Amazon’s New World MMO dispatches more alpha invites, teases locales and armor images

    
21

It’s been a while since we checked in with New World’s Twitter feed and… ahhh! A whole bunch of miniature videos and screenshots and other ephemera to tide everyone over. To wit: Here’s an animated setting of an outpost.

Mysterious statues:

Red Mountain:

(Just kidding. That’s Morrowind. We don’t know what this is.)

Some kind of magical tech well:

A nifty time-elapse video on building a fort:

And a bunch of a new screenshots:

Apparently, yet another round of alpha invites have gone out ahead of the weekend. The NDA remains in place.

Hungry for more? We had a hands-on with the game earlier this winter.

I’ve been in the Alpha since it started. I just wanted to check it out. That type of genre isn’t really my thing. But what I can say is the game runs very smooth, really smoooth. Never any lag and frame rate is constant. I just can’t review because I don’t play ARK-like-games, and it kind of is. But performance wise, it runs great.

That’s one thing I’ve been impressed with. It’s the most stable and polished alpha I’ve ever played.

This game is 80% ARk and 20% MMO.

I love the realistic look of the graphics. I could see myself getting immersed in the world very easily. The game hasn’t really been on my radar and I’m rather this side of neutral about it still, but I’m curious to see how it pans out now.

I just got an alpha invite. Hopefully I didn’t break the NDA by sharing that lol

It looks so bland as far as style. The graphics aren’t bad per se but between the subject matter and the dull look of everything, it just doesn’t have any appeal for me.

I’m looking forward to checking this one out.

I don’t have to worry about an NDA because I will never get access to this game. lol.

Man, I can’t put my finger on it but something seems a bit “off” to me with those character models. They generally look great, specifically the armor, but there’s just something about it that’s…I dunno, weird. Like they look simultaneously almost AAA quality and indie quality at the same time.

There are some proportions there that look disturbing. The clothes don’t sit naturally on some of those shots (there’s no weight to them) and the heads seem in the wrong place.
Might just be the level of customization allows such. I can’t say for sure.

They look like their inflated with air like balloons.

And that looks like men’s clothing on the women. I find that to be off putting.

It’s because the idle pose has their arms out away from the body, presumably to avoid any clipping issues.

We’re off on the super duper hardcore frontier and everyone looks as clean and shiny as if they just stepped off the assembly line.

Armors look good (I like the Witchhunter one) but too bad it’s PvP. Backgrounds, art and settings look nice, but too bad it’s PvP.

Know what? I’ll just end everything I say here with “…but too bad it’s PvP” and that should sum it all up.

Too bad its PvP or I’d be getting interested in this game…

PvE is basically game cancer right now. It isn’t different than the late 80s/90s pop culture. Street Fighter, Quake…it’s just now everyone can participate.

They have plenty of half baked kickstarters for you guys though. lol.

If I’m going to die from cancer then sign me up for some PVE cancer.

Ahh PvP, the developers lazy way of avoiding wasting time on creating content. They should just make Anthem open pvp and call it feature complete.
