How to play Lost Ark Russia

lost ark ru.png

Lost Ark Russia has finally launched its Open Beta Open Beta last October 27, 2019 15:00 MSK.Β  I will guide you step by step on how to play it.


1. How/Where can I play Lost Ark?
There are currently two servers right now, Lost Ark Korean Server and Lost Ark Russia Server.Β  I will only cover on how to play in the Russian server since it is less strict there.Β  There are a lot of guides on the internet on how to play in Korea.

3. How about Lost ark NA/SEA/Global etc.?
No news yet for NA/SEA/Global.

4. Why should I play Lost Ark?
It is a promising game and getting access to it via other country is worth the trouble to test until it comes out on NA/SEA/Global.

5. Is Lost Ark Russia region locked?
Yes, that is why we need to use a VPN. Articles online suggest that it is not strict in Russia compared to Korea when it comes to other people playing from different regions.Β  That is why I might personally play in the Russian server.
