Publisher announces collaboration with CD PROJEKT RED
12/01/2022 - Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG today announced a collaboration with CD PROJEKT RED in which Geralt of Riva and other characters from the world of The Witcher will be featured in Lost Ark as part of a limited-time crossover event. The event will take place in January for players in Europe, North and South America, and Australia; it has already launched in Korea.
Familiar characters from The Witcher such as Geralt of Riva, Yennefer of Vengerberg, Triss Merigold of Maribor, Knight's Spur and Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon, voiced by the Voice Actors from the original game, do the honors in a new story and a new world. In the unique, limited-time event, the new island of White Wolf's Haven is the scene of merriment and festivities - until a mysterious whirlpool suddenly appears, interrupting the festivities. While investigating the inexplicable phenomenon, players meet a visitor from another world and time: Geralt of Riva, the famous sorcerer. The meeting sets a series of events in motion as players get to the bottom of the origin of the interdimensional vortex and meet more visitors from another dimension. Lost Ark players team up with characters from The Wit cher in this clash of worlds to solve a mystery that transcends time and space.
During the event, players can obtain new matching items. New cosmetic items are available in the store and those who participate in the event will receive new scars, maps, fortress buildings, emojis and more. Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG released Lost Ark in February 2022 with a record-breaking 1.3 million concurrent players on Steam in the West - the second highest number of concurrent players in Steam history.
