New World’s Edengrove tempts you to take a bite of its apple

Who’s ready for some sweet eye candy? New World continues to serve that sort of thing up in spades in its zone tour videos, the latest of which is up and featuring the gorgeous region of Edengrove.

As the name implies, Edengrove is a bright and bustling northern zone with a garden theme (and a whole bunch of dryads). However, the developers warn players not to let the area’s beauty overshadow the fact that Edengrove is a high-level zone that’s full of danger and sparse in settlements. In fact, there are only two places of refuge: Valor Hold and Last Stand Outpost.

Eyes will definitely be drawn to Malevolence, a towering dungeon that stands at the middle of the zone. Give it a watch and let us know what you think of this potential endgame region:

Continuing their fine tradition of cliche names, I see.

Looks solid, much like the other zones, but the names still feel like they are pulling them out of a “generic fantasy name” hat.

I can’t help but wonder if one of the reasons they (Amazon) decided to drop the new LOTR game is because they realized they would be producing two, very similar looking/designed MMORPGS alongside each other and decided to just focus on New World?

Highly likely. I’m convinced that the MMO Blizzard was working on that got scrapped and the pieces put together into Overwatch got scrapped because Activision acquired Bungie and Destiny 2.

Doubtful. If anything, they’d have dropped New World in favor of the mega-IP LOTR. I think it’s been pretty well established that it was a rights issue.

I agree with you, LOTR is a big IP, but also means they are restricted in what they can do with it. With New World, they have the creative freedom to fuck up spectacularly or succeed spectacularly… or just have a mediocre game.

Pretty well established by whom? I specifically remember a joint PR statement from the folks who own the rights to the IP and the folks making the MMORPG that it was a collaborative project, etc.

It was plainly stated a while back, you might have missed it.

Basically the other company, Leyou, after being bought out, by Tencent, had a dispute with Amazon over certain things about the mmo. When things couldn’t be worked out both dropped the project.

I’ll just have to wait and see with this one tbh. They made a 180 on development focus.

My thoughts with their record so far is what happens if this is not a “huge” success even if it just does “ok”. Will they just scrap it and shut it down completely or actually continue supporting it?

On first glance, looks good but game could do with some nore critters or other small creatures that gives it that more alive feeling.

Animation was a bit jittering here and there looking at the tiger but the action movements do look good like the crocodile leaping forward.

I guess this was also to send the message that they are indeed working on endgame PvE content.

Shaping up to being an interesting MMO that is still somewhat rough around the edges, hope there is a solid foundation of systems in place at launch and it will do well.

Slightly biased as i am interested in playing this at launch, it does not quite blow me away but i am looking for something solid in the online realm of semi casual playing, whatever that means ;D
