Amazon's new MMORPG New World is finally ready to set land on the shores of gamers everywhere, promising an open-world adventure like no other. Announced back in 2016, New World has been a long time coming, and players won't have to wait long to explore the dark and twisted underbelly of Aeternum island. Whether you've tried one of the beta tests or are new to MMORPGs, New World has the potential to be one of best multiplayer games on the PC. Here's everything we know about New World.
Release Date & Time of New World Closed Beta
The New World closed beta release date and time is July 20th at 9:30AM PT (4:30PM UTC), and it will end on August 2nd at 11:59M PT (6:59AM UTC). So, that’s about a solid two weeks in which you’ll be able to experience everything there is to do in the beta. Before it begins, though, you can expect to get a message from Scot Lane, the game’s director, at 9:00AM PT (4:00PM UTC), in which you’ll learn more about the changes and updates and just generally the content you can expect to see.
Two things to point out here. The first one is that you can do whatever you want during the closed beta; the developers will be wiping everything before official launch on August 31st. No progress will carry over. The second thing to know is that the beta servers will be available in North America, Europe, Australia and Brazil. Now, you might be wondering how to get in on the action, which brings me to our next point.
How To Get New World Closed Beta
There are a couple of ways to get into the New World Closed Beta. The guaranteed way to gain access to the New World Closed Beta test is to preorder the game. It doesn’t necessarily matter where you preorder the game, so long as the beta invite gets sent to your email address or Amazon account, depending on how you signed up.
If you would rather leave it to fate, you can sign up for the closed beta by heading over to the testers’ page on Amazon’s website. There is no guarantee you will get a key since Amazon haven’t revealed how many beta keys will be available.
What is the New World Closed Beta Start Time?
Amazon has confirmed that the New World Closed Beta Start Time has been scheduled for 5:30pm BST on Tuesday, July 20.
In North America, the New World Closed Beta begins July 20 at 9:30AM PT (4:30PM UTC).
It should be noted that there will be a gap between the full game being released and the playable closed beta going live this week.
Amazon has confirmed that the New World Closed Beta will continue until August 2 at 11:59M PT (6:59AM UTC).
Servers for the game will be available in various locations, with Closed Beta server support confirmed for North America, Europe, Australia and Brazil.
The Closed Beta will support English voice-over and text in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish (Spain & LATAM), Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
However, it should be noted that while the New World beta will include a lot of new content to check out, Amazon is planning on wiping progress before New World’s official release on August 31, 2021.
That's all you need to know in order to reserve a spot in the beta and whether or not your system can run the game. This is your last chance to experience before the full New World release, so make sure you get in before the beta ends on August 2nd. You can find all of the latest Gaming News at store
