Lost Ark pre-load file size

At the time of writing, the exact pre-load file size for Lost Ark has not been revealed.

We do, however, know that the Lost Ark PC system requirements notes you will need 50 GB of free space, so we expect the game's download size to be roughly the same, or a little less.
