As Preview comes to an end, we are in awe of the support, encouragement, and excitement you have shown for New World. We went into Preview, eager and nervous to share our development progress and invite all of you, who have supported us on this journey, to experience Aeternum firsthand. We were humbled by the response that the Preview received!
We didn’t expect so many content creators to get behind us and drive New World to the top on Twitch during the first few days of the Preview. We were also blown away by the levels of support shown on social media and all the awesome content we have seen across all channels. The high volume and quality of feedback we have received from dedicated and thoughtful players has inspired and motivated us to work even harder for you to make New World as good as it can be.
There are great things ahead for New World and our team...and for you! We will continue development, now armed with a vast amount of feedback, suggestions, and data. We plan to focus on adding more mid and end game content but also features that are just fun. In particular, we are working toward adding more in the areas of game modes, land mass, AI variety, additional weapon types, quest variety, and more. We are excited to share our vision for New World with you, and will continue pushing in this direction until we feel we have the right amount of content and polish for the great launch our players deserve.
Looking ahead, we will be launching our next phase of testing in November. This will be your chance to continue helping us test and develop New World. We will work very hard to keep everyone informed on our progress and improvements we make as we head towards launch. Stay tuned to NewWorld.com and @PlayNewWorld on social media for a detailed announcement on how to sign up to participate in future tests. Please continue to post you experiences and content from the Preview using #NewWorldPreview on our social channels and if you would like to partner with us, Creator Program applications will be ongoing so be sure to sign up here!
We had an absolute blast during the Preview and may have stayed up a little too late a few days this week watching all of the amazing Twitch streams. We’ve picked a few of our favorites to share with you below. Enjoy.
We sincerely want to thank everyone for your support. It will definitely make New World a much better game.
See you in Aeternum again soon,
The New World Team
