Amazon’s New World is apparently slated for 2020, according to new Steam page

Still an MMO, preorders open now, CBT set for April 2020


Amazon Game Studios has been teasing some sort of reveal for its MMORPG New World all week, which has surely been a comfort to MMO players worried after the studio took the game’s always-on alpha offline last May for a major revamp of features. Starting last Saturday, the game’s Twitter account had been posting short video clips of a tree, emblazoned with a V, IV, III, II, and I – obviously a countdown, and obviously undergoing some sort of decay.

As the teases progressed, we assumed the countdown was for some sort of reveal at The Game Awards show tonight, which has now been confirmed by the game’s own Twitter account.

But the bigger news is that eagle-eyed Redditors noticed that the game now has a fully public Steam page and a release date of 2020, along with some preorder prices of $39.99 and $49.99 and an apparent closed beta date of April 2020. It’s not entirely clear from the game’s brief descriptions on Steam what exactly has changed in the gameplay mechanics during these blackout months, though the studio is still calling it an MMO, so we’ll be tuning into the show tonight to find out.

MOP reader Raimo points out the official site has now been updated with some new bits too. The preorder page appears to have the same info as Steam, but there’s a new development blog with new pics as well.
