“New World feels somewhat anomalous. It’s a new MMO, but not a wildly ambitious Kickstarter project, not a survival game, not free-to-play, and it does not take place in space. It feels like a game that could’ve released alongside Guild Wars 2 in 2012—but it’s brand new and it’s releasing here in 2020. It’s also Amazon’s first big PC game release, so expectations are high.”
A few things help New World stand apart from other fantasy MMOs: It takes place on Earth and the player characters are all human; swords, bows, and guns seem to be more common than magic; and the active combat requires aiming and timing, dodge rolls and blocks—it’s not stand-and-whack-each-other combat, as some of the best MMOs feature.
There’s also a territory capture system that pits player companies against each other. It isn’t as wild as EVE Online’s unregulated corporate warfare, but brings some of that flavor into the world, and the 50v50 siege battles could be fun. If PvP and politics aren’t your thing, though, you can just explore and fight the world’s many monsters—New World doesn’t totally ditch MMO conventions.
- 50v50 War Mode.
- PvP territory control element to New World.
- New World’s island setting is divided into territories.
- At level 20, you can buy a house in a settlement, and it’ll act as a respawn or fast travel location.
- New World’s combat requires more than just tactical skill—your attacks have to connect with hit boxes, and there’s dodge and block timing to master—you level up like in a typical MMO.
