As Twitch-friendly as its Ama­zon sta­ble­mates, but in a very dif­fer­ent way. New World is an open-world sand­box MMO set in colo­nial Amer­ica, where play­ers are tasked with sur­viv­ing in a hos­tile land haunted by su­per­nat­u­ral threats. It’s up to you whether you carve out a life alone in the wilder­ness, or if you em­brace civ­i­liza­tion and con­struct a set­tle­ment with your friends. The world will change with the time of day and with the sea­sons, adding an el­e­ment of re­al­ism to an oth­er­wise oth­er­worldly ex­pe­ri­ence. Ama­zon prom­ise to­tal free­dom to choose your own al­le­giances – it’s start­ing to sound a lit­tle like pop­u­lar in­die sur­vival games such as Ark: Sur­vival Evolved, but with big money be­hind it.
