Amazon and Smilegate have revealed “Part One” of Lost Ark’s 2023 Roadmap.
Following December’s Wreck the Halls update, we now have an early glimpse of “what’s coming in early 2023” for the people of Arkesia.
The update has been split into months for easy access, confirming that alongside the Sorcerer event in January there will also be a Quality of Life update with unspecified improvements to guild systems, guild PvP, and Una’s quests.
February marks the first anniversary of the game, and to celebrate, you can visit – and fight for – the Rowen continent, but only once you’ve reached item level 1445. At the end of Rowen world quests, “a faction can be chosen for open-world PvP”.
In March we’re getting a new type of PvP activity, the Tulubik battlefield, which introduces 48v48 players and a battle for bases, secondary objectives and “dozens of players fighting on the other team” as well as one more ” “big batch” of QoL updates and balance changes.
Finally (for now) a new advanced class will be introduced in April – The Artist – as well as the Brelshaza Hard Mode and the Hanumatan Guardian Raid.
“Capable of tactical versatility with her powers of illusion, the artist specializes in supporting her team,” explains Smilegate, confirming that her class identity is Moonfall and Sunrise.
“Using her magical brush and flowing ink, the artist can either attack enemies directly or summon sacred beasts by painting them. While the performer’s attack power is on the low side, she is able to support allies heavily and save them from danger with her powers of illusion – making her a welcome member of any faction.”
And what comes after April?
“We look forward to watching players experience the unique events, explore new parts of Arkesia, battle in new PvP game modes, and prepare for the challenging Brelshaza Hard Mode experience in the months to come,” teases Team. “In the meantime, stay tuned to our website, social channels, and release notes for the full list of new content, store updates, events, bug fixes, and more in the coming months.”
Lost Ark’s celebratory Wreck the Halls update is now live. Alongside the introduction of the Summoner Advanced class – which brings the MMORPG a “powerful variety of water, lightning, earth and other unique attacks” – we will also meet the “cunning and ruthless” commander of the Phantom Legion and a new one get Guardian Raid, which also takes on Caliligos, the “Master of Lightning”.
And don’t forget that the aforementioned cast of familiar faces from The Witcher are heading to Lost Ark, including Geralt, Yennefer, Triss, Dandelion, and Ciri. Players in South Korea, the home country of Lost Ark, can play this crossover now, while those elsewhere can explore the area in January 2023.
