Pre-order customers are invited to explore Aeternum before launch on August 31.
New World, the upcoming massively multiplayer online (MMO) PC game from Amazon Games, has entered Closed Beta. The Beta test will run until August 2, giving players a chance to explore the mysterious island of Aeternum ahead of the game’s August 31 launch.
New World’s closed beta is open to all players who have pre-ordered the game. Pre-orders are available for purchase on Amazon.com or the Steam Store. New World is $39.99 for the Standard Edition, or $49.99 for the Deluxe Edition, with no monthly subscription fees. Players can also sign up here for a chance to be randomly selected to join the closed beta test.
New World is an open-world massively multiplayer online role-playing game that pits players against the haunted wilderness of Aeternum, a mysterious island in the twilight of the Age of Exploration. Success in New World ultimately depends on the player’s ability to conquer not only rival players but Aeternum itself, as it unleashes undead legions hell-bent on purging players from its shores.
Closed beta players will be ushered into the world of Aeternum, a vast, magical island that has drawn explorers from around the globe. New World features robust PvE and PvP content including:
- Expeditions: Five-player instanced dungeons that take players into the farthest corners and deepest depths of Aeternum, where they’ll face deadly foes and uncover truths about the island.
- War: Epic siege warfare on a massive scale, with up to 100 players on the battlefield at once. The outcome of each war determines which company controls contested territory or settlements—and the resources they contain.
- Outpost Rush: Teams of 20 players from two competing factions fight for control of fortifications and resources in this max-level instanced game mode that combines PvE and PvP play.
- Invasions: Twisted armies of Aeternum muster their forces to assault player-controlled territory, and groups of 50 max-level players rally together to fight off waves of monsters.
