More countries to receive game access and official server support
- Oceania, South America and Estonia have been added to the “Lost Ark’s” list of supported regions
- There will be no dedicated servers for Oceania despite the additional support
- South American servers will be shut down in the next closed beta test
More countries will be able to jump into “Lost Ark” after the game is released thanks to additional server support provided by Amazon Games Studio, the company behind the Western release of the hugely popular Korean MMO.
Three new regions will be added to the current list of “Lost Ark’s” supported zones, with Estonia, Latin America and Oceania joining the ranks. These regions will introduce a combined total of 34 additional countries that will have access to “Lost Ark” when the game launches, according to a report. official developer statement.
The developers are currently examining how exactly these regions will be supported once the servers go live, as the large number of newly added regions could potentially impact the launch schedule initially set by Amazon Games Studios for the game.
The full list of new countries includes:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Costa Rica
- The Dominican Republic
- El Salvador
- New Zealand
- St. LUCIA,
- Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
- Saint Kitts and Nevis
- Trinidad and Tobago
Unfortunately, there will be no localizations for the native languages of these newly added regions. The language selection of “Lost Ark’s” will only support English, Spanish, German and French.
However, out-of-game outlets such as stores, websites, and customer service will be adjusted to provide language support for Brazilian Portuguese and Latin American Spanish. The implementation of these languages will be announced at a later date.
“Lost Ark” will now have dedicated servers for the South American region alongside the original servers from North America and Central Europe. There are currently no plans to add dedicated servers for Australia and New Zealand, but Amazon Games Studios is currently evaluating the possibility of adding regional server support for these countries.
A closed beta version of “Lost Ark” is currently scheduled for November 4-11. Eligible players from all authorized regions will be able to join the beta if they have received an invite. However, the South American servers will not be operational during this test, so players in the region will have to play on the North American servers instead.
