Amazon Game Studios has entered the world of gaming in a grand style with its first MMORPG release New World. And within a day of its release, the game has become the company’s biggest hit of all time! Being an MMORPG game, it has all the elements that can make it a must-play and players all around the world are just loving it.
The beta sessions of the game had strong early expressions from the critics and we do not doubt the fact after we saw what the full version has to offer. The game promises to be a complete blast package with the elements of role-playing included in it.
New World will be using a buy-to-play business model. So the question is, will it be free-to-play? Here is everything you need to know about the payment and play status of the game.
Is New World Free-To-Play in Particular?
The answer is no. New World is not a free-to-play game and it does not have a monthly subscription fee either. If you remember, Amazon Studios was working on another MMO inspired by the Lord of Rings alongside New World. The leaks suggested that the game was scheduled to be a free-to-play one until it got cancelled. So the company does not look to have any grudges towards the free-to-play game style.
New World is a buy-to-play game where players have to buy the game once upfront and then play it for as long as they want. The point to remember is that once the players buy the game, they do not have to make any other recurring payments anytime. The game is available on Steam and Amazon. The Steam page features both the Standard and the Deluxe edition, with the price of $39.99 and $49.99 respectively.
This may be kind of a disappointment for the players who wanted to have a full experience of the game without lavishing a penny, given that the other massive open-world RPG games like Genshin Impact go free-to-play. But New World promises to offer one hell of a premium experience with its amazing content combined with the roleplaying elements. So spending the amount is never going to hurt much.
Do you remember that Amazon Studio’s cancelled MMO game the Lord of Rings was planned to be a free-to-play game? What does this mean? This means that the game may go free-to-play in the future just like Lord of the Rings Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic did! At least we can hope for that to happen!
New World is free-to-play after upfront purchasing but it also involves in-game purchases. Just like other games like Valorant, PUBG, Apex Legends, etc., players can spend real time money to buy various cosmetic items as well as boosters through the in-game store.
According to the company, the in-game purchases are completely optional for the players and they have no intentions of giving certain players the edge over the others. So the plans are to expand the in-game store for everyone soon! Players can purchase themed apparel, weapon skins, house pets, decors, emotes and many more in the game!
