New World is an upcoming MMORPG PC game from Amazon Games and you can play it right now. Today marks the launch of the game's closed beta. This beta will run from now through to August 2, giving players a chance to experience a little bit of the game ahead of the August 31 launch.

How do you get into the beta? It's simple: You simply need to pre-order the game from either Amazon or through Steam. You can get in starting at $39.99 for the Standard Edition or $49.99 for the Deluxe Edition. New World will not have any monthly subscription fees. If you don't want to put down any money, you can register for a chance to join the beta, but entry is not guaranteed.

New World is an open world massively multiplayer online role-playing game that pits players against the haunted wilderness of Aeternum, a mysterious island in the twilight of the Age of Exploration. Success in New World ultimately depends on the player’s ability to conquer not only rival players, but Aeternum itself, as it unleashes undead legions hell-bent on purging players from its shores. Massive siege battles, daring expeditions, thrilling supernatural invasions, and a stunning and diverse natural setting set New World apart.

Closed beta players will be ushered into the world of Aeternum, a vast, magical island that has drawn explorers from around the globe. New World features robust PvE and PvP content including:
  • Expeditions: Five-player instanced dungeons that take players into the farthest corners and deepest depths of Aeternum, where they’ll face deadly foes and uncover truths about the island.
  • War: Epic siege warfare on a massive scale, with up to 100 players on the battlefield at once. The outcome of each war determines which company controls contested territory or settlements—and the resources they contain.
  • Outpost Rush: Teams of 20 players from two competing factions fight for control of fortifications and resources in this max-level instanced game mode that combines PvE and PvP play.
  • Invasions: Twisted armies of Aeternum muster their forces to assault player-controlled territory, and groups of 50 max-level players rally together to fight off waves of monsters.
New World’s combat is skill-based and visceral. Positioning, timing, and aim all matter, whether players are taking on rival players or the world itself. Classless progression, with combat style defined by weapon choice, and deep crafting systems let everyone explore New World in their own way—from becoming the best blacksmith on the server to making a name as a fierce warrior.
