But let’s talk about the plot of this multiplayer adventure and the way it is played.
New World is in fact set on a fictional island in the Atlantic Ocean, called Aeternum Island, in which we players will be shipwrecked and consequently begin our adventure. At its base, the game is therefore nothing more than an open world full of activities to be carried out, from fighting to the crafting of resources useful for exploration. Exploring in fact will be fundamental for the growth in our character, which we can develop in various ways.
The central core of the New World narrative, however, is to be found in the three factions to which we can join, that is the Marauders, the Syndicate and the Brothers. Once we become part of one of these factions we will be able to wage wars to claim, defend and develop our territory, fundamental mechanics to unlock the most precious resources the island has to offer.
In short, a real war of conquest, which among other things is well suited to the aesthetics of the title, which refers to the imagination of Spanish colonization of the Americas.
Fights and gameplay

However, it should be noted that the title does not offer any targeting or lock on systems on the enemyso to hit our shots we will need good aim and a particularly steady hand.
The game world will also dynamically adapt to the player’s actions and level by proposing an always balanced challenge even for players who have reached the highest levels. Enemies will also adopt more complex patterns over time, which will force the player to counter them using timed attacks, dodges, weapon locks, retreats or stealth.

For Amazon it will be a success
A few hours after the official launch he intervened Christoph Harmannvice president of Amazon Games, who explained that, in his opinion, New World will be a huge success, even in the face of the support that the company of Jeff Bezos has provided to the entire project.
“I think New World is something unexpected for a lot of people because I think they just assumed it was never going to come out for real. I see a lot of enthusiasm for the company’s games, a lot of support, and it’s increasing over time rather than decreasing – says Hartmann – I haven’t seen any signs that Amazon is getting tired of its gaming division, I just see a lot of support. And when we get great success, and I believe New World will be, we will get even more support from the company. “
We just have to wait to try New World firsthand to see if the vice president’s promises will be kept. We remind you that for the moment the game is only available on PC.
