The Lost Ark closed beta is ramping up on Steam now, but will ship with a server slowdown warning on the first day.

The game team will look to match the success of Amazon’s other major gaming launch – New World – with the entire Lost Ark experience slated for early 2022.

For now, the team wants to test things before they launch, and that means a closed beta.

There are currently two ways to participate in this week’s tests, with most players having to purchase a Founders Pack on Steam.

However, some of those who signed up through the official test site may also get the chance to play through a random selection system.

But the launch comes with a warning regarding the first few hours of the Lost Ark experience on Steam.

Loading tests are in progress, limiting the player experience for those trying to sign up now.

The good news, however, is that this won’t happen until November 4, and the Lost Ark team confirmed earlier this week:

“As we prepare Lost Ark to launch in early 2022, we are excited to welcome players to Arkesia during our Closed Beta test. The focus of Closed Beta is on the technical aspects of the game, such as server stability, technical integrations, and large-scale bug testing.

“You’ll also find plenty of new content for you to experience and help us test. Don’t worry about an NDA – feel free to talk to friends about it and share, record or broadcast your beta content and gameplay.

The test will run on Steam and will begin on November 4 at 9:00 a.m. PT (4:00 p.m. UTC) and close on November 11 at 11:59 a.m. PT (6:59 p.m. UTC) with servers in North America and Europe.

“At the start of the Closed Beta test, we do a load test for a few hours. During those first few hours, each player within a region is sent to a single world.

“We want players to understand that there can be queues depending on how many players log in during the initial loading test.

“This is an intentional part of testing, and we will be expanding worlds as more players come online after the first few hours of load testing are completed to ensure all Closed Beta participants can jump into Arkesia quickly. Thanks for your support and participation.”

So if you’re currently having trouble playing the game the way you hoped, it’ll get easier soon.

For those who may not have heard of it, Lost Ark is a popular free-to-play online game from Seoul-based Smilegate RPG that already has millions of active players in Korea, Russia, and Japan.

Players can now sign up at playlostark.com to play the game on Steam for PC ahead of its official launch in early 2022.
