Amazon’s New World gets an Open Beta announcement for September at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live.
New World Gets Open Beta in September
The New World Open Beta will be taking place from September 9th to September 12th according to the announcement at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live. The release date for September 28th is still going ahead despite previous delays for the MMO. Players will be able to request access at the beginning on September 8th at 7 AM PT.
Open Beta will begin on September 9 at 7:00AM PT (2:00PM UTC) and continue until September 12 at 11:59PM PT (6:59AM UTC)
The public beta will allow players to check out New World before the release of the game at the end of next month and a chance for the developer to stress test the servers with no doubt a huge influx of players this time around. In addition to the news about the beta, Amazon Games revealed a new trailer featuring the supernatural world of New World. The developer has already warned on the Open Beta FAQ page that there may be some queue times during the beta test. Again the progress made in Open Beta will not carry over to the full game, so while ultimately what happens in beta, stays in beta, it’s a good chance to experiment with some builds and features of the game before launch.
Previously Amazon unveiled a new video series that will cover the NPC families players will meet in-game, starting off with tales of the ‘Angry Earth’.
This month New World held betas which was available for those who pre-ordered the game. If you want to know what we thought of the New World you can check out our New World Preview: Closed Beta Impressions.
New World is available for pre-order starting at $39.99 on PC.
