Amazon has delayed the release of its upcoming MMO New World multiple times, but its official launch is on the horizon. New World is currently in alpha, so while many of the game’s systems have been finished, it is possible that they will receive substantial tweaks before the New World release date arrives. Here’s everything coming to the new MMO this summer. Here is everything you need to know about the game.
New World Release Date
The gaming world was due to see New World be released over a year ago back in May 2020. However, due to the Pandemic, the game was delayed for quite some time.
We now know the new release date for the game, and developers Amazon Game Studios have confirmed that New World will be released August 31, 2021.
From this moment, players will have full access to the game, however there is also a beta version of New World that will be coming out very soon.
Players will be able to access the beta version of the game July 20, 2021, but it will be a closed beta.
No doubt the developers will give us little sneak peaks as we get closer to the release; however, a lot has already been seen and revealed, including a trailer and gameplay trailer.
t is exciting times as the game is only a few months away from full release and less than a month away from the beta release.
Is there a New World trailer?
The latest "New World" trailer, titled "This Is Aeternum," dropped on May 11. At exactly two minutes long, the clip provides an overview of the game's setting, including some of the adventures, wonders, and threats you can expect to face. You can fish, hunt, and chop wood — or take on more dangerous pursuits. The succession of scenes offers glimpses of Aeternum's more hostile inhabitants, which the official website divides in two categories: the Corrupted, the Ancient, and the Lost — twisted beings who were once human — and plant-animal hybrids known as the Angry Earth.
Beyond the island's denizens, the May video highlights the hybrid combat system used in "New World," with plenty of artillery, melee weapons, and spells on display. This "choose your own adventure" approach comes with a wealth of clothing and equipment, allowing you to customize your character's appearance and augment your chosen build. It seems you'll need every advantage you can get to survive and carve out your place in the PvP and PvE environment. Thankfully, you don't have to face this challenge alone, as demonstrated by the variety of solo and party battles featured in the trailer. If exploration and story are more your thing, it looks you'll also have plenty of ruins to delve, NPCs to interact with, and secrets to uncover.
New World Gameplay
New World features melee, ranged, and magic combat propped up by customizable weapons discovered and forged across Aeternum. Players can engage in PvP or team up to take on hordes of corrupted warriors from the past.
New World banks heavily on social systems with the ability to create Companies with delimited hierarchies and functions with soldiers, artisans, traders, and leaders. Companies can venture out to defeat the lurking evil or strive to seize treasures from other players.
The island of Aeternum also offers players challenges via formidable wildlife that can be hunted for resources to craft equipment and feed Companies. The land also bears its own bounty resources that can be scavenged, and players will have to battle for control over particularly affluent locations.
