New World Gets Development Update Video
Amazon Games released a new video addressing the current status of MMORPG New World. The 50-minute video features Game Director Scot Lane and Creative Director David Verfaillie, as well as other members of the development team. It covers topics including player friction, the game’s February update, server merges, and combat and game modes.
New World released for PC in 2021 and is set in a world inspired by the 17th-century age of expedition, with players being part of the colonisation effort of Aeternum Island. The game features classless combat that is designed to accentuate player skill. Multiplayer options include 100-player War siege battles, 40-player Outpost Rush area control battles, five-player Expedition dungeons, and 50-player Invasions as players fight off waves of monsters.
