Many Raiders of the Lost Ark

A tweet from SteamDB notes that yesterday's launch of Lost Ark has already attracted a higher peak player count than New World has since that competing MMORPG launched in September. It's currently number one on SteamDB's Most Played Games on Steam List, and has the fifth highest peak player count recorded since the site began tracking such things. The only games that have ever hosted more concurrent players on Steam are Cyberpunk 2077, Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and (with more than double the next closest competitor) PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS. Here's word:
Lost Ark peaked at 984,111 concurrent players on Steam once release servers went online, already beating New World's peak which was 913,634.

I mean it is TERA meets Diablo.....I don't know how long the attention span will be for most players but it is seriously fun the first play thru.

Isn't this an MMO? How do you "play thru" it?

The game wants you to have alts using the "roster" system as it improves stats etc for all your characters by raising that roster level. Playing through the game multiple times on multiple characters are the play throughs, though since I haven't "beat" it yet and haven't gotten to endgame I don't know if there is a harder mode available for story stuff or anything like that.

The player count would be much higher if they hadn't shut down char creations to control the queue times. My friends has bene trying to get on for the past two days. no go!!

My suggestion would be to load it up and play it OR watch a youtube gameplay video if you have questions about the gameplay and whether it applies to you.

There is absolutely a single player story to be played in this game....it isn't going to win a Pulitzer prize for writing quality though so if that is something you are particular about, heads up. Lots of "chaos is coming" type vague BS and anime cutscenes that often make little sense the first time you view them. Its that Black Desert/TERA type gameplay in a Diablo form factor that I like.

Game has been out for 5 years or so outside the US. It's super polished.

It's a MMOARPG, with an extensive end game. All the classes are pretty balanced around DPS (play your way).

There are a lot of systems to learn but the game will bring them online over time so as to not overwhelm you.

Can play with a controller, too, and it's sort of twin-stickish.

It's free so play and see if you enjoy it (although not right now as the queues seems to be brutal).

I'm kind of interested but the reviews on Steam are less than stellar. The game is F2P but apparently its P2W/ P2 escape Korean MMO grind?

combat is interesting, writing and voice acting is cringe worthy bad dub japanimation (LOTS OF FUCKING SIGH'ING AND GRUNTS), visually stunning, and great cutscenes.

Combat seems different, and quite impactful, graphics are good, but at the moment i'm just an errand boy... running from person to person, often when they are within a metre of each other.

Kill objective quests are over in like 30 seconds, then it's back to being an errand boy and clicking through more text spam (i had to setup a macro to save my fingers!).

So far 95% of my time has been clicking through menus and traveling from one text clicking quest giver to the next, occasionally doing some mind numbingly easy activities in between.

Gear system also seems very... lame. Different rarities just seem to have slightly better stats, nothing that changes your abilities or playstyle in the slightest.

Hopefully thing improve at higher levels because its feeling... grindy already.

Oh, and what's with all the single player only missions? Isn't this meant to be an MMO....

So does that mean that the Ark has been found now? Can they already shut down the game again?

That sounds like the worse kind of grid.

If this game didn't have spikey hair, weapons 4 times bigger than the person holding it, fuck noise sighs and grunts, bouncing tits and child pornography disguised as "japanese art", this game would've been a hundred times better.

I so fucking hate that japanese art-style. Same with Elden Ring: you have these beautiful landscapes, awesome dragons and ruins, and then there's this weird girl with huge fucking eyes and a small mouth suddenly just yanking you into manga-land...

I remember being excited about this game 5yrs ago. I've only played for a couple hours, but it feels old and unpolished. Cutscenes are indeed cringeworthy. The combat seems fun but so far the game is more intent on making me click through poorly animated, poorly voiced, poorly written story content than letting me fight anything.
