Join 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.
Closed Beta marks the first point where you can feel free to stream and create content using New World.
Closed Beta is currently scheduled to start in April 2020.
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!
No, we will be wiping progress before New World's official release in May 2020.
Invitations to the current New World Alpha are selected at random from the lists of previous Alpha signups, and current Closed Beta signups on newworld.com. If you pre-ordered New World and would like to be included in the random selection for Alpha, please also sign up for the Closed Beta on newworld.com.
