Amazon job posting reveals New World details
Tucked inside the job posting is a description of New World:
New World is a massively multiplayer, open-ended sandbox game that allows you to carve your own destiny with other players in a living, hostile, cursed land. How you play, what you do, and whom you work with or against is up to you. Live on your own amidst the supernatural terrors or join with others to build thriving civilizations. In this evolving world that transforms with the changing of the seasons, weather, and time of day, the only limit is your own ambition.
As for the job itself, the position sounds like it will be a lead community manager in Orange County, California, who believes in “authentic two-way conversations with the player community.” The specialist will be expected to become an expert on New World’s gameplay and lore, engage with the community daily, moderate the forums, and compile “relatable” patch notes. Some of the requirements include playing MMOs or survival games and having run an MMO guild.
Another implication of this listing is that this could be a sign that there’s starting to be movement on New World’s development and public profile. It’s been a while since we initially heard the announcement of this intriguing game, but Amazon Game Studios has been quiet about it as it focused more on promoting its other titles.
