New World is an open world massively multiplayer sandbox game developed by Amazon Game Studio and published by Amazon for PC. The game was originally to be released on August 25, 2020, but was pushed back to Spring 2021[1], and again to August 21, 2021[2].

Summary[edit | edit source]

New World pits players against the haunted wilderness of Aeternum, a mysterious island discovered during the twilight of the Age of Exploration.

New World allows you to carve your own destiny with other players in a living, hostile, cursed land. Overcome the brutal legions of The Corrupted and draw battle lines with competing players in this land of danger and opportunity.


  • How you play, what you do, and whom you work with or against is up to you.
  • Live on your own amidst the supernatural terrors or join with others to build thriving civilizations.
  • In this evolving world that transforms with the changing of the seasons, weather, and time of day, the only limit is your own ambition.
