New World is already gearing up for its ‘preview event’ next week


As August marches onward, New World fans are eagerly anticipating the promised preview event launching on August 25th, which will let in all the folks who’ve signed up for the beta, participated in past alphas, or pre-ordered the game. August 25th, of course, was meant to be the game’s launch date this summer, but Amazon delayed the game into spring, opting to run more tests and continue developing the game instead.

We don’t have all the details for this event yet, as Amazon is promising more “later this week,” but we do know that the company is adding servers for the South America and Asia Pacific regions, and that it’ll reveal the game’s content creator program. We also know that player progress from the density test last month will be wiped, so everyone will be started from scratch. And finally, we know that this beta will run for only a “limited time” – don’t be expecting to play straight on until the spring launch.

Amazon has clarified that it’s not actually calling this a beta test. “Please know that the upcoming event is a preview event, and not a beta phase of the test yet.”
