Can You PVP With Friends in Lost Ark?

Yes, PvP is possible with friends in Lost Ark. While you're levelling up, you'll be able to engage in duels with friends and other players to test your skills. The game also features some extra competitive PvP modes, though you'll need to do a certain main quest (and some levelling) before you have access to those.

The three competitive PvP modes available are: Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, and Team Elimination.

Team Deathmatch is a 3v3 setup where the goal is to secure as many kills as possible within the timeframe.

Deathmatch is similar, except you'll be on your own against the rest of the participating solo players.

Team Elimination is also 3v3. Here, each player is matched with an opponent of similar skill where the goal is for a team to be the first to eliminate the entire opposing team. Before the start of the match, players must decide the order of who goes first. The winner of round one will progress to the next round until they die, from here another teammate will step in.

Lost Ark launches in North America on Feb. 11, 2022.
