Amazon Games Studios has released the first screenshots for its upcoming MMORPG, New World. New World will be powered by the Lumberyard Engine and these screenshots showcase some of its environments.
As we’ve already stated, the Lumberyard Engine originates from CRYENGINE, so we are not really surprised by the visuals we are witnessing here. Unfortunately, though, Amazon Games Studios has not released any high-resolution versions of these screenshots (and as a result of that we can’t really appreciate the visuals).
According to the game’s description, in New World, players will decide how to play, what to do, and whom to work with-or against-in an evolving world that transforms with seasons, weather, and time of day.
The game promises to feature emergent gameplay and rich social features, including deep Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events, achievements, and rewards.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
