New World

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

New World’s engaging crafting and faction rivalries are both fun and accessible, but it suffers from a lifeless open-world and a tedious leveling system that doesn’t feel rewarding.

Game Info

Carve your own destiny in New World, a massively multiplayer, open-ended sandbox game set in a living, cursed land. Choose how you play, what you do, and whom you work with or against in an evolving world that transforms with the seasons, weather, and time of day. Band together to reclaim monster-haunted wilds and build thriving civilizations, or strike out on your own, surviving in the face of supernatural terrors and murderous player bandits. Focused on emergent gameplay and rich social features – including deep Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events, achievements, and rewards – your only limit in the New World is your ambition.

6/10

High-stakes PvP battles and top-notch production values bolster Amazon’s MMORPG, even if its PvE content and occasionally frustrating systems may leave some players wanting.

New World is a very pretty survival-MMORPG hybrid that saves its best moments for the endgame – but you have to be willing to grind like hell to get to them.

8.5/10

New World is a pretty damn good MMORPG. It’s fun and accessible, and though it doesn’t do anything truly new, it has enough little twists on existing ideas to keep me invested.
