Lost Ark has shot to the top of Steam's most-played charts and now holds the service's second-largest concurrent player peak, of 1.23 million players.But this popularity has also brought problems - meaning, server queues - and developer Smilegate has announced a somewhat unexpected solution.
Nowhere is this more prevalent than Europe, where Lost Ark appears to be much more popular than North America and other regions. To help deal with this, Amazon is not just adding a new batch of servers, it's adding an entirely new region within Europe.
This will be separate from the Central-EU server region, so any bonuses from Founder’s Packs or balances won’t carry over. The one-time Founder’s Pack bonus duplicate claim is also applicable to this new EU region. There’s no timing yet on when this new region will become available, but the joint effort between Amazon and Smilegate RPG is in process, aiming to roll this out ASAP.
"This is the only way to accommodate more players in Europe," the developer wrote in a blog post last night, "so it's a joint effort between Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG. Rest assured we are working 24/7 until it's live.
"While we understand lengthy queue times may persist, we will need time to ensure everything is set up to be in top shape to help accommodate all players to get in game. We'll share an update on exact timings as soon as possible."
