When installing video games, virtually all of us overlook the Terms of Service (ToS). Sometimes, however, there are real gems in these documents. This is the case with the ToS of the online RPG Lost Arkwhich contains humorous provisions in case of, among others, an alien invasion on Earth.
Lost Ark developers prepared for alien invasion or alien planet colonization
The section dealing with such an eventuality can be found under point 5, where we find the provision that only humans can accept the terms of service of Lost Ark. Corporations, artificial intelligences, aliens, or animals cannot do so.
This provision, however, will be suspended in the event of an invasion of Earth by an alien civilization, a revolt of robots or animals that have reached a level of consciousness that enables them to carry out an effective rebellion against humanity. In that case, the invaders will be entitled to accept the ToS of Lost Ark and start playing the game.
In addition, if humanity begins colonizing Mars or another planet, the provisions of the terms of service will be modified accordingly to not include Earth alone.
Lost Ark has broken the all-time activity records for Dota 2 and CSGO
