It’s already been a crazy busy summer for MMO tests, patches, expansions, and launches — and we are far from done. One of the big tentpole releases for the year is still on its way, as Amazon’s New World is coming out in late August.
And I’m looking forward to it. I am. I don’t need a new MMORPG to play to occupy my time, but I will gladly try this out. I like the aesthetic and world building (it reminds me a lot of Secret World in some ways), and I think it has a lot of potential if it can rise above some of its more mediocre design elements to hook players.
So I guess my expectations for New World is that it will be decently entertaining and a solid hit that will finally prove that Amazon can launch a successful game. Not super-high expectations, but that’s what I’m thinking right now. What about you? What expectations do you have for this upcoming MMORPG?
