Lost Ark will get its March content update today, the first major content patch after the western game’s release earlier this year. The upcoming major updates are a new abyss raid, a new story chapter, a PvP season for competitive players to participate.
There are also some smaller selections of additions that will appeal to those who are looking for alternative gameplay development that is separate from the main road. New islands are being added to Arkesia’s oceans, along with a new login card and a grand prize mode in which players race against each other for multiple prizes.
The new chapter of the story, in which the player will go out and uncover the secret of some bloke named Kadan, requires you to complete a series of quests first. This includes:
- ‘Let there be light’ quest on Yorn
- ‘Start Our Story’ Quest on Whisper Island
- Quest ‘End of the Trails’ on Illusion Bamboo Island
The new raid content, Abyss Raid, is a challenging new form of PvE content where players take on Guardian Argos through three stages of progressively difficult battles. With each stage having its own weekly loot table and requiring 1370 items to battle, facing Argos is something late-game players will want to do consistently over the coming months.
If PvE isn’t your thing, the first season of competitive PvP is sure to grab your attention. Queuing solo and teaming up with like-minded players who want to reap the rewards of PvP go head-to-head in Death Duel mode in the Proving Grounds. Through winning and losing you will receive an average score for the season, which will provide exclusive rewards for rising above certain milestones.
The last addition is for you the speed out there. The Arkesia Grand Prix is a limited-time event where two teams of seven players go head-to-head in a race around a set track. Modified to remove any advantage gained from class skills, opponents will have to dash towards the target and eat the cake, of course. You can find a new NPC present in any major city who will provide access for about a month, so be sure to drop by and give it a try.
