Discussion in 'New World' started by Patriarch, Apr 9, 2020.
New World announced its closed beta date during the PC Gaming Show today. Coming July 23rd, players who pre-order New World now will gain access to the closed beta next month.
New World takes players to the Eternal Isle of Aeternum, pitting them against each other and the denizens of the Isle set during the Age of Exploration. Amazon's forary into survival MMOs has players fighting against corrupted PvE factions, as well as engaging in massive wars for territory over other players. We had the chance to go hands-on earlier this year in one of the major PvP battles and PvE exploration, with our writer, Brian, finding the experience rather enjoyable overall.
Along with the date, the team at Amazon also released a new combat oriented trailer, showing off some of the dangers you'll face on the Eternal Isle.
New World will hit Steam on August 25th, but for those who want an earlier look can pre-order and gain access to the closed beta by pre-ordering today, with two versions available - a standard edition at $39.99 and deluxe for $49.99.
August 25 - Beta Test
Honestly happy with this. They had previously stated that what's in the current version of the game will be what's available at release, and it felt like there was a huge lack of content both in pve and pvp.
Have they mentioned the reason for the pushback? Hoping it's for more content.
The game development here confuses me ... it was originally a survival game, or at least that was the perception based on early on game play. Then it was strictly PvE. Then they added PvP and seemed to actually lean toward a more dominant PvP format. Then they changed/eliminated PvP because of the griefing and open world ganking that the game allowed, thus ruining the game play experience for those that prefer PvE only content. I'm not sure where PvP is right now as to the state of the game. ... arena's, battlefields, sieges?
What exactly do we know the game actually is?
