Aeternum Awaits

Sign up for an opportunity to play New World early.


How do I get into the Alpha?

We are sending weekly invites to people who signed up for testing on our website.  

I'm currently playing in the Alpha; will I be able to continue playing during the Closed Beta?

We will be providing more information on the Closed Beta at a later date.

Will my Alpha progress be carried over to the Closed Beta?

After the many improvements and changes we made to New World between Closed Alpha and Beta, we will not be carrying over player progression. It's time to start fresh and experience all the changes for yourself!

How can I get into the Closed Beta?

You can sign up for the opportunity to get into Closed Beta from this page OR you can pre-order the game to secure access.

Can I stream the Closed Beta?

Yes, Closed Beta will not be under NDA and you will be welcomed to stream and create New World content.

When will the Closed Beta start?

Closed Beta will begin on July 20, 2021.

Will my Beta progress be carried over to Release?

No, we will be wiping progress before New World's official release on August 31, 2021.

How will you be selecting and inviting people who signed up for Closed Beta but did not pre-order?

Once Closed Beta begins, we will be randomly selecting participants from our list of Closed Beta sign-ups and sending invitations at regular intervals via email while the Closed Beta test is live.

How long will the Closed Beta test be live?

We will be announcing the start and end dates for the Closed Beta at a later date.
