The reason I'm using "ideally" with regard to the launch date of Lost Ark's free-to-play game is that we already saw players struggling to join Lost Ark Gold in time for its exact Early Access debut.
With congested servers as well as a number of technical issues players waited for a while before they could actually play the MMO. The game is being made available to a much larger player base on Friday it's likely that you'll have to deal with similar issues on servers during that time.
What do we know about other platforms? Well, the developer Smilegate as well as Lost Ark's Western publisher Amazon Games haven't shared any plans to bring the game to Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and an Epic Games store, but given that the title does offer partial controller support through Steam isn't unreasonable to believe that it might someday be available to a wider range of players.
In the end, anyone who is hoping to jump into Lost Ark when it goes free to play on Friday should make a plan to play immediately as it's possible. Otherwise, there's a pretty good chance that you'll need to wait a bit longer to jump in.
Lost Ark is the latest MMO to Lost Ark Power leveling enter the gaming scene . There are thousands of players eagerly embracing the brand new game. The game officially releases on Feb. 11, but players are already enjoying it by gaining early access.
