If you've been following gaming developments this week, you might have noticed that a game called Lost Ark is gaining all kinds of attention online.

It's a free-to-play MMORPG developed by South Korean company Smilegate and published by Amazon Games, and, following the launch of its beta back in 2019, is finally launching "for real" this week.

It has proven so popular that it has racked up over 532,000 concurrents on Steam for those who have early access, making it one of Steam's biggest ever games, even before its full launch.

With its "Overwhelmingly Positive" rating on Steam, it's understandable that you might want to know if Lost Ark is coming to Switch. At present, the official website states very clearly that "Lost Ark is only available on PC" and no other platforms are mentioned. Boo.

However, Smilegate is the developer behind the game, and while the company's previous titles have been focused on either mobile or PC, it is releasing CrossfireX on the Xbox, which does at least show the studio is open to bringing its games to consoles.

And given that we've seen the likes of Skyforge and Arena of Valor come to Switch, there's clearly a market for this kind of title on Nintendo's console.

If you'd like to try Lost Ark out on PC, the game launches on Steam today (Friday 11th February) at the following times:

  • East Coast US: 12PM (EST)
  • West Coast US: 9AM (PST)
  • UK: 5PM (GMT)
  • Europe: 6PM (CEST)
