All right, I’ve finally figured it out: New World’s current map is basically Game of Thrones’ map. Which is certainly appropriate, given the shared source material and context and likely content too. However, that’s not a permanent picture, as is becoming clearer with each new reveal from Amazon Game Studios.
Over the weekend, the studio tweeted out an update to the alpha map that shows more and more land coming into focus, with a much larger area covered by a visible fog of war. So hey, it won’t remind you of Westeros forever – at least not on the map.
Take a peek.
