The developers of Lost Ark at Smilegate have introduced a new class for the A-RPG during an official event. The Slayer comes as a female berserker with a huge broadsword.
What’s going on? Lost Ark fans can look forward to a lot of new content in the coming year, including another class. The Slayer, a kind of female Beserker, will first appear in South Korea, but will probably be available to Western players soon as well. We summarize what is known about the class so far.
The New Lost Ark Class “Slayer” at a Glance
What is the new Slayer class all about? As already mentioned, the Slayer is a female berserker. This means that the Slayer will probably come into play as a specialization of the Warrior. Similar to the Berserker, the Slayer wields a huge broadsword, which the class uses to give their opponents hell in close combat.
You can see what the whole thing looks like in action in the official gameplay trailer for the Slayer:
The developers have not yet announced exact details about the skills of the class. However, if the Slayer is indeed based on the Berserker, it is conceivable that the Slayer will also rely on a kind of wrath system. What can already be seen in the gameplay video are the rather slow animations that we already know from the Berserker. Accordingly, the Slayer will probably not be one of the most agile classes in the game.
When will the new class be released? The developers of Lost Ark have announced that the Slayer will be released in Korea as early as January 2023. We assume that Western players won’t have to wait too long until they can enjoy the new class.
What other innovations are in store for us? In addition to the Slayer, Smilegate has announced a new assassin class, the Soul Eater, which will be released sometime in 2023. Fans can also look forward to a continuation of the story and a new playable continent, including more dungeons and raids. Last but not least, the developers are planning an extensive graphics update that should improve the lighting and reflections.
There are no concrete dates for the announced innovations yet, but Smilegate and Amazon will surely announce more information about them soon.
