Amazon has offered an early look at its upcoming video game "New World," one of three PC games the company announced in 2016.
"New World" is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, in the style of "EVE Online" and "World of Warcraft."
Players will slowly work together to colonize an uncharted island, clearing out dangerous beasts and monsters, and gradually building homes and cities.
Amazon Games Studios is working on a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game called "New World," the largest project yet from the online retailer's largely unknown game development team.
Amazon Games Studios was established in 2012, but so far its releases have largely been limited to smartphones and Amazon devices. "New World" was one of three PC games announced by Amazon Game Studios in 2016, along with "Crucible," a "Fortnite"-style battle royale game, and "Breakaway," an online battle arena game that has since been cancelled.AdvertisementHere's everything we know about "New World," Amazon's first major video game:
Players will create their own characters and work together to colonize the island of "New World."
Clearing out beasts and monsters will be the first step to starting a colony.
Players can wage war in "New World," but factions will have 24 hours in real life to prepare.
