Amazon’s New World gives a peek into the eerie Weaver’s Fen

    
13

If you haven’t figured it out by now, Amazon’s New World isn’t going to feature nonstop lush golf course landscapes. The supernaturally tainted game world is a place full of creepy, eerie, and oppressive areas, just like how the deep woods feel at night when your flashlight goes off.

The studio gave us an example of the zone variety this past weekend as it showed off a pair of screenshots from a region known as Weaver’s Fen. The first picture shows a deserted stone ruin (fort?) with dead trees littering the ground around it, while the second marches up the stairs to where an imposing statue glares down on the viewer in the light of the moon.

It’s not much, but it does give us a little more of the atmosphere of the game. New World is currently taking sign-ups for its alpha program.

Another mmo shooter? I am very hesitant about this game at the moment.

Man, I’m so curious about this one.

I’m sure it’s rough in it’r current alpha state, but I really hope this turns out to at least be decent. It would be nice to see a new AAA MMO developed by new company.

Weaver’s Fen, huh. So what are we thinking, giant spiders? :)

Those are beautiful screenies. I like what I see and I might drum up some interest enough to watch development for a little while. Unless it’s open-world free-for-all PvP, then I’m out.

It’s open-world free-for-all PvP. I’m holding out hope for some alternate-rules servers with more restricted PvP.

Fallout 76 works pretty good actually.

Sometimes you have to roll with change, give it a try, and see what happens. You never know, sometimes it’s only a matter of leaving your comfort zone and trying it out to truly know if you’ll be happier or not. If not, nothing stopping you from returning to your comfort zone.

I’ve been in the Fallout 76 beta’s and there are a few things that yea, i’m not accustomed too, but as you learn more of how things works it’s not so bad, only something new to adjust too.

An example would be i set up my camp, really nice 3 by 3 cabin, rooftop, separate rooms, and the location omg, perfect spot in game.

Well a little too perfect, a high traffic zone, 2 players come in and literally start destroying it. tbh i’m stunned, what the heck you guys doing, really??? So i log out, log back in, the place disappears they have nothing to destroy anymore, they are gone and i had to replace a wall, big woo.

I go exploring, come back later, place is still there, explore awhile longer, log out, come back awhile later and yep, the whole place is literally gone, someone else put a place there, never build in high traffic zone.

So instead of destroying theirs (someone else will soon enough) i put down my cabin in a low traffic zone in the middle of a forest and as far as i know the place is still standing. Worst case, to replace it, you have to click a button and your entire structure comes back as the way you built it. It’s really not a big deal overall no matter what happens, but at first when i saw molotov cocktails, grenades and bombs going off in my cabin (i’m lmao now, it’s a good story) but at the moment i’m like fuck this game.

New World sadly isn’t like that. It’s your standard full loot gankbox. Not to mention a healthy dose of unmoderated text and voice chat just littered with racism, homophobia, and other general bigotry.

I enjoy PvP, but I absolutely will not pay money to put up with the worst humanity has to offer.

Strange that they list their recommended system requirements, and not any minimum ones. Is it really only DX12 and Windows 10? Given the poor market figures for Windows 10 which is still trailing behind Windows 7 I have some sympathy for developers if they are putting all their eggs in the Windows 10 basket.

the recommended may actually be the range that they want for the alpha. the playable me be totally different.

It runs fine on Win 7 as long as the rest of your machine is decent. That being said. Win 7 will be dead January 2020, so for any game currently in development, they really only need to support Win 10 unless they’re releasing before the end of next year. Nobody will be able to use Win 7 past that date anyway.

Plenty will be using Windows 7 past that date if past experience with the end of Windows XP is anything to go by, especially as (a) many still do not see Windows 10 as an improvement, and (b) Windows Updates are now so routinely screwed up with Microsoft seen by many to be posing a greater threat to the stability of systems than third party malware such that it’s become a moot point as to whether the end of support for Windows 7 is something to be mourned or celebrated!

Given the continuing commercial failure of Windows 10 (remember, it was given away free over three years ago and still has less than 40% market share), developers would certainly be wise to ensure future products are backwards compatible with both Windows 7 and 8.1.

Sure, but if the guys that WROTE the operating system aren’t going to support it, why should a third party vendor even try? (that’s not to say that it won’t physically run on Windows 7 but why would Amazon spend $$$/effort on a dead OS by launch?)

I’m sure OP has a source for those numbers, as I’m sure those include companies. My company (15000+ workers) is at Windows 8. Obviously though, any serious company WILL have to switch to Windows 10 when the security updates stop in 2020, unless they’re prepared to pay M$ through the nose for extended support.
