Today, the official website got updated and the dates for the final closed beta test has been announced.
The registration phase begins today on April 19th and lasts until May 13th 23:59 KST.
You can register from now on during this period by showing interest with filling out a CBT form on the official website.
The registration process is very straightforward, however you will need a KSSN/ i-pin verified korean STOVE account to register for the closed beta.
How to get an account?
- Eiher get a korean friend to register for you…
- …or purchase an account from- or verify your own account(highly recommended) with an asian account verification service (Newgameway,OBTgame, etc…)
How to apply/register for the closed beta?
Step 1: Navigate to the registration form: here
Step 2: Enter a phone number(can be random, its for promotional stuff and the notification sms if you get selected)
Step 3: Fill out the other information, first is your gender, then age and questions regarding your playtimes and the games you liked. Just use google translate for this part.
Step 4: The last bit, a maximum 500 letter “What you like about Lost Ark?” introduction. Before you think it’s important and start some kind of ritual to write the perfect 500 letter essay: it’s not important, it does not reduce/improve your chances if you write the perfect little story, as long as it’s in korean language it should be fine.
Step 5: If you filled out the form and submitted it, you should see a character shot of Hawkeye and a message “Final CBT 신청이 완료되었습니다.” this means your application was successfully sent.
The winners will get announced on May 18th. All previous testers(CBT1 and CBT2) get access automatically to the final test and get their badges upgraded(They will need to apply for the testing phase too, but CBT3 access is granted instantly).
The final closed beta test phase will last 12 days starting on May 23rd and all the way through until June 3rd.
Further information about the schedule and opening hours of the servers will be announced at a later date.
