As studios go, Amazon Games is still in its infancy, but that hasn’t stopped them from undertaking a seriously ambitious task, crafting an impressive-looking MMO. Using a team consisting of former Destiny, World of Warcraft, and Everquest developers, Amazon Games has developed New World.
In New World, you travel to the mysterious island Aeternum, where the vast forces of evil are there to greet you. See those forces in action in the latest cinematic trailer.
Welcome to the New World.
New World is an open world MMO set in the twilight of the Age of Exploration, during the 17th century. In New World, players are pitted against the haunted wilderness of a mysterious island known as Aeternum. Success in New World depends on players’ ability to conquer not only companies of rival players, but the dark soul of Aeternum itself, as it unleashes undead legions, hell-bent on purging them from its shores. In its unsettled state, Aeternum is open and chaotic, but rich in opportunity for soldiers, explorers, artisans, and empire-builders.
Massive battles set New World apart, with fortress sieges against other players and supernatural invasions, featuring up to 100 players on the battlefield at once. Combat in New World is visceral and skill-based, giving players direct control over their movements and attacks. Players can band together to form powerful Companies operating out of fortified strongholds, or play alone and acquire and customize their own homes as they contribute to the growth of the larger community around them. New World provides near-limitless play, with classless character progression, social systems, and rich crafting mechanics.
Pre-order for New World is available now at prices of $39.99 for Standard Edition and $49.99 for Deluxe. If you do pre-order, you’ll gain access to the Closed Beta in April. That’s a month before actual release on Steam in May 2020.
