So where is the dev blog?

LegionCM

Thank you for all of your hard work New World Team! I am very excited to see what is going to be revealed in the next few dev diaries. Is there anything in terms of art direction such as the landscapes and terrain that will be explored or briefly talked about in any fashion? I am curious on the ideas behind such an interesting world.

I think we have saturated the community with enough beautiful scenic images. We're now getting into the nitty gritty. Along with that will come more of the world of course but we think we've covered a lot of the look of the game.

What is the main theme of the nearest Dev Diary?

Its going to showcase three of the main enemy groups you'll encounter on Aeternum. The Lost, Angry Earth, and The Ancients. It will then go into a little on some of the Corrupted Breaches. Dev Diary 3 will focus almost exclusively on Combat. To supplement the Dev Diary video series we'll have deep dive Dev Blogs and articles on other systems. I'm currently in the process of writing up the Settlements, Forts, and Governance article right now actually.

Amazon Purchase...Where to Download ?

LegionCM

I'm planning to pre-purchase via Amazon..not Steam. Does any know exactly where you will actually download the game. My guess is a code you apply to Steam account(sent by amazon). Can any clarify ?

You will receive a game code from Amazon that you redeem in Steam.

Delayed or... do i have to opt in somewhere to read it?

We're aiming to get the next Dev Diary (video) this week. We're also working on a Dev Blog detailing how Settlements work in NW. As we progress towards Closed Beta in April you can expect to see a lot more information about the systems in NW coming from our official channels.

Question about forts and houusing

LegionCM

I've seen that companies will be able to capture and hold forts but will they be able to modify them? Build more walls, defenses, etc? Or will the forts all be the same template across all servers?

I think I read somewhere about a builder class. It could be intriguing but what exactly is there to build in the game?

We are going to deep dive into Settlements, governance, player housing, Factions, and more during the month of February.
