Since it's now in beta, Steparu got in as usual and made some videos.
Visuals are amazing, gameplay looks to be typical Diablo type game but MMO, looks to have a lot of in game cinematics. Probably very far from release over here, but looks promising...worse case it will be a nice distraction at some point.
Not going to lie, after playing around with POE/D3/Grim Dawn having never been much of a ARPG in the past, really looking forward to this or MU Legends to focus in on as a long term time investment to supplement my Smite play. Single player games just don't do it for me any more outside of Disgaea !!
I thought last i read that Lost Ark wasn't confirmed for a US release in their roadmap or did that change? Any word yet on any P2W model?
Yeah it is, it just plain ridiculous how beautiful it looks.
There was CBT2 recently, and tons of gameplay video were put on YouTube, and I am a bit worried about the gameplay, at least the leveling outdoor area look ridiculously easy, with extremely dumb mob AI.
It looks like the end game dungeons have different difficulty levels.
Then I remember that it's an MMO, and not just an ARPG...so the gameplay difficulty seems up to par with a game like WoW for example where the difficulty of the leveling content is extremely easy. The challenge comes from the dungeons and raids.
There are some story instance that looks just ridiculously fun, and spectacular. I had to stop watching them to not spoil the entire game.
The class with the guns, forgot the game looks so much fun.
I hope it comes to NA which I think they said it would, and I hope it's not in 2 years either.
Well it is an ARPG MMO, so unlike Diablo there are common persistant areas that have more in common with WoW than Diablo, so they don’t have difficulty settings like Diablo. The dungeons do have difficulty settings though like WoW dungeons do, do normal heroic, mythic etc..not sure how many or what they are called though.
From what I gather too, there’s a bunch of story instance where you’re solo, don’t think those have difficulty levels either. I commented on a Steparu YouTube video that game seemed way easy, and he replied that dungeons had different settings nothing about the rest.
