New World is a massively multiplayer, free to play open-ended sci-fi sandbox game that allows you to carve your own destiny with other players in a living, hostile, cursed land. Choose how you play, what you do, and whom you work with or against in an evolving world that transforms with the seasons, weather, and time of day. Band together to reclaim monster-haunted wilds and build thriving civilizations, or strike out on your own, surviving in the face of supernatural terrors and murderous player bandits. Focused on emergent gameplay and rich social features – including deep Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events, achievements, and rewards – your only limit in the New World is your ambition.
NOTE: New World has been abandoned.
New World Key Features
True Sandbox – How you play, what you do, and whom you work with or against is up to you. Will you try to help civilization take root and thrive, or will you take what you can, when you can?
Solo Or Together, Play Your Way – Live on your own amidst the supernatural terrors or join with others to build thriving civilizations. There is strength in numbers, but that also means sharing your spoils.
Living World – In this evolving world that transforms with the changing of the seasons, weather, and time of day, the only limit is your own ambition. What will you create – or destroy?
