New World is now on sale for 50% off through Steam and Amazon until 10AM PST on November 8. We recently celebrated our first anniversary, and will continue to make the game even more accessible through frequent updates based on player feedback. Following the release of Brimstone Sands and Fresh Start Worlds, now is the best time to start your adventure in Aeternum. Here are some insights for you to get started, learn more about major updates and events, and see what’s next.
New Player Guide
We chatted with BDLG and Redbyrd, the creators of Newworldfans.com, to help new players make the most out of their experience. Unfamiliar with New World? No problem.
“Take it slow and don’t get overwhelmed,” BDLG said. ”You will learn as you go. It is 100% okay to not know anything when you start. That’s part of the fun. Enjoy the ride and the knowledge will come.“
Check out our full interview with BDLG and Redbyrd for more in-depth tips.
Fresh Start Worlds
Conquer untouched territory, amass vast wealth, and forge new reputations when Fresh Start Worlds come to Aeternum on November 2. All characters, coins, and loot must originate in these servers. That means no powerful or rich Adventurers can transfer into any of the new worlds. Join one as soon as they launch to enjoy a blank canvas with the rest of the community. What will you claim?
Revamped Starting Experience
The first 25 levels of the game were overhauled based on community feedback. Here’s what to expect:
Start the adventure with friends: Players spawn in one of several zones at the beginning of the game. Head to a friend’s location to play early quests together.
Multiple ways for solo and group players to progress: There are different objectives for certain quests that give you the option to remain solo or join a group of players depending on your preferred experience.
Diverse objectives to keep gameplay fresh: Objectives range from puzzle and traversal challenges to unique interactions with the world and dynamic events. There’s always something new to find.
An epic adventure surrounding the mysteries of Aeternum: Conquer new enemies, obstacles, and locations to reveal the truth about the eternal isle.
