Amazon’s New World has just kicked off its don’t-call-it-a-beta beta preview event. The event is a follow-on to last month’s density stress test (seriously, is there a reason we keep inventing new terms for tests), but unlike that event, this one requires the new client and doesn’t come under an NDA, meaning you’re about to be inundated with streams and fanboying and snarky hot takes from all the folks who qualified for the test. Just remember that the info gleaned from the earlier test is still under NDA. You’ll have the whole week to play, as the servers aren’t set to go down until September 4th.
Haven’t decided where to play just yet? Last night, Amazon posted a massive list of servers to help you and your mates choose.
MOP’s Eliot Lefebvre leaped into a press event covering siege gameplay yesterday; we published his impressions earlier today. Spoilers: He was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was!
Later today, MOP’s MJ Guthrie will be streaming the game for OPTV, so you can check it out vicariously through the stream if you aren’t personally in the test.
Have fun folks!
