Amazon is a name a lot of people already associate with video games, but it’s usually about delivering hot new releases to the doorstep, not making games. This is where New World hopes to turn things around. As Amazon Game’s first true escape experience, New World is an open-world massively multiplayer online RPG (meaning there are no subscription fees once you have it purchased) with over 1,000 players per server set in the 17th century. world history with fantastic creatures, magic and mythology.

Amazon Games has been working on New World for over three years. An initial closed alpha testing period ran from October 2018 to June 2019 to gather early feedback from players and the game has continued to evolve ever since. In the New World, players from around the world will fight together (and against each other) to secure and establish the covered island of Aeternum. To prepare for the game’s launch later this year, we’ve compiled everything we know about New World so far in one place, including information about its release date, story, various gameplay features, and more. even more.

When is New World coming out?

At the moment, New World does not have a definitive release date. But during The Game Awards 2019 last year, the new cinematic trailer revealed that Amazon Games was planning to launch New World in May 2020 exclusively for PC.

What is the story and premise of New World?

Rather than trying to directly imitate history, New World is entirely fictional but uses 17th century explorers and the discovery of new lands as the basis for inspiration. In New World, you take control of an intrepid adventurer who finds himself on the shores of Aeternum, also known as the Eternal Isle.

The land of Aeternum is teeming with Azoth, a powerful substance said to be able to bestow eternal life, much like the Fountain of Youth. Obviously, you and other travelers are obligated to investigate further. Aeternum is, on paper, a diverse region with a mixture of beautiful landscapes and unearthly geographical anomalies.

Once you arrive, you will discover that Aeternum is anything but an idyllic paradise. Creatures cover the island and grotesque monsters roam free. A powerful and twisted force known as the Corruption has invaded the land and infected everything it comes in contact with.

You must fight corruption, seize control of the land, and compete with other rival explorers to claim your right and secure your inheritance.
