Amazon Games just announced New World: Aeternum at the Summer Game Fest 2024. This game takes you on a mystical journey to the supernatural island of Aeternum, and it's coming out on October 15, 2024, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. This is the first time the game will be on consoles, and it's coming with a big update and crossplay.

Here's a quick rundown:

  • New World: Aeternum will be released on October 15, 2024, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
  • The update is called a spiritual successor to New World and includes cross-play, extensive PvP, a 10-player raid, and an improved leveling system focused on solo/co-op players.

Optimized for Consoles

The game has been specifically adapted for consoles while retaining all PC features and adding improved control options. It's designed to feel great with a controller, and the developers say it's worth trying New World with a controller on PC too.

Community-Driven Development Focuses on Solo Players

Amazon Games emphasizes player feedback, which directly influenced the development of New World: Aeternum to ensure a rich and satisfying experience.

New World Aeternum Solo Play
Even solo players can now experience the full story.

Even solo players can now experience the full story thanks to adjustments made based on community input, including removing group-required elements from dungeons. This allows solo players to experience the entire story without needing a group. Changes also include additional cutscenes and adjustments to the starting zone to provide a better introduction for new players.

Anyone who pre-orders New World: Aeternum on consoles or logs in on PC before the release on October 15 will receive a special reward: the Azoth Prowler mount.
