In New world, players are shipwrecked on Aeternum, where the basic laws of life and death are shattered. New world offers players endless opportunities to fight, feed, and forge as they explore and conquer the island and uncover its dark mysteries. Players can band together into factions to compete for control of the map in massive player-versus-player battles, or venture out solo (or in small groups) to explore Aeternum and learn its secrets.
“Over a million players have already set foot on Aeternum during our beta testing, and today we are delighted to welcome even more adventurers to the New world“said Christoph Hartmann, vice president of Amazon Games.”New worldThe epic battles, skill-based combat, beautiful setting, along with in-depth crafting and progression make this a game you can really get lost in. And because Aeternum is a living world, created to change and evolve over time, today is just the beginning – we have so much more in store for players.
New world features real-time, skill-based, visceral action combat – every swing, dodge, and block counts. Aeternum is teeming with miserable creatures, twisted by centuries of death and rebirth, and players must hone their weapons and combat skills if they hope to survive. New world offers a wide variety of multiplayer combat experiences, including:
- War: Epic full-scale siege warfare, with up to 100 players on the battlefield at a time. The outcome of each war determines which company of players controls the contested territories or colonies, and the resources they contain.
- Rush outpost: Teams of 20 players from two competing factions battle for control of fortifications and resources in this maximum-level instantiated game mode that combines player-against-environment and player-against-player.
- Expeditions: Five-player instanced dungeons that take players to the most remote and deepest corners of Aeternum, where they will face deadly enemies and uncover truths about the island.
- Invasion: The twisted armies of Aeternum gather their forces to attack player-controlled territories, and groups of 50 players assemble to fight waves of monsters.
New worldClassless progression gives players the freedom to develop their characters in unique ways, choosing the weapons (blade, powder, or magic) that best suit their playstyle. Deep crafting system and player box Customizable offer even more ways for players to carve out a place in the world.
