The Vernese Forest region of Lost Ark Gold can come as quite a shock as you enter it. It's got a massive maze-like mapthat is crisscrossed by an aerial walkway that makes it hard to navigate. To make matters worse, there are only two triports and few vendors. In short, this place isn't easy work.

Lost Ark can be described as a grindy MMO which is the perfect way to pass away the hours

Debuting only a week ago, Lost Ark has shot into the top of Steam charts, having accumulated over 1 million concurrent players making it the most popular game ever on Steam (based on the number of concurrents) of all time. The game was created in collaboration with Smilegate RPG, Lost Ark is a Korean MMO which debuted in Korea in 2018 before being localized to English and brought to west in partnership and Amazon Games. Though it's only been around in the US and Europe for a limited time, it has over 200,000 viewers on Twitch in the moment and has defeated games like Dota 2, CS:GO, and PUBG by a record number of concurrent players on Steam.

So what the hell is a Lost Ark anyway I spent one week exploring this new gaming hotness, eager to see if it has the qualities to be my new obsession or just something that I'm content to let people obsess about. Lost Ark is a free-to-play MMO that has the same gameplay as Diablo. It's an isometric, action RPG with all the cultural hallmarks of an open-play MMO including wildly underdressed female models as well as a game chat that is flooded with spam from gold-miners. Lost Ark is mindless fun that doesn't penalize the player for not taking the game too seriously.
