Amazon delays New World game AGAIN – 2021 release date and gameplay revealed

New World is an upcoming MMORPG from Amazon Games and has had its fair share of development troubles — not all that unusual for an Amazon Games title. It was first delayed to August 2020 and delayed again to 2021; now, it's being delayed for a third time until August 2021.Here's everything we know about New World:

When does New World release?

As of 16th February, Amazon Games is planning New World to fully release on 21 August 2021. The latest developer update provided this information along with details about other aspects of the game the devs are planning to add.

Before that happens, there are also some dates for fans to keep an eye out for. The first date is the current alpha that is going on for select players. If you’ve previously signed up for the alpha, you might receive a Steam key to download the game. Currently, there are only North America servers but come 30th March, EU servers will be enabled.

After the alpha, there will be a closed beta for those who have pre-ordered New World on 20th July 2021. The closed beta will introduce several new features to the game, including the Ebonscale Reach end-game area, five-player Expeditions and 20v20 battles called Outpost Rush.


You can expect team-based player-versus-player combat from New World, in addition to plenty of exploration and resource management. You begin the game as a level one player and must slowly work your way up and improve your character by gaining experience.

New World will also feature a 50v50 war mode to allow for epic battles. Amazon has taken precautions to ensure that as many players as possible can share a single world together and have assured gamers that their servers will accommodate over 1000 players at a time.

You will have the opportunity to join one of three factions and engage in PvP battles against other battles. Doing so will grant you experience and allow you to level up your character. Conversely, losing will incur penalties upon you including decreased weapon durability.

The three factions are: The Marauders, The Syndicate and The Covenant. The Marauders operate with a “might makes right” philosophy, while The Syndicate are a secretive force focused on the pursuit of forbidden knowledge. Lastly, The Covenant fights with righteousness and justice for the souls of all living beings.

For those with bigger dreams, you can also join Companies, which are groups of up to 50 players that are able to control territory. There are benefits to controlling territory, such as the ability to set tax rates. Of course, nothing good comes easy, and territory will have to be defended against opposing Companies.

New World also offers Expeditions which are five-player instanced dungeons to explore. In addition to posing deadly challenges, they also reveal more about the secrets of Aeternum Island. Exploring these dungeons are worth your effort, as they grant you the opportunity to find new gear and special loot.
