Amazon’s MMO New World has been delayed once again. The game was previously scheduled to release in Spring 2021, Amazon has pushed back the release date to August 31, 2021.
The development team at Amazon Games explains that the delay was needed to add “substantial improvements while polishing and fine-tuning” the ambitious MMO before it’s finally released.
We’ve been hard at work on compelling end-game features we believe are important to include at launch. These features won’t be ready for the Spring timeframe that we had communicated. With that in mind, we will release New World on August 31, 2021.
Developers confirmed the Alpha test in the month to come and a Closed Beta test will begin on July 20, 2021. The Closed Beta will be available for all pre-order customers.
The Closed Beta test will include new features and content such as:
Filled with lush wetlands and towering cliffs Ebonscale Reach is a new end-game zone in Aeternum. An exiled empress is building a corrupted fleet there that could threaten the entire world.
These five-player instanced adventures will take you to the darkest corners of Aeternum. There, you’ll face dire threats, learn more about the source of Corruption, expose the Angry Earth’s ulterior motives, and reveal the deeper menace behind the Lost. Expect difficult battles that will challenge your group, requiring skill and coordination to achieve victory.
These are 20 vs. 20 battles set in a primordial river basin filled with forgotten ancient technologies and hidden sources of Azoth. You and your team will vie for control of strongholds and strategic resources—and you’ll need all your combat prowess and collective wits to win.
Amazon Games’ New World is an upcoming MMO set in the mysterious island of Aeternum. Players will take the role of a newcomer to the island, they will join a faction or set up a new one with teammates.
