Amazon Games’ New World is an open world MMO set during the twilight of the Age of Exploration. It pits players against the supernatural terrors of Aeternum – an island beset by corrupted creatures and ready to play host to the player-founded factions that will inevitably descend into chaos themselves. This marks the first big PC Game outing from the studio and we have been anticipating its release, currently set at 25th August, for quite some time now – but a New World beta will be here even sooner.
The game promises players the choice to ride solo or partake in the politics of fellow players, with exciting large-scale PvP on the cards for those who want to get stuck into the multiplayer mechanics. The promise of giant siege battles between players, with up to 100 players on the battlefield has been something of the jewel in the crown for this paranormal title. On the other hand, undead enemies aplenty await those who prefer to go it alone – with a visceral skill-based combat system ready to accommodate and reward aficionados.
The good news for prospective players of this title is that a closed New World beta test is scheduled for 23rd July 2020, nearly a month before its release. To gain access, you simply need to prove your eagerness by pre-ordering the game, which will secure you automatic entry to the closed beta when it begins (alongside some in-game rewards).
We encourage you to watch closely as this latest Amazon Games title develops – with their first PC outing already looking very pretty, we are once again keen to jump in ourselves and see whether it stands up to the relative success of its MOBA title, Crucible. Watch this space!
