Amazon Games shared a new blog post on Steam related to the launch details of MMORPG New World. The game is going to be arriving next week on September 28. The devs have thanked the players for the past few years of alpha testing, preview events and more that were critical in helping the team prepare for launch.
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.
“New World’s launch is a unique moment when Aeternum is an unclaimed land of opportunity, and the ability for you and your Company to organize, progress, and claim your territory is an exciting event as you establish a foothold to defend and develop. We want that initial land rush to feel fair for all our players around the world. We paid close attention during Closed and Open Beta to your feedback on when servers went live. When planning our server launch times, we took fairness and your feedback in mind and have designed a server roll out we hope will support the majority of our players.”
Subscribers of Amazon Prime Gaming will receive a variety of free, exclusive items starting with the Pirate Packs. The first pack will be available starting on New World’s September 28 launch, and can be claimed until November 1. This pack includes an exclusive pirate character skin and pirate-stance emote, alongside 5,000 Marks of Fortune— a premium currency used to buy cosmetic items from the in-game store.
The second Pirate Pack will be available beginning October 12 and can be claimed by Prime Gaming members until November 1. It will include more exclusive pirate-themed goodies, with a pirate sword skin, a finger-across-the-throat emote, and a pack of 3 crests.
