Lost Ark Reveals “Abyss Raids” And More for its First Major Update

New Lost Ark Content Has Been Found

After Lost Ark exploded into the gaming scene (and I do mean exploded), you just knew it was going to get post-launch support. It’s an MMO, to forego that kind of support would be a major mistake. You just know that Amazon Games isn’t going to pass up on an audience this huge.

But what are they greeting their massive playerbase with? Lost Ark‘s next update, coming later this month, will feature some major story additions. In the “Kadan” story expansion, you’ll experience “a new storyline, complete with its own quests, new islands, and cinematic moments. These quests will include a cast of new and returning characters as you learn more about the Sidereals and search for the legendary Kadan, the first Guardian slayer, in your journey to find the final Ark.

This information comes to us through an announcement blog post, that went on to clarify “Players will need to have completed Feiton, alongside comepleting the following quests: ‘Yorn – Let There Be Light’, ‘Whispering Islet – Start of Our Story’, and ‘Illusion Bamboo Island – End of the Trials’ as a prerequisite before embarking on the new end-game questlines. Both Isteri & Illusion Bamboo islands are recommended for players at item level 1100.”

Another key addition is the “Abyss Raids”, something for endgame players to sink their teeth into. Acting as a limited-time raid boss, players will need to work together to bring down a Guardian before the clock hits zero. It’ll be an 8v1 fight, but you’ll fight something far stronger than any Guardian you’ve faced before. The post didn’t elaborate on what exactly you’d be fighting (other than it being “titanic”), but that’s probably for the best. Go in blind, the developers are almost daring you to take it down in your first try.
