Amazon is apparently having influencers playtest New World

MMO influencer, fan, and Massively OP reader-slash-heckler Lethality posted publicly to Twitter this morning that he’s playtesting Amazon’s New World.

That’s good news for everyone, of course, and not just for influencers, as it’s another sign the game is not only still in full development but in a playable, or at least demo-able and preview-able, state. And how awesome will it be to not have to keep using the same couple of images to talk about the game? Pretty awesome.

What makes me wonder is why Lethality is the first/best/only/most notable that Amazon picked. Someone in their Marketing and/or Product Management team sucks.

May not have been just him, could be a community thing via Discord or other means.

Remember when when Wildstar went F2P?

NOBODY let Lethality forget that.

There’s also the very distinct possibility that it was bullshit.

he’s live bloggign it on his twitter.

and it’s legit.

which is a major turn off for me and friends if this is who amazon has chosen to be an ambassador of their products.

i mean there’s several red flags and such already with this studio, but they couldn’t have made a poorer choice than getting lethality to shill for them.

but ye the thought occured to me that if lethality is the only source of this claim then it’s likely bullshit. but he posted a pic with some amazon game studio wall logo thing and some random dudes wearing amazon logoed golf shirts so…

idk maybe he finally snapped and is on some mission to break into amazon studios? XD

I don’t agree with most of what Lethality says here but I don’t know him beyond his comments here so will not make any judgements about him as a person. So I wish him all the best and hope he has a fun time with this playtesting.

As the article mentions I hope that this might herald some actual real information about the New World mmo and maybe even some actual footage.

While I can agree with on the way he presents himself outside of our MOP circle might be more well mannered and compelling. I can never bring myself to support his new found gaming position in the community. As he’s been pretty awful to us, to put it mildly…both in argument and presentation. I suppose though this will make him grow, become more well rounded and be a better communicator hopefully…as his voice now comes with a degree more responsibility and higher standards.

I was about to write that I could not agree less with someone than Lethality on games and pretty much anything else. I have no problem judging him as a right bastard.

That said, good for him. Do what you love and game on.

I’m still going with the assumption that this will be a game developed from the ground up with Twitch in mind, so winning influencers over would be an obvious goal as game systems come together.

if lethality has a twitch account that he streams from i couldn’t find one.

his whole claim to influencerhood is 4.5~k followers on twitter.

that’s it.
