Why can’t I play Lost Ark in the Netherlands?
According to Lost Ark, they have not released it in the Netherlands and in Belgium because of local laws and regulations.
Lost Ark is a game of chance in Belgium and The Netherlands due to its random in-game items.
In another Lost Ark tweet on Twitter, they also said that Amazon does not have the right to publish the game in any additional countries or regions.
It shows that you might not be able to play the game if you are in SEA (Southeast Asia).
Is Lost Ark available in Asia?
Lost Ark is not available in Asia (for example, China, Singapore, and India).
Currently, Lost Ark contains 4 regions with servers available for them.
The servers are in North America East, North America West, Central Europe, and Latin America.
The paid items are marked as “Gambling/RNG content”, that is the reason why the game is blocked in some countries.
According to Lost Ark’s replies on Twitter, they do not want to publish the game in any additional region except the regions available in the list above.
Therefore, if you’re a resident of Southeast Asia, Belgium, or the Netherlands, use a VPN to download the game on Steam because that is the only way.
