Lost Ark Passes 20 Million Players

Lost Ark has amassed over 20 million players so far, half of which came from its western release last month. Western publisher Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG Developer Announce that over 4.7 million new players joined within three days of the release of Lost Ark across the Americas, Europe, and Australia, and that number has now grown to over 10 million. The game was launched in South Korea back in 2019. Where it has amassed a huge following long before its Western release. But Amazon Games Vice President Christoph Hartmann said the action RPG-MMO is just getting started: “The hype around Lost Ark from around the world is rapidly gaining momentum. As evidenced by the growing number of players from around the world.

“Together with Smilegate, we are committed to supporting our growing community with a robust update roadmap in the coming years.”

Lost Ark got off to a fast start in the west. With an Early Access release and became one of the most played games on Steam. Even before the official launch of the free-to-play game. As the official release date approached February 11th. It climbed even higher to become the second most-played Steam game of all time by a number of concurrent games.

The development teams told IGN last week that they were “absolutely shocked and thrilled by the reception”.And said they intend to keep up the pace. To that end, Lost Ark will receive regular updates starting with a March 2022 update that will add new quests. Islands, and cutscenes to the game. In our 8/10 review, IGN said, “Lost Ark is an extremely generous free-to-play ARPGMMO that draws heavily from Diablo, including a hackneyed tale of humans and Heaven teaming up against demons.”
