Who I am
Elia Tabuenca GarcĂ­a

Amazon Game Studios' long-awaited MMO has been in development for quite some time now, but now the release date for New World is approaching. For those unfamiliar, the game takes place on a magical island called Aeternum in the 17th century, where “the fundamental laws of life and death do not apply”. Players are shipwrecked in this mysterious land and will make use of the rare material found there called 'Azoth' to become more and more powerful.

However, there are no classes in New World. Instead, you can customize your build by choosing to specialize in specific weapons, increasing your stat points as you level up, and investing time in trading skills. Combat is designed to have a high skill cap, requiring you to aim your attacks and avoid or defend your enemies' attacks. You can even defeat higher level players in PvP if you play correctly.

New World is currently in alpha, so while many of the game's systems have been completed, it's possible they will receive substantial tweaks before the New World release date arrives.

Release date of

New World's release date is August 31, 2021, following a closed beta that will begin on July 20.

Do you need an Amazon subscription to play New World?

No, you can access the game through a one-time purchase. There is a standard edition and a deluxe edition available for purchase.

Beta do New World

The New World closed beta starts on July 20th and is open to players who have already pre-ordered the game. The New World alpha is currently happening.

Pre-ordering isn't the only way to access the beta, however. You can fill out a form on the New World website for an opportunity to access alpha and/or closed beta. However, keep in mind that progress from the closed beta will not carry over to launch.

New World Progression

As mentioned earlier, there are no class systems in New World. Instead, you gain Weapon Mastery using a specific weapon, eventually unlocking skill points and abilities. You can put points on multiple weapons, but you are only able to fully unlock one.

Experience gained in combat and missions will also give you stat points to spend on strength, dexterity, intelligence, concentration, and constitution. After spending a certain amount of points on one of these attributes – 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 – you unlock additional bonuses.

Armas do New World

There are four categories of weapons:

New World combat system

Combat in New World is a little different than what you're used to in other MMOs. You cannot automatically aim at enemies or cycle between them. You must aim every attack accurately, including projectiles. It has been compared to Dark Souls as you have to block, dodge and watch your timing. This will presumably make PVP much more skill-based than stat-based.

New World JXJ

Early New World builds allowed open PvP in which players could kill each other outside of safe areas, which led to player killers being labeled as criminals. However, that wasn't enough to discourage high-level players from attacking low-level players repeatedly, so Amazon Game Studios changed this to an optional faction-based system. There are 'bonuses' for unlocking your PvP flag, such as better experience and rewards.

They also added New World wars which are 50 vs 50 PvP clashes as well as forts which can be fought and controlled by different factions. If your faction controls the nearby fort, you gain more experience and influence in that area, and each fort grants global buffs unique to the controlling faction.

New World Factions

Players must choose a faction after reaching level 10. Factions are:

  • Marauders
  • Syndicate
  • Covenant

New World Settlements

Guilds in New World are known as companies and can take control of plots of land, turning them into towns and cities. You can only join a company of the same faction. Players can purchase housing for New World players in settlements. They can also be attacked by rival siege companies or by NPCs. Fortunately, if control of a settlement is lost, your personal abode will not be taken over.

New World Expeditions

Expeditions are instanced dungeons that drop unique weapons, armor, and materials. They are designed for small groups of up to five players. To access expeditions, the party needs a Tuning Orb, which you can either craft or acquire as a quest reward.

New World crafting system

The New World has a detailed crafting system. There are seven professions: weaponsmithing, armoring, jewelcrafting, engineering, arcana, and cooking. There are also gathering skills: mining, fur, logging and harvesting and also refining skills: smelting, cutting, woodworking, leather and weaving.
