Do you live in Asia and cannot play certain games on Steam? Here, we have explained how to Play Lost Ark in Asia.

How to Play Lost Ark in Asia

Lost Ark is only available in four regions. These consist of North America, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania.

The game isn't rolled out in Asia. As a result, people living in the Philippines, Singapore, India, Malaysia, and other Asian countries will not be able to play.

Lost Ark even said that Amazon does not have the right to publish the game in other regions.

The “This item is currently unavailable in your region” error is common to Steam users living in an unsupported region. The full error details read:

“This item is currently unavailable in your region. An error was encountered when processing your request”.

The error message is usually for users trying to access a game that has not been released in your country. If a game is unavailable in a region, then a user trying to access it from a country in that region will get the error.

Since the game is unavailable in Asia, users from countries like Malaysia, India and the Philippines will get the exact error. Interestingly, you can bypass the restriction and play the game in your region.

Affected users cannot view, download or play the game on Steam.

Note that some games on Steam are region-dependent, meaning you can only play them if you live in a supported region. One example of such a game is Lost Ark, which can be played in the United States but is not available in Asia.

Hence, if you live in a country on the Asia continent, you can't view, download or play the game on Steam. To know if a game is supported in your region, kindly refer to the game's website.

How to Play Lost Ark in Asia

To play Lost Ark in Asia, you can connect to a VPN or wait until it is rolled out to your region.

When you connect to a VPN, you can easily switch to a country where the game is supported to fix the error. You can download the game and play it from your Steam library even if it is not open to your region.

Here are the steps to fix “This item is currently unavailable in your region” on Steam below.

1.      Connect to a VPN.

If you have a VPN service, you can connect it by choosing a supported country. You do not need a premium VPN service to do this.

Go to the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store to find some free VPN apps to use.

2.      Go to SteamPowered Store

Visit the SteamPowered Store and search for the game you want to download. You can either select “Play Game”, or you buy it.

While connected to a VPN, you can view the game and download it.

However, you need the browser version of Steam to do that since a VPN will not work with the Steam desktop app.

3.      Select the “Yes, Steam is installed” option

After downloading the game, select the “Play Game” option to see a pop-up containing two options, including “Yes, Steam is installed” and “No, I need Steam”.

Choose the “Yes, Steam is installed” option and sign in to your account.

4.      You can now play the game

When you choose “Yes, Steam is installed”, you will see a pop-up requesting to install the game after the on-screen instructions. After successful installation, you can locate the game in your Steam library.

Once you install the game, you can play it without a VPN. However, some game has only US servers. To play, you need to connect to the US via a VPN.

Is Lost Ark coming to SEA?

Lost Ark's official Twitter account tweeted that there are no plans to add dedicated servers for OCE or SEA. It also said that Amazon does not have the right to publish the game in other regions.

As a result, people in the SEA region cannot download the game because of the restriction unless they connect to a VPN. Also, based on the Lost Ark tweet, the game is not coming to OCE or SEA anytime soon.
