Steam preloading for Amazon’s New World has begun

Hype.

MMO gamers, start your engines: You can now begin downloading New World on Steam ahead of the launch tomorrow. Amazon’s been disapatching Steam codes this morning as well, so if you signed up in the long long ago, make sure you check your email account.

Do note that this is a staggered launch; server-up is 8 a.m. EDT for those of us at the MOP home office, but EU players will be in there while we’re sleeping. Make sure you’ve picked out which of the nearly 200 servers you’ll be on!

Oh, and if you’re not too worried about spoilers and need some New World reading to do while you wait, you could check out this trove of info – or as we like to call it, how to ruin the game for yourself in 100 infographics or less.

Just eyeing the queues for the EU servers right now. There are tens of thousands of people in queue. It’s going to be a rough day.

Wait a month. Those lines will be gone as people realize how shallow the game is and bail for another– been the MMO cycle for -years- now.

Haven’t been excited about a MMORPG launch like this since Wild Star.

Just excited to dive into something new and fresh, i haven’t touched WoW since January and i have no interest in coming back unless 10.0 is game changing. I have been playing a heck of a lot of GW2 which has been a fantastic time but the lack of “loot” kills it for me but the game is still a ton of fun.

Im just ready for something new! See you guys in Aeternum!

That’s how we’re feeling too. I only dabbled in the beta long enough to be sure I liked it and wanted to commit some time to it. Had a fun time and am looking forward to that shiny new AAA MMO feeling.

Figuring out how stuff works is also part of the fun so will be avoiding guides and spoilers until I’m getting into the weeds with it.

Really? took me a few minutes. Might be your router, do a speed check and then reset it.

Ah there it goes… Apparently my Wifi-Connection has been acting up… a LAN-Cable fixed it…
Thanks for the help :-)
