At the presentation of Summer Game Fest 2021, it was announced that Amazon Games will be the publisher of MMORPG Lost Ark in Europe and North America, and the next day the closed alpha testing phase has already started. It will last until June 16, and only randomly selected users who have submitted an application on the official website can take part.
Since Lost Ark is already available in Russia, thanks to the publisher MY.GAMES, regional restrictions apply to the western version. It’s worth noting that buying a founder’s kit does not guarantee access to alpha – only to a future beta.
Although the game itself is not that new, alpha testing is under the NDA, as it may contain bugs and flaws. Participants are prohibited from sharing screenshots and gameplay videos, as well as streaming.
