New World was released on September 28, 2021 by Amazon Games. The game was developed by Amazon Games. New World is a MMORPG.
Explore a thrilling, open-world MMO filled with danger and opportunity where you’ll forge a new destiny for yourself as an adventurer shipwrecked on the supernatural island of Aeternum. Endless opportunities to fight, forage, and forge await you among the island’s wilderness and ruins. Channel supernatural forces or wield deadly weapons in a classless, real-time combat system, and fight alone, with a small team, or in massed armies for PvE and PvP battles—the choices are all yours.
For thousands of years, Aeternum has been the source of fantastical legends—and now you’ve found it. Shipwrecked and without supplies or allies, you’ll need to make your way in a dangerous world where supernatural power has changed all the rules. In such a land, your destiny is whatever you make of it.
The players may form groups of up to five members, join one of three factions (Marauders, Syndicate, or Covenant), use node resources, craft items, gain control over settlements, quest, explore the world, or fight other players or monsters.
The gameplay involves no auto-locked targeting attacks and, therefore, a steady hand at aiming is required. With each level, the hostile mobs are programmed with increasingly complex and strong sequences of attacking behavior skill sets that will require the player to counter using their mana, stamina, and health with timed attacks, dodges, weapon blocks, retreats, or crawling stealth. The weapon skill tree choices are currently for bow, hammer, hatchet, fire staff, life staff, musket, spear, sword/shield, and ice gauntlet.
The economy centers around gold coins. The player can dispose of unwanted items through a trader between players in exchange for gold coins, they can salvage the items for resources, they can discard the item on to the unsecured ground, or they can make a direct transfer to another player. Characters that die do not drop items, but with each combat encounter, use, or death, the player’s items undergo damage. This damage can be repaired with repair items and gold coins.
There is fair bit of grinding that players need to figure on. The role playing nature of the game depends on it and the mat is key to each level as play continues. The crafting is comparatively complex which will take time to figure out.
This game uses a custom engine derived from the Crytek engine. Reports of some EVGA cards overheating have trickled in. Some reports of EVGA RTX 3000 series cards failing outright. EVGA is accepting RMA for fried cards. The developer is also looking into the engine design as well. Amazon Games has updated the game with a new framerate limiter to prevent video cards from overheating so badly.
