Lost Ark: release time and date for all regions, system requirements, servers and prices

The Smilegate and Amazon Games title arrives on February 11 on PC after its passage through the Asian market. This is all you need to know to play it.

Amazon Games and Smilegate are launching Lost Ark, their MMORPG with isometric view, this February 11 in North America, Europe, Latin America and Oceania. After its successful launch in Asia, this free-to-play title set in a fantasy world also wants to take the game by storm in the West, where it will be available with early access from Tuesday, February 8 (you can check all the editions, schedules and prices here). In this article we detail all the information regarding servers, restart times and complete list of servers in each region (with their nickname).

Versions and prices of Lost Ark

One of the particularities of Lost Ark is that it is a free-to-play experience. This means that unlike other MMORPGs, you don't have to pay a subscription. However, there are microtransactions, with which players can get skins, crystals and supply crates.

Although the game arrives this Friday, February 11, players who want to get in early can purchase the Founder's Pack which grants them early access. As a Founder, North American players can start three days early, on Tuesday, February 8 starting at 12pm EST. These versions include downloadable content, cosmetic content and all kinds of benefits, in addition to the three-day early access. Founder's Packs can be purchased both on the Amazon store and through Steam and come in four categories which are detailed below:

When will the Lost Ark servers be activated?

Lost Ark Early Access begins this February 8, 2022 at 12:00 (EST). Lost Ark servers have restart times (daily, weekly, boss, event, etc.) and depend on each region. As explained by Amazon Games, these daily and weekly server restarts will be at 01:00 (or 02:00, depending on daylight savings time and regional hours for each server location) or after scheduled maintenance periods. Nuclear content, such as raids, dungeons and PvP events, will maintain "the most favorable local time applying the following modifications to the 0 hour of each server". These modifications to the 0 hour are as follows:

  • Western U.S.: UTC-7.
  • Eastern U.S.: UTC-4.
