After the Amazon Game Studio had to postpone the release of New World again last month, alpha players can look forward to an extensive update for the MMORPG. Almost all areas of the title are changed in some way by the new version. Of course there are also some innovations for the role play.

With the title "Die Kaiserin von Eben Maß", the developers have placed a brand new area in New World with Ebonscale Reach. There you will also encounter previously unknown opponents – including the thugs, warriors, spear captains, summoners, maiden, tigers, corrupted tigers and the dynasty musketeers. The new area is located north of Königsfels and should only be visited by players from level 51. In addition, with the "Garden of Genesis" there is now also the first New World expedition. A total of five players will meet two bosses here – the guard and the rot gardener. For the successful completion of the expedition you will receive special equipment for your character in the MMORPG.

Another innovation is the outpost rush. This is the previously announced PvP mode, in which 20 players per team compete against each other. The creators have also revised the main storyline quests up to level 40 and introduced two more quest lines for the manufacture of rare weapons and armor. There have also been extensive changes to the inventory user interface. So players can now see their character in an overall view. You can find a picture of the inventory below.

Collecting experience points has also been changed a bit with the alpha update. You can find more detailed information on "The Empress von Eben Maß" in the Patch notes from Amazon Game Studios.
