@vandarsin PvP and War are still important aspects of New World. World PvP will still be a part of the game as well, but PvP will take place between prepared, willing, and able combatants. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
@Bannedrj The only way to get guaranteed access to the Closed Beta is by Pre-ordering the game. During Closed Beta, folks will be streaming and creating YouTube content, so you will have a strong sense of the gameplay experience. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
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.[source]
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.[source]
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.[source]
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.[source]
@Tindybell The tech can support many players but it will ultimately always come down to what is right for the game. Testing is what gives us that answer. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
@YamilnahuelCano It will cover some of the enemies you'll experience on Aeternum, yes. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
@TheBDLG I couldn't resist the pun but no, this particular Dev Diary won't cover crafting. In February, we will be digging deeper into Settlements, governance, player housing, Factions, and more. You can craft in Settlements too so I guess it tangentially works? [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
@nektipap @Atraaxx Pre-ordering the game grants you access to the Closed Beta in April. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
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.[source]
@Nairik25 @Atraaxx We do not have plans to support controllers at launch. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
@MrAnubyx The dev blog covered the PvP news we wanted to talk about this month. There will be a good amount more on that topic before the Closed Beta. This Dev Diary will touch on other topics. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
@MrAnubyx @PlaynewworldFR @PlaynewworldDE We're polishing up the next Developer Diary (video). That will be the next piece of content you'll see from us. [source]— New World (@playnewworld) December 7, 2019
