MMO gamers are gearing up for stress testing in Amazon’s New World today and into the weekend. As we previously posted, today’s event kicks off at 5 p.m. EDT. Alpha players and Amazon preorder players who bought the game before July 26th should’ve already gotten their keys and access info, while Steam preorder players will need to follow the New World community page or Steam to figure out how to get in. Amazon says some beta signer-uppers who registered prior to July 9th will also receive invites to this event.
“In preparation for New World Preview, we will need the community’s help in preparing our servers to ensure stability at scale. A Density Test will be hosted on our US server beginning on Thursday, 7/30/2020. Come help ensure the servers are ready for New World Preview. Please note that the Density Test will be under NDA, unlike the New World Preview in August. For this Density Test, we will be inviting all Alpha Testers, everyone who pre-ordered on or before July 26th and a random selection of Beta sign ups received on or before July 9th to join in and play alongside the New World team. Due to the need to have a large wave of players in the game at the same time, we will begin rolling out Density Test invites a few days prior to the start of 7/30/2020 at 2:00 PM PT. While the Density Test may only run for a short window of time, it is a critical piece of our preparation for New World Preview, and your help is very important.”
Do note that the event is under NDA.
