The Lost Ark community is anticipating the release of the battle pass in the game’s Western version. Besides the hint found in a teaser video, a community manager hinted to players that an additional surprise is coming on top of the already confirmed content. 

Battle Pass Might be Coming to The Game | Ark Pass Leak in Lost Ark

The Korean version of the game already has Ark Pass, a tier-based battle pass where players need to level up each tier to obtain rewards. This system might be coming to its Western counterpart. Read on to know more about the existing Ark Pass and what players are saying about it.

Korean Ark Pass

The Korean Ark Pass has three tracks: Free, Premium, and SuperPremium

  • Free Pass – rewards are coins, pets, and a pretty cool mount
  • Premium Pass – all free rewards and in-game materials such as gem boxes, more pets, and a bunch of honing materials, costs 19,600 royal crystals
  • Super Premium Pass – all rewards from the first two tiers and cosmetic rewards, skins, wallpapers for character selection main menu, and some blue crystals, costs 49,200 royal crystals

However, not many players are positive that the whole Korean Ark Pass will be adapted as is. Generally, Western games only have two tiers in their battle passes: free and premium. Additionally, the Korean version costs way more, especially the super-premium pass.

So, some players are predicting either of the following adjustments:

First, let players buy the premium versions of the battle pass with crystals so that free-to-play players can enjoy the same benefits.

Second, they are suggesting removing the super-premium pass and integrating the rewards into the first-tier pass.

Third, they can include three tracks: free, premium, and super-premium. However, let premium be purchasable with crystals so free-to-play players can also buy them. On the other hand, the super-premium track can be bought with royal crystals since the bonus rewards for this tier are mostly cosmetics.

Most players are confident that developers are more likely to adjust the battle pass to cater to Western audiences and gear it towards free-to-play rather than pay-to-earn. This has been the case with many in-game features.

GTA VI Leaks – What We Know so Far?

Rockstar Games on high alert

Massive leaks have been spread throughout social media platforms about Grand Theft Auto 6. If you are a GTA V account owner, you may have an idea of what happened. On September 19, “teapotuberhacker,” a user from GTAForums, posted 90 videos of test builds for the upcoming game by Rockstar. The hacker revealed assets and source codes for GTA 6 on YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, and other platforms. Rockstar locks down its social media accounts, and the situation may lead to investigations with the FBI, although there is no official statement from Rockstar regarding this matter.

The leaks were illegally taken from the studio’s network, leading to the conclusion that the GTA 6 hacker is not a lot but a small group working together to post the leaked data. Rockstar confirms that these leaks are legitimate, and the GTA publisher Take-Two is working on taking down confidential information about the game by using copyright rules on mainstream platforms.

The game set’s location appears to be in Vice City; thanks to groups of dedicated fans, a map was made using various tools, which is not entirely new. When GTA 5 was still under development and trailers, screenshots, and teasers were being released; GTA had a fan base that could create a map for Grand Theft Auto 5 before the game was released; the map was an almost perfect match to the official map in GTA 5. Not to mention these players also became the people who made GTA 5 modded accounts.

Introducing New Characters

Based on leaked information, Grand Theft Auto 6 would be an open-world game with male and female protagonists, Jason and Lucia. One of the videos shows the two in what appears to be an instant character switching, similar to GTA 5. Where Michael, Franklin, and Trevor’s character switch; although this time, it looks like the loading time is faster in this test run. Several screenshots show Lucia having different make-up and hairstyles, similar to Grand Theft Auto 5: Online, although customization is available for the female protagonist this time.

Smartphone System

Grand Theft Auto 4 introduced the smartphone system as a tool to contact friends, dates, and a few mission events. At the same time, Grand Theft Auto 5 added new functionalities like emails and website functionality. A parody of Facebook exists in this game called Life Invader; there may be a GTA 6 parody of Mark Zuckerberg; who knows? Aside from that, there is no information if Rockstar has updated this system.

Travel System

There are a few notable things about how players would be able to move around the map. Footage shows Jason swimming more profoundly in the water; unlike in previous games, the deepness of how far a player can swim has always been limited. For vehicles, test footage of vehicle damage where Jason shoots the floor of the boat and a fan boat on land. The subway system returns since GTA 4; we see Jason going in and out of a train car.

GTA 5 Combat

A video of Lucia fighting with NPCs was also shown, a tweaked weapon wheel, and NPCs reloading in real-time. Clips of recoil tests make everything realistic, and the latest addition in combat is for players to go prone, which is perfect for stealth-based missions.

Shooting from vehicles has been limited to small weapons; we have seen drive-bys from the test footage, allowing players to use bigger weapons. This would be great since bigger weapons would deal more damage. Switching hands while shooting is another excellent addition to combat; there are plenty of scenarios to get the proper angle on an enemy by switching the hand you are shooting from.

Vice City

The Miami-inspired city has dramatically changed since Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. There are the usual elements to be found, like neon lights in nightclubs and beachfront, but Rockstar has made an effort to make the map modernized by ensuring the look and feel are authentic to the real-life locations of Florida. The level of detail from these tests is fantastic as it can be; driving real-life inspiration for locations provides an immersive experience for players.

Gas stations, bars, tennis courts, motels, the environment, and the subway system is diverse, possible even better than GTA 5s’ map. Lucia has been seen to use a gumball machine inside convenience stores, which could mean there would be more things to interact with in Vice City.

There may be more surprises in store from GTA 6, and these are just the little details that have been leaked. Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to be released by late 2024 or early 2025.
