Lost Ark will be out this Friday, though anyone can get things rolling by pre-downloading the game as of today. To count down the days through launch, Amazon also has a list of launch week events, “Ark Week”, that begin today as well.
Pre-download for the game will be available to all, whether they bought a Founder’s Pack or not. though the game’s Head Start, beginning tomorrow, will only be open to those who bought one. Yet anyone can join in the launch week streams, which include previews, a look at the game’s lore and gameplay, a trivia event, and many opportunities for prizes and drops.
First up, today from 5-7pm PST will be a lore show. The lore stream will take us into the origins of Arkesia, when the demon Kazeros was beaten back by people banding together and using the Ark. Well, some things you think are gone are just waiting for the day when they can emerge stronger and seek vengeance. This is where we are when Lost Ark begins, so the lore stream will bring a thorough introduction of Arkesia and what everyone can expect.
On Tuesday, watch as streamers play through the game’s starter zones from 5-11pm PST. There will be a Q&A in the chat as well as tips and trivia info as well. Wednesday you might get to see some of that trivia come back int play as it will be “Fight Night”, described as “Lost Ark with trivia”. Thursday will bring some PvP and show off some of what to expect.
Friday is launch day, so the stream on that day will be WWFest from 5-7pm PST. The lineup for this one is a celebration to mark the launch for all players. There will be a performance from Bea Miller & Run the Jewels.
Lost Ark will open its virtual doors to all players on Friday at 9am PST. All streams will take place over at Crown. For more on Lost Ark’s Ark Week events, see the announcement here.
