AmazonNew World,A new fantasy MMO was shown during Wednesday’s Gamescom Opening Night Live broadcast.New WorldThe trailer was shown, and the game’s open beta received a release date.New WorldThe game will launch fully on September 28th, but MMO fans can still play the game in an open beta starting September 9.
Officially, the New Worldopen Beta will be held from September 9 to September 12. It is short and sweet. As the name suggests, the open beta is open to everyone. You don’t need to pre-order the game or purchase it. MMO fans will be able to download the game and play it as they like for the duration of the open beta. The game’s full version will still be available, although certain aspects may change between launch and open beta. All progress made in the New World Open Beta will be lost prior to launch.
Amazon makes it clear that the open beta serves as a stress test for New World’s server infrastructure. Servers could be affected by the open beta’s number of participants. It’s better for Amazon to have open beta success than to let the game fail.
Accompanying the announcement of New World‘s open beta was an in-engine cinematic trailer for the MMO. The trailer sets up the story and lore of New World, introducing many of the conflicts that players can expect to discover in-game once they start playing. “I will say a prayer for the souls of your crew,” says a mysterious voice, hinting at the dangers that await players as they journey to the New World and all that awaits on the island.
The premise of the game is also established in the cinematic trailer. The player journeys to the New World for treasure and adventure, but their ship is waylaid before they arrive at the island proper. Players will wash up on the shore of the island, where they’ll have to start their lives from scratch. It’s a prototypical MMO origin story. Of course, New World has a host of exciting storylines to follow from there that should keep players busy for a while yet.
Expect to hear plenty of other details regarding New World‘s upcoming open beta and its full launch in the weeks ahead. New World has spent a long time in development and has gone through a lot of radical changes over the years. It’s going to be exciting to see exactly what kind of MMO the team at Amazon has put together.
