New World’s latest trailer invites you to ‘carve a new destiny’

    
21

We’re now just six days away from the launch of Amazon’s New World, with the hype charging waaaaay up as the MMORPG genre is getting what could well become the biggest launch we’ve had in literally years. The studio has dropped yet another trailer this week as part of its “Legends” series on the “supernatural and mysterious history” of Aeternum, but the one-minute video is largely just a vehicle for showing off cool graphics and offer a spooky call-to-arms for would-be players.

“Now, fate has chosen you, given you a second chance in life, to join the struggle of ages and mythic powers, to choose your allies, to fight – to carve a new destiny,” the narrator intones. Enjoy!

The fire animation at the end was clipping through the helmet ? I watched it again, it ‘s not.

Did they actually add some decent PVE content or are you all just getting excited over a glorified Gank Box that’s propped up by a major company?

6 dungeons
11 zones
300 rep levels to grind out for each zone
14? crafting professions
200 levels for each crafting profession
11 weapon skill lines
20 levels for each weapon

Have you been living under a rock? I hate when people use those words “Gank Box” too. Do you ever post comments that aren’t full of snark?

I watched a few other review videos, PVE is uninspired, the Dungeons have hardly any mechanics and the enemies are just mobs from the open world. According to Fextralite the story feels like a series of generic side quests, the quests them selves are all basic and repetitive.

Yeah I did my research.

So let me rephrase, does it have quality PVE, or is it just a Gank Box?

It probably depends on what you’re comparing it to.
I’m a PvE player excited for New World, but keeping my expectations for endgame content low. Hopefully they’re working on regular updates to keep interest high.
I imagine if you’re looking for something like FFXIV or WoW, then NW won’t be for you.
It looks similar to ESO to me, which I mainly just focused on crafting and solo grinding. That’s what I’m planning to do in NW.
I hope they’re going to add more enemy/monster variety, too.
Sounds like they’ve been listening to player feedback so far..

If it were like ESO then it would have a compelling main story, compiling side quests, every zone would have 6 instanced small Dungeons, each zone would have 1 normal sized Dungeon, the original launch of ESO had roughly 16 full sized zones and 6 small beginner maps.

I dont talk about PVP so I wouldn’t know.

Ok. It just seems similar to me in some ways. I don’t know…looks like fun but might not be for you.

My guess is your research wasn’t very thorough. It can’t be a Gankbox if you MUST CHOOSE to flag for PvP.

Reader

If you don’t flag then you have about as much engaging content as those crappy paper place mats they used to give kids in diners with 2 or three broken crayons that would keep them engaged for 2 seconds until the condensation from the cubs of water no one ever touched would start disintegrating the place mat.

Oh and try not to be some basic trope, the bored gamer that starts White Knighting a game that hasn’t even been released yet?

…to…to…follow a guide to max level as fast as possible and then whine there is nothing to do.

With Endwalker still nearly 2 months away, I’m going to give New World another chance. Granted, I’m probably going to go against the grain and just take my time, experience the world and not bother too much with the pvp stuff at all and see how it goes.

When I tried it in closed beta I was almost going to refund it about 2 hours in. My wife said I didnt give it much of a chance so I jumped back in and after playing 100’s of hours in the CB/OB I’m absolutely hooked. And yes take your time, explore, gather, craft and pvp when ready

Taking my time as well, but will PVP plenty, crafting in this game is amazing.

I’m just happy we’re getting a AAA launch that isnt some isometric grinder, or a narrow niche pvp title, or another Black Desert super stylized gender locked cashbox.

I don’t see big difference in art style for New World and Black Desert, and I don’t consider them to be stylized.
To me stylized games are games like WoW or Genshin Impact.

The game world looks interesting. My issue is the game setting isn’t doing much of anything for me. As if they didn’t invest into building a deep, immersive, lore filled world that makes me want to dive in and explore it. :(

I was more excited for the setting when it was going to be set in a more colonial Americas kind of setting and draw from Native American mythology, which was what they said in their very first video ages ago. Not that they would have necessarily handled the subject particularly well, but it was at least something different.

Now it’s ancient aliens with a hodgepodge of cultures piled together, and an evil red cloud as the baddy. It feels like they went for the safest possible option, which is understandable, but still disappointing.

Still looking forward to the game though.

Yup, the original world concept were more interesting to me as well though I do understand why they ended up backing away from it. It was too easy to misstep and end up with a lot of issues that they wouldn’t want to deal with.

That someone(s) early in the development didn’t realize this and point it out still surprises me. Basically they should have never gone down that route and should have brought on a talented writer to develop a world for them if they didn’t want to say buy the rights to some already loved IP.
