What kind of VPN is recommended?
Since the Russian version will be region-locked, you will need a VPN. You can use any VPN that has a stable connection node to Russia / CIS region locations(Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan). There are numerous VPN options out there, for example mudfish, expressvpn, etc.* We recommend using ExitLag, if you want an easy-to-use VPN that works right after installing and automatically sets up everything for you to play Lost Ark.
It offers a 3-day FREE trial service without any credit card information. If you like their service, you can use ‘LADB’ coupon code for 20% off your purchase.
We are also giving away 7-day and 30-day prepaid codes to celebrate the launch of Russian Lost Ark.
* If you see this message in the launcher, don’t worry, your VPN will be working.
