Despite a new focus on PvE, Amazon's MMORPG New World is not a theme park MMORPG. But you can look forward to a very interesting housing system.
Amazon recently announced the focus of the MMORPG New World to move from PvP to PvE. However, you shouldn't expect a theme park game. In return, housing fans get something very special.
PvE but not a theme park
Do you expect from New World (buy now for € 39.99) epic, story-heavy quests now that the focus has shifted to PvE? That could lead to disappointments. Because there are quests, these will be more of a standard "Kill X Monster" and "Bring Me X Raw Materials" missions. There is a background story, but you can find this through books and records in the game world. You shouldn't expect big stories from the quests. Basically, New World is a sandbox MMORPG in which you write the story yourself through your actions in the game world.
For this, the developers place great value on a sophisticated housing system. In order to be able to build a house, you first have to build up your reputation with the faction that has the say in the settlement through battles and orders. It is also necessary to reach level 20. Now you choose your building site and create an instance of your house. Decorations bring you buffs and you can always teleport back to your own home. You will lose these bonuses if you do not pay your taxes. Basically, it is important to build the house and decorate it as chic as possible, because this way you will get as many buffs and bonuses as possible that are useful for your adventures.
Since you share a building site with other players, only the house is shown there by the player who has the highest reputation with the corresponding faction and who has decorated his house most beautifully. You can see how far away you are from a ranking list.
The MMORPG New World will be released on May 26, 2020 for PC.
