Amazon Games has announced that closed beta testing of the massively multiplayer online game New World will start on 23 July. In addition, the developer shared details of the combat system project. New World is in development for several years.
This is one of the biggest games of Amazon, which is trying to market the gaming industry. In may, Amazon released team shooter Crucible, which has already failed.
New World players will become members of one of three factions that fight each other. You will be able to participate in large-scale PvP-battles in which one faction declares war on another and trying to capture the fortress within a half hour. The siege takes place in the format of “50 to 50”. War can only take place at certain times of the day. In case of large sieges, the attacker can place a siege weapon to break through walls. The faction that wins, takes the territory and receives tax revenues from the region.
However, you will not only compete in PvP, but to fight the legions of the undead and souls who want to wipe people off the face of the island. In New World there are dynamic events in which appear in the open world rifts. Then players can be grouped together to clean up the coming enemies. The project also has a PvE-siege, when people are fighting together against AI opponents, like the giant bears.
On the launch of the New World will offer seven types of weapons, including some magic, swords and pistols. Each of them has the mechanics of pumping, which allows the player to customize their gear based on what branch of arms he was pumped: support, treatment, or damage.
Closed beta New World will be the first large-scale testing of the project. It is designed for users who pre-ordered the game. The launch of the New World is scheduled for 25 August on your PC.
