Amazon brings Korean action RPG Lost Ark to the West this fall •

Amazon will bring Lost Ark to North America and Europe this fall.

Amazon Games has created a Diablo-style action RPG that you can play for free for release on your PC. Beta is planned for later this summer. Here’s the trailer that was displayed during last night’s Summer Game Fest event:

According to Amazon, Lost Ark has already appeared in South Korea, Japan and Russia, with more than 8 million simultaneous players. It was developed by the Korean studio Smilegate RPG. Its parent company has developed the incredibly popular first-person shooter Crossfire.

Amazon Games, which developed the MMO New World in-house later this year, recently canceled the Lord of the Rings MMO over a dispute between Amazon and Chinese giant Tencent.

Cancellation was the latest setback for Amazon Game Studios, which hasn’t released the game yet. In October, Amazon canceled Crucible. 5 months after release and 4 months after release.

In February, Amazon’s ambitious MMO New World received a third delay and is currently scheduled for August 31st.

“It’s the first of many exciting titles that Amazon Games publishes,” said Christoph Hartman, vice president of Amazon Games.

We are also developing a new game from the San Diego Amazon game team, led by industry veteran John Smedley, and a new Amazon game development studio in Montreal, founded by the core team behind Rainbow Six Siege.
