Looks like they're honoring the free-to-play pricing for existing pre-orders.

If you believe you were a part of the group who pre-ordered the game during the small window when it was available for free and have not received an e-mail about it yet, please reach out to our support team: amazongamestudios-support@amazon.com

Just to be clear, this is for a very specific use case. Playing in the Alpha does not grant you a free copy of the game at launch.

Developer Diary: Welcome to New World

LegionCM

Hoorah for information! The environments are nice and lush looking. I'm loving that white tree and it's fog effects.

We'll have one video Dev Diary per month leading up to May. There will also be supplemental information interspersed in there as well. We've only just begun to pull back the curtain. You'll have a really good understanding of the game and all of it's systems before it's time to jump into Closed Beta in April.
