Lost Ark has been supplying players with a number of updates for new content heading to the free-to-play MMO this month.

Arkesia Grand Prix

But just announced today there is more heading to the game including a new activity called Arkesia Grand Prix racing. Yes that’s right, those of your may be familiar with Chocobo racing, well in a sense Lost Ark has its own version.

Racing will involve heading to the Arkesia Grand Prix circuit, in a team vs team speedathon. Each team will consist of 7 players, which will race the course transformed as what looks to be Arkesia beings, with the aim to reach the end of the race and eat cakes, yum! This activity looks to be another fun-filled way to spend your time, well until April’s update as it’s a limited-time event.

Players will need to be level 50 in order to take part and will need to head to a major city to enter.

Competitive Proving Grounds Season 1

Another update coming to Lost Ark is Season 1 of Proving Grounds. Players can take part in the first competitive season in the pursuit of glory and rewards later this month. In order to take part, players will need to queue solo for ‘Team Deathmatch’. Wins and losses will count towards your ‘Competitive Match Average Score’, giving you a rank based on your score.

Head to the Proving Grounds this month to compete for glory and rewards!
