New World To Go

We also have another New World To Go episode and this week BDLG and Redbyrd are taking a look at Amazon's Lumberyard engine.

New World Alpha Key Giveaway on Twitter

The New World team has announced their alpha key giveaway in a series of tweets, and the German Twitter account has already started their first contest (with the English account following suit later today). If you want to participate, follow them on Twitter and reply to this tweet with the "#NewWorldAlphaDE" hash tag. Winners will be contacted through Twitter DM on Friday.

The French Twitter account has also started their own giveaway and you can enter it by following them and replying to this tweet with the hash tag "#NewWorldAlphaFR".

Update: The official English account has now started their giveaway, too. Follow, like and comment on this tweet with "#giveaway" and "#NewWorldWednesday".

There will be a new giveaway every Wednesday from now on - and at the same time they are still sending out keys to fans who signed up through the website or pre-ordered the game.

Keep an eye on our dev tracker or join us on Discord for notifications!

Dev Diary Incoming

We're also getting a new dev diary at the end of the month, according to this post by Legion on Reddit, although the topic has not been revealed yet.

Discord Bot & Website Updates

After the recent announcement of New World's delay, the official Twitter account has gone into a frenzy answering questions about the delay, the new beta date and how to get into alpha. They've even started giving away alpha keys on Twitter - so if you're looking for one of those, make sure to follow them.

Discord Bot Improvements

If you are running our Discord Bot you may have found the notifications for these Twitter replies a bit spammy, so now you can filter them out! "!NewWorldBot twitter_replies" will let Discord admins enable or disable them, so you can choose if you want to see everything or only important updates. This setting does not affect Reddit or website news.

There are also two new settings to toggle tracking Twitter and Reddit, so you can filter those sources out completely: "!NewWorldBot twitter" and "!NewWorldBot reddit".

Because the bot can run in multiple channels, this allows you to set up one channel with only the important news and one channel with every single dev reply. 

By the way, the bot is now being used on over 270 servers, far exceeding expectations at this stage! Thanks a lot for giving it a try and please reach out if you have any ideas for improvements.

Company Index Overhaul

This was actually completed some time ago but we haven't really announced it yet: If you are the creator of a company listing on our website you can now choose to promote your company on the front page and through better placement in the search results. This is a paid feature! The reasoning behind this can be found on our brand new Patreon page. Please make sure to read this before deciding to request this feature so you know how it works.

We've also added factions as an option for your company, overhauled the look of the company index and streamlined the creation process a little bit. If you want to update your listing you can do so by logging in on the account that created it. 

Please contact Takyn#0001 on Discord if you need help with either of these features.

New World Release Delayed

The New World team just announced their decision to delay New World - both beta and release - to later this summer.

The beta will start in July, the new release date is August 25th 2020.

Read the details on the official website, including a video message from Game Director Scot Lane.
