If you’re a fan of MMORPG games but fell out of love with old-timers such as World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV or The Elder Scrolls Online, you might be wondering when is the next big thing coming your way. Well, that could happen really soon as Amazon’s attempt to break the gaming market is set to debut next month. New World, an MMORPG game by Amazon Game Studios is set to be released on May 26th.

If you’ve never heard about this game before you should know that it was in development for a few years now and changed completely from what has been announced back in 2018. New World is set in the mid-1600s, where players are tasked with colonizing a fictional land modeled after British America in the Atlantic Ocean. According to the developers, the game should give players a chance to experience an interesting mix between competitive and co-op gameplay.

If this looks like something you’d wish to try, you should know that prior to the official release, Amazon Game Studios are planning to host a closed beta test. The test should begin in just a few weeks and will grant access to everyone who pre-purchased the game. If you’re not willing to spend money right away you might try your luck and register for the beta on the game’s website.
