Amazon Games Studio's upcoming action MMORPG New World launches for PC in May 2020

Amazon Games Studio's upcoming action MMORPG New World will launch for PC in May 2020. A closed beta test will be available in April 2020, though progress made will be wiped before the full launch. More details on the game can be found on the official website. The Steam page is here.

The game will be available in two versions, a base $39.99 option and a deluxe $49.99 option that includes additional skins, emotes, pets, and a digital artbook. Pre-orders will also add a few extra goodies for either version, and details can be found on the website. The page also states the game will have in-app purchases.

New World has been in development at Amazon since around 2016, and a closed alpha test ended earlier this year. A couple of outlets have gone live with previews for the game, such as PCGamer and Eurogamer.

Fate has summoned you to the shores of Aeternum, the Eternal Isle. Overcome the brutal legions of The Corrupted and draw battle lines with competing players in this land of danger and opportunity. In a land hell-bent on your destruction, what will you do to survive? Strike out alone to forge your own heroic path, or band together, fortify, and fight.


Under the surface of Aeternum’s breathtaking landscape lay the seeds of an ancient evil that plots to erase all traces of humanity from its shores. Warriors of bygone ages, doomed adventurers, and creatures of legend have all succumbed to its corruption. It must be stopped.

Combine skill and strength in melee combat, attack at range with precision, or master arcane attacks. However you choose to fight, you’ll need to forge, discover, and customize powerful weapons to fit your combat style. In epic wars with other players or holding back waves of The Corrupted, your combat skills will mean the difference between life and death.

Unite players with in-game social systems that power organization, hierarchy, and command and control of formidable in-game Companies. Venture out with your own intrepid party to battle The Corrupted or to seize the land and treasure of your enemies. A thriving Company consists of master craftsmen, fearless soldiers, guileful traders, and strong leaders. Where do your strengths lie?

As you explore Aeternum, you will discover beauty, danger, and opportunity at every turn. Bend the wilds to your will by hunting fierce beasts for food and crafting materials and harvesting valuable resources from the land to fuel your ascent to power. Leverage geographic advantages to control rare resources to accelerate the growth of your territory.
