Pre-orders, or “pre-purchases”, of the game grant access to the current closed beta that ends in August.
Amazon seeks to explore new frontiers this summer. And we are not referring to the attempts of its founder to enter space with a rocket taken from Austin Powers, but to the proposal with which Amazon Games seeks to turn around several years of unsuccessful projects. New World is the new PC MMO hitting stores in August and its closed beta seems to have been a hit with gamers: in addition to its large numbers of concurrent users, New World has been the best-selling game of the week on Steam.
And is that the reserve of the game on Steam grants direct access to private beta, no need to wait for an invite, which has propelled New World to the top of the games list best sellers on Steam. As Niko Partners’ analyst Daniel Ahmad shares, Amazon’s MMO ranks both as the # 1 and # 2 best-selling products on Steam, for the week of July 19-25.
Obviously, they are about the standard edition and the deluxe edition from New World, respectively. Third is Rimworld’s latest DLC, followed by F1 2021 and the Valve Index VR headset. While that list corresponds to last week’s sales, New World continues strong facing the one we start today. If you head over to Valve’s updated list, you’ll see that the MMO continues to be at the top and with no signs of slowing down.
After a problematic development and some other delay, New World will be available next August 31 on PC. The game, as we mentioned before, has reached over 200,000 simultaneous players during its closed beta, which shows the success of the test. Although it has also had to face some problems, with users claiming that the beta of the game would have fried their RTX 3090 cards, something that Amazon clarified and resolved in a short time.
