Amazon New World: The game is expected to surpass many MMO

  • The open beta for Amazon Games' upcoming MMORPG New World come into being yesterday and it's already seen a wave of players delving in. Stats sites SteamDB and SteamCharts both record that New World has already seen overflow 140,000 concurrent players head to the mysterious land of Aeternum, and it is not even the weekend yet.

    The New World beta launched yesterday and runs until September 12, so we're only getting an early sense of interest within the upcoming PC game prior to the weekend, when we'll very likely see even more players keen to check the waters dive in. But, so far, we've already seen peak player New World Coins counts of around 141.5k on Valve's platform, in keeping with those sites' figures.

    That's pretty darn eye-watering, and puts the New World open beta within the number five slot on today's most-played on Steam (going by peak player count) behind regulars CS:GO, Dota 2, PUBG, and Apex Legends, but prior other favourites like Destiny 2, larceny Auto V/Online, and newcomer Naraka: Bladepoint.

    So far that figure falls in need of the height the New World closed beta set some months back of around 200k concurrent players, but with the newest playtest now hospitable all and Buy New World Coins also the weekend ahead, it's looking perfectly possible we'll see that previous record knocked out of the park.

    The New World release date is about for September 28. If you're keen for brush up for the open beta or before the massive day, make sure to test out our New World beginner's guide and best New World factions, best New World weapons, and New World levelling guides at those links for a few handy pointers.

    It is worth noting that if you want to spend time making money in the game, the situation may not be as simple as you think. If you are not a professional player, the process of earning coins will cost you a lot of time and energy. In contrast, buying New World Coins in Newworldcoins is much more cost-effective and allows you to have more time to enjoy the game.
