Lost Ark, the new Smilgate MMORPG published by Amazon Games has had quite a busy launch week/ Huge player counts that broke Steam records, a hefty viewership on Twitch, and even server congestion. In fact, it’s become so popular Smilegate is currently adding a whole new region in Europe to accommodate the huge population.
Lost Ark Receiving New Servers For Europe to Combat Congestion problems
We’re working as quickly as possible to set up an entirely new region of servers in Europe. We understand lengthy queue times may persist and will need time to help accommodate all players to get in game.

On a blogpost Smilegate talks about its plans t quickly put up a new region for European players. This new region will be a distinct, separate region from the rest of Central Europe so it will not have cross-region play. It also means that players’ currencies like Royal Crystals and Silver will not be available on this new region.
This region is created moreso for new players who haven’t made a character yet, however, if you aren’t attached to anything yet you’re still able to move over and create another character on these new servers.
As both an apology for the server troubles and a thank you to everyone who played Lost Ark in its first week will receive the rewards listed below.
- Vehicle Selection Chest (choice of either mount)
- Terpeion of the Shadow
- Midsummer Night’s Dream Instrument Skin Selection Chest
- Healing Battle Item Chest x10
- Offensive Battle Item Chest x10
- Legendary Rapport Selection Chest x3
- Weekly Trade potions Pack x3
- Phoenix Plume x20
These gifts will be available once the new region is up and running, which as of writing has not happened yet.
