Because Amazon Studios is releasing its most awaited multiplayer game, New World, this summer’s dip in high-profile video games will go even deeper. Originally intended to be published in May of last year, the game’s release was delayed due to the pandemic, and it was rescheduled for 2021. The game will fit under the MMO gaming genre, which is now dominated by World of Warcraft.
Players can join one of three factions (Marauders, Syndicate, or Covenant), use node resources, create things, acquire control over towns, quest, explore the environment, or battle other players or creatures.
Because there are no auto-locked targeting attacks in the game, aiming requires a steady hand. With each level, the hostile mobs’ offensive behaviour skill sets get more complex and powerful, requiring the player to counter with timed attacks, dodges, weapon blocks, retreats, or crawling stealth to save mana, stamina, and health. Bow, hammer, hatchet, fire staff, life staff, musket, spear, sword/shield, and ice gauntlet are presently available in the weapon skill tree.
The game would be based on a fictional island called Aeternum Island, located in the Atlantic Ocean. As a multiplayer game, a major chunk of questions is regarding the number of players on the server. We got some answers from the developers.
How Many Players Will Be On Your Server?
The developers were asked about the number of players who can join the adventurous server. Replying to this FAQ, Amazon Studies Orange County said:
You’ll be adventuring alongside over 1,000 other players in Aeternum.
This would be an intense multiplayer battle in Aeternum Island, as more than a thousand players would be joining the game. The game will be launched on August 31 this year, with a closed beta commencing on July 20. However, the game is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and Steam.
