid will be released, as well as changes and fixes.
First, the new storyline will introduce new quests, islands, and cinematics to Lost Ark. The quest will follow a cast of new and returning characters and will focus on the Sidereals and the legendary Kadan, the first guardian slayer.
Players will need to complete Feiton and the quests “Yorn – Let There Be Light,” “Whispering Islet – Start of Our Story,” and “Illusion Bamboo Island – End of the Trials,” before being able to accept the new quests.
The second major content addition in March will be the new Abyss Raid, Argos. This end-game raid is similar to Guardians raid where players need to work together to defeat the Guardian before time runs out. The eight-party content will fight a much larger boss through three phases and will drop a reward which can be claimed once a week.
Argos will be available at the Abyss Raid Statue located across Lost Ark’s different major cities.
Lost Ark is a dungeon-crawler MMO that’s currently free-to-play on PC. At launch Lost Ark quickly became Steam’s second-most played game of all time and it looks like there’ll be plenty of content coming down in the future to keep players busy.
