Lost Ark Undergoes Server Maintenance As March Update Hits

Lost Ark, the hit MMORPG from Smilegate Studios, is currently undergoing server maintenance as the March update is implemented.

For players of Lost Ark, four hours is a long time to be missing out on the excellent RPG. What else are we to do this morning if we can’t complete our dailies? However, the wait should certainly be worth it once the server downtime is over.

That’s correct – if you’ve tried logging in to Lost Ark this morning, you’ll likely have been hit with a server downtime message. Smilegate has explained that the servers are expected to be offline between 8am and 12pm GMT. During this four hour period, the team is implementing the changes brought with the March update.

Lost Ark Server Maintenance – March Update Content

As part of the update, players can expect to see a new story episode, complete with brand new quests and all new islands. Your mission will be to search for a character called Kadan, one of the first Guardian slayers in the world of Lost Ark.

In addition, there’s also the brand new Abyss Raid: Argos. No, not the catalogue. If you’re looking for something else to pass the time with, there’s also the new Arkesia Grand Prix racing mode. The March update also sees the start of the Competitive Grounds Season 1. Test your skills against other players in this highly competitive combat arena.

For those looking to play the fashion game, you’ll be intrigued by the new Omen skin collection. These epic looking cosmetics will be available to purchase using Royal Crystals.
