The Witcher 3 will be the focus of a DLC for Lost Ark, according to developer Smilegate, starting with the South Korean edition.
Lost Ark has been a reasonably consistent provider of fresh material for an MMORPG that has been around for almost three years to keep its users engaged.
Lost Ark has actually been a huge success in South Korea since becoming live in late 2019. This is despite the fact that the game was just made available to western gamers earlier this year.
The desire of game creator Smilegate to maintain the experience enjoyable for both novice and experienced players accounts for a portion of this.
In other cases, Smilegate is even prepared to go over and above and work with other well-known game brands, such as The Witcher.
Witcher 3 DLC
In a recent summer showcase event, Smilegate unveiled a number of new upgrades that would be coming to Lost Ark, particularly the South Korean version of the game. These improvements range from a brand-new damager class called Aeromancer to specific DLC centred on CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3. The cooperation is predicted to be available on Korean servers in the winter, but it’s not yet clear if the western version will even be given access to it.
Sadly, Smilegate gave no indication of how Geralt’s arrival in Arkesia will be received. The announcement was brief and only confirmed The Lost Ark‘s brand as The Witcher 3’s successor. Some fans are hoping for a brand-new Witcher class, while others anticipate skins inspired by The Witcher and even a quest to go along with the DLC.
Although Lost Ark was first released in the west earlier this year, it was initially released in South Korea in 2019. The western version has largely kept up with the South Korean version in terms of upgrades, but it still lags behind.
It won’t be the first time Geralt of Rivia has appeared in a different video game series; when Soul Calibur 6 was published in 2018, he was included as a fighter.
Fans of the Witcher will probably have to wait a bit before they can return to The Continent, except for the upcoming single-player Gwent game, as the next mainstream instalment has only recently begun pre-production.
One can only hope that the western version of Lost Ark keeps up with its South Korean equivalent for the time being, though. Updates have been sent to the western version more slowly because the game hasn’t been available that long, but they have generally been accurate and comparable to the South Korean version so far.
