After teasing Argos and Kadan through Social Media. Amazon Games announced some of the contents of the next big update coming to western Lost Ark. Argos and Kadan, are the key parts of this update, with full details and Patch Notes coming later. Feature Roadmap is also expected to come soon.
Argos is the first major raid coming to Lost Ark. This encounter is separated into three phases with different item level requirements.
Encounter an entirely new end-game activity: Abyss Raids. Similar to Guardian raids, players will need to work together to defeat a Guardian before the time expires, with a limited number of revives available to the party. Abyss Raids will pit eight players against a Guardian- but these are bigger, badder, and much more difficult than your average Guardian.
Players will need to progress through three distinct phases as they work together to vanquish their titanic foe. In the three phases, the Guardian will grow more powerful with different mechanics and attack patterns. Each phase has its own rewards (collectable once a week), and different item level requirements for players to participate.
Argos will be available through the Abyss Raid Statue in major cities.

Experience a new storyline, complete with its own quests, new islands, and cinematic moments. These quests will include a cast of new and returning characters as you learn more about the Sidereals and search for the legendary Kadan, the first Guardian slayer, in your journey to find the final Ark. Players will need to have completed Feiton, alongside comepleting the following quests: ‘Yorn – Let There Be Light’, ‘Whispering Islet – Start of Our Story’, and ‘Illusion Bamboo Island – End of the Trials’ as a prerequisite before embarking on the new end-game questlines.
