New World Launches

Amazon Game Studios is now offering the chance to discover the New World, with the launch of New World, an ambitious MMORPG for Windows. This can be purchased and played on Steam, but naturally enough, you can pick up a copy on Amazon as well. Jokingly calling the game a "queue simulator," a tweet from SteamDB notes it is already putting up some impressive numbers: "Queue simulator New World beats Valheim's concurrent players peak and takes the 5th spot of all-time records with over 500,000 players." Here's the game's most recent Video Developer Diary, and here are some details:
Explore a thrilling, open-world MMO filled with danger and opportunity where you'll forge a new destiny for yourself as an adventurer shipwrecked on the supernatural island of Aeternum. Endless opportunities to fight, forage, and forge await you among the island's wilderness and ruins. Channel supernatural forces or wield deadly weapons in a classless, real-time combat system, and fight alone, with a small team, or in massed armies for PvE and PvP battles—the choices are all yours.
