The Action RPG genre is one that has few entries, but still finds itself crowded despite its relative sparsity. Could Lost Ark Online be worth your interest? Find out after the jump.
From Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo III and to Grinding Gear Game's Path of Exile, the Action RPG has a few heavyweights, but relatively few high-profile releases in recent years. However, Lost Ark Online looks to join the ranks of these titles with a few interesting additions of its own.
The game itself is being created in Korea, by developers called Smilegate. As of yet, there is no confirmed release date for anywhere outside of Korea, of which it is supposed to be released in 2015.
As the main webpage is written in Korean (who would have thought?) information is somewhat sparse, but what can be gleaned from the official website and other places around the internet is still enough to get us at TechRaptor intrigued.
The game has 18 classes, of which named so far are the Battle Master, Devil Hunter, Arcana, Warlord, Infighter, Summoner, and the Beserker.
The game is an MMORPG, so the game will automatically feature players working together for the greater good, with a world map that entices players to explore 'Hidden Quests and Areas.' You can also drink and gamble, which is of course mandatory in any MMO worth its salt, along with the opportunity to raid, dungeon, and fight players in PVP that features 1v1 or 3v3 battles.
For those who wish for more information and screenshots, feel free to check out this page.
For those who wish to see gameplay of the title, check out both of the trailers that have been released below. Both of these trailers total nearly a half hour of total footage, which should be more than enough to get you interested.
