Aeternum offers the players lush forests, long beaches, mountainous areas and a rich flora and fauna to explore. Settlements are a place to meet other players, to use the Crafting Stations and to follow the various Quests.
Aeternum is a haunted wilderness overran by The Corrupted, a mysterious island that was discovered during the twilight of the Age of Exploration. Called the "Eternal Isle" by some.
- The "New World Steelbook Edition" also contains a physical map of Aeternum. Please note: the Steelbook is also available separately with the map, but without a game.
