New World, New Beginnings
On September 28, 2021, Amazon Games released “New World,” a clear MMORPG or massively multiplayer online role-playing game. It was developed by Amazon Games Orange County and published by Amazon Games. It was said that this game was scheduled to be released last year in May. But then it was moved to August 2021. However, it got delayed again. Luckily, the game was successfully made a debut on the last week of September 2021.
The synopsis of this game began in the mid-17th century were players had colonized a fictional land. This fictional land was said to be modeled after the Americas. The goal of the game is to create and survive. So, as players, your goal is to survive and thrive in this New World.
Also, unlike other video games, New World is created in a buy-to-play game model than the usual subscription. Have we mentioned that the game itself offers microtransactions? These microtransactions are made in the form of skins. Isn’t it amazing? Well, better check the game to know more.
Great Things About New World
The game is very well designed and visually pleasing, especially when you compare it to other similar games. Borrowing from centuries of European culture, the art style is more of a European folk art style that is of a magical and slightly medieval vibe. The style is comprised of a mixture of realism and fantasy. The art style is not a traditional MMO art style, more of a casual art style. However, it’s a very high-quality casual art style.
The colors and textures in the game are well done, meaning that the colors and textures of the game do not hurt the visual quality of the graphics. We commend the developers of this game for creating such a mystical world Aeternum, where the game takes place. The quality of the graphics is very good, but the graphics are not the best. In the end, the graphics of the game can be said great.
Also, this game offers players an action-oriented combat system, which makes the game even more exciting, unlike other MMOs.
Other Things That We Don’t Like in This New World
Here are some of the things that we don’t like about this game:
Missing in-game content. What is even worse is that the developers seem to be lost in their own game.
Questing is terrible. It only has two types of missions: traversing from point A to B, killing or defeating a character, and returning. Also, picking a certain object is also a part of the mission. While it may be acceptable to some, we can’t blame other players for having such high expectations with the visuals that it offers.
The Player-vs-Player game is weak. While the economy and power balance are interesting to play for PVP, but to win in this game without getting anything substantial, well, it’s unpleasant.
There are two words you should know about New World: challenging and difficult. New World is a difficult and challenging game that requires you to use your brain and your reflexes. Every once in a while, a game comes along that changes the way we think about games.
The difficult part of this game is that it has a lot of shortcomings. We may have listed only a few here in our review, but there are other things it is up to you to discover. This game might still be in its earliest days, but if developers level up and solve its shortcomings, players are sure to enjoy exploring the New World.
