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.
