Classes, Business Model & Gameplay Trailer

Classes, Business Model & Gameplay Trailer  -

The Lost Ark team hosted a media conference this week that revealed some new information about the forthcoming game including, most notably, a bit about its potential business model. While many players have championed a subscription model, the team feels that this is not the best course for the game but is also cognizant of the fact that any type of cash shop would need to be carefully managed.

Since the 2014 G-STAR, the subscription model was what we heard the most from the users, but we are afraid to say that it will be difficult for us. We are planning to choose a micro-transaction model. Many users wanted the subscription model, but we saw the reason for that was that they were sick of the P2W model of some games. There are many employees in our team, who love the RPG game genre, so we are very aware of this problem. We are not going to choose this kind of micro-transactions. We will make a proper BM, so the players will be able to enjoy our game. We don’t want to disappoint them either. I just want the users to know that we are trying very hard.

The conference attendees also learned that there will be six base classes, each with three advanced tracks. Ten are already either in, or have completed, development.

Check out the Lost Ark video to see some game play action before heading to our portal page to learn more about the game.


Thanks, BlueTurtle13!
