Smilegate has released a roadmap of content that will come over the next few months to the new Korean action MMORPG Lost Ark. The game is growing in popularity in Korea and has recently added the new Lace Master class. No new information has been given about English servers or an English release yet.
Smilegate has announced the latest class addition to Lost Ark. The close-range damage dealer dubbed “Lance Master” is the first class to arrive since the game’s launch in Korea back in November of 2018. The heavy-hitting, tornado summoning lance wielder is able to switch between two stances to form different styles of combos.
Lance Master will arrive and wreck havoc in the Korean servers on April 24th. Players can take part in a pre-registration event to obtain special consumables and other bonus items.
