Very interesting; similar to crowfall in a lot of ways.

Some of features:

  • Crafting, harvesting.
  • Classless system
  • Aim based/Skill based combat.
  • Supposedly they're going to have 10k players per world.
  • Open FFA PvP with a UO similar crime system. Bounty hunting.
  • Fortification Building.
  • Sieges and territorial / resource control.

I'm very interested in this game also. Already signed up for the alpha. 

I was amazed that a AAA studio with AAA budget would do a PVP game with a full loot ruleset.

It sounds to me more like a larger scale survival game than a MMORPG but it's very interesting none the less.

Just got my invite last night, have played for 8 hours or so thus far. Looks and feels good, though some of the content is not very accessible solo or without information that's hard to get with the NDA. Waiting for my forums access, hopefully that will fill in the blanks.

Anyone else here playing? Could use a SB/CF based Company, show people what's what. :P

Strangely enough, Pornhub of all places has leaked video of their gameplay already.

I got in Wednesday. What server is everyone on? I started on server#2. I can see that LoD already has some land claimed on that server. I’m looking to join up with a few people. I’m just really getting back into gaming after a long break.

I was invited too Anthrage - downloading New World. :) I`m Mythx in the game. I`ve not read anything about the game so I`m completely new, hehe. I just love survival type of games, and Amazon is AAA studio with AAA budget.

I missed the sign up :(

They will invite more players for sure when they are closer to closed beta @Angelmar and I really recommend the game and try it out, because so far from official tweets it looks simply amazing.

Without gettings into details (NDA), I can see it is quite good. Had my first death (first PvP as well) so far, 15 or so hours in - reminded me of UO-launch days. Combat feels very good.

I saw that LoD has a Claim on Server 2, good stuff. I'm on server one atm, grinding out levels and climbing the skill ladder. I like the way they have things set up, enjoying it so far.

If enough people who don't already have a guild (Company) there from this community are interested, we could try to set something up. Otherwise if you're in an need assistance with anything on Server 1, send me a message, I'm Anthrage Stormrider there.

I think it's probably due to my lack of experience with "survival games" as a genre overall, but the beginning experience of New World reminds me of Crowfall so much it's eery. I'm eager to see in what capacity and scope their visions diverge.

HAH. the new player experience in crowfall currently is bad. Without breaking NDA, I can say new world is much better designed to grab players and retain them. Hence why many here are playing there :)

Considering how much "I don't know wtf to do D:" I've seen in the NW global chat I'm pretty confident in my assessment of their relatively confusing introductions. :lol:

Crowfall does seem to come out ahead in what I'd describe as vision and implementation. The small group content (outposts and forts) and the "ending of the world to stave off staleness" are both legs up on CF's competition. Having had access to another In Development project has given me more confidence in Crowfall's future.

I agree. I love the concept of crowfall but in regards to actually getting it done before Q4 2019, that I am unsure of.

Just an FYI to anyone with New World access. Check their forums for an announcement, something is happening you don't want to miss - not sure if posted the details here would violate the NDA so not going to say what exactly but yeah.
