Amazon’s MMO New World Invites Players to Explore Aeternum Today on PC

Time to Journey to a New World

After some delays, Amazon Games’ new MMO New World is finally launching today. This game invites players to the haunted island of Aeternum, a place where the laws of life and death have begun to break down.

Set in the twilight of the Age of Exploration, players will find themselves shipwrecked on the supernatural island–and sucked into its mysteries. From there, you’ll fight, gather supplies, and craft new items, all while exploring the island and uncovering the many secrets of Aeternum.

Players will be able to band together in huge factions to battle for control of the map in multiplayer mode, or explore alone or in small groups to explore the island. New World features deep, visceral combat where every choice matters. The island is riddled with twisted creatures distorted after centuries of death and revival, so you’ll have to hone your weapon skills and master the real-time action combat in order to survive.

“More than 1 million players have already set foot in Aeternum during our Beta tests, and today we are thrilled to welcome even more adventurers into New World,” said Christoph Hartmann, vice president of Amazon Games. “New World’s epic battles, skill-based combat, beautiful setting, and deep crafting and progression make it a game you can really get lost in. And because Aeternum is a living world, created to change and evolve over time, today is only the beginning—we have so much more in store for players.”

Key features include:

  • 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 of players controls contested territories 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 player vs. environment and player vs. player combat.
  • 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. 
  • Invasions: Twisted armies of Aeternum muster their forces to assault player-controlled territories, and groups of 50 players rally together to fight off waves of monsters.

New World is now available on PC.
