New World: First Impressions

So, I was able to get into this New World preview. I didn’t get in until 3 days to the end so I didn’t get to progress very far, however, I made it to level 17, got into factions, did some questing, some exploring, and some crafting. For context, getting to level 17 took 5.5 hours. This probably wasnt the most efficient 5.5 hours of my gaming time, but getting to max level will probably take a significant time investment. In this post, I’ll throw out my thoughts on the look and feel of the game, the combat, crafting, my overall thoughts and a review of the interview their developer did with Richwcampbell and Asmongold. Also, at the end, there’ll be a little story regarding Amazon’s customer service for their gaming division. Make sure to subscribe to the blog to get future updates for the game, including details about their November beta test and a bunch of already-created game resources.

Games I’m Looking Forward To

*Under Construction* – I’ll try to get back here pretty soon to add some more information about the games and why I’m really wanting to play them.

These games are either not yet released and are upcoming, or are upcoming to me as I haven’t played them yet.

Ashes of Creation – MMORPG. Not into it’s beta testing yet, so this will be a ways away.

New World – MMORPG developed by Amazon. Scheduled, I believe, for the first half of 2021.

Cyberpunk 2077 – Maybe one of the most anticipated upcoming games. 11-19-2020. So close.

Diablo 4 – Upcoming ARPG sequel. NO release date.

Crimson Desert – Made by the some company as Black Desert Online. No release date.

Elyon (Ascent Infinite Realm) – Fantasy/steampunk MMORPG. 12/2020 release date for Korea, then NA to follow shortly.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – Interesting seeming addition to the franchise. Maybe less stealth and more action, along with a city building element. 11-17-2020

Black Myth: Wukong – Just watched the 13 minute game play trailer for this and wow… it looks gorgeous. Apparently hailed as a Chinese-developed Dark Souls.
