To give players a taste of the isometric action-packed MMORPG Lost Ark that’s soon to launch in Russia, Mail.ru has released a demo version of the game. The demo allows players to try out the character creation, main story missions, PvP arenas, castle siege, the training areas and other starter content. Only 4 of the 12 game classes are playable.
Mail.Ru, the Russian Internet giant known for e-mail portals, social networks (ВКонтакте or VK), and online game publishing has been announced as the designated publisher for the new action MMO Lost Ark.
While game developer Smilegate has signed a contract with Mail.Ru, no solid dates have been announced yet as far as an actual release schedule is concerned. However, we know that closed beta testing is scheduled for 2019. Sign ups for betas and Founders Packs (Early Access Kits) are already up on the official Russian Lost Ark site.
