We’ve all been waiting for Lost Ark to finally enter beta stage, hearing nothing but “coming soon” and “stay tuned” for months. 

Luckily, we may finally have an answer to our prayers, as one of the biggest gaming conventions out there, Gamescom, kicks off on Thursday (26 August) and both Smilegate and Amazon are present at the event!

Could a Lost Ark Open Beta Date be Announced at Gamescom?

It really seems like we could get some good news at Gamescom. We’ve all been staying tuned for a few months now, the game is set to release in Fall, and the final class series video was just released. 

This all adds up to high potential of a good time at Gamescom. Of course, nothing is confirmed, but I wouldn’t be too surprised to see a quick Lost Ark trailer at the convention, alongside a beta date. 

With the game coming out in Fall, there’s not too much time until release. In fact, we’re down to just a few months now – hype! So we really should see a beta announcement, and the beta itself very soon.

How to Get Lost Ark Beta Access

If you want to get access to the Lost Ark beta, you can do so in one of two ways. First: you can sign up here for a chance to earn free participation. Alternatively, you can purchase a Founder’s Pack to guarantee beta access.

Founder’s Packs are split into four different tiers, and offer a range of rewards, alongside beta access. They’re a good way to support the game, earn some extra goodies, and even get a head-start once the actual game is released! 

Now, all we need to do is wait and hope for a beta date – as well as release itself!
