New World, the MMO from Amazon is finally coming this summer, and Amazon has shown a glimpse of its few new contents as they have added to the game since last year’s alpha. The game now features two new zones, the misty Chinese-inspired Ebonscale Reach, and the grungy pirate-infested Reekwater. They also revealed some of the game’s bosses, including Reekwater’s Siren Queen, Ebonscale Reach’s Empress, and enigmatic red-eyed Isabella.
The new video also shows us some of New World’s 5-player co-op Expeditions, including the imposing Amrine Excavation, lush Garden of Genesis, and creepy Dynasty Shipyard. A total of six Expeditions will be featured at the launch. Also, you can check out the New World Deep Dive video.
It seems that New World is really shaping up pretty well! Here is a quick description.
“For thousands of years the mysterious island of Aeternum has been the source of fantastical legends—and now you’ve found it. Shipwrecked, with no supplies or allies, you’ll need to make your way in a dangerous world where the fundamental laws of life and death don’t apply. Magic flows through Aeternum. It brings life: miraculous healing, reanimation of the dead, and strange flora with magical properties. And it brings horror: the power to cause untold destruction and the slow wasting of the soul through countless cycles of death and resurrection.”
“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 is launching on August 31 for PC. The closed beta of the game is going to hit on July 20 for all those who have done the pre-order.
