The world undoubtedly looks beautiful, and players are diving in with one of Lost Ark's exciting classes. Some PC gamers, however, do want to know if their gaming rig meets the system requirements (specs) of Lost Ark.
If you want to know if your gaming rig is up to the task, we've got you covered with the detailed Lost Ark PC system requirements and file size.
