Lost Ark is a free-to-play, massively multiplayer online action role-playing game (MMOARPG) that immerses players in new lands where they must seek out lost treasures as they battle to reclaim the eternal power and light of the Lost Ark.


Amazon Games collaborated with Smilegate RPG to localize and translate the vast world of Lost Ark, which boasts millions of active players in Korea, Russia, and Japan. With the game’s launch in the West, Amazon Games brings the award-winning RPG to North America, Europe*, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand for the first time, with written and spoken dialogue in English, French, German, and Spanish.


“Together with Smilegate, we are proud to usher in millions of new players around the world to experience Lost Ark,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. “Lost Ark’s unique style of action-packed combat coupled with seemingly endless class customization options opens up nearly infinite new ways to play in a dynamic, ever-changing online universe—there are numerous new realms to discover and resources to compete for in this living fantasy world.”


In Lost Ark, players will forge their own odyssey in the vast and diverse world of Arkesia on their quest to find fragments of the fabled Lost Ark and save the realm from a demonic threat. Featuring 15 distinct hero classes at launch that offer unique customization options and a multitude of combinable and adaptable skill sets, Lost Ark offers players the opportunity to go head-to-head in expert PvP duels, confront their enemies in epic battles, or set sail to explore new regions. Players can team up with allies, or experience the world solo, as they explore dangerous dungeons, engage in epic raids, and even explore and develop their own islands.


Lost Ark is rated ESRB M (Mature), and is available for download on Steam.
