First official gameplay footage released for Amazon’s upcoming MMORPG, New World

Amazon’s MMORPG, New World, is currently under closed alpha phase and the team has released the first official gameplay video from it. As said, this video features alpha gameplay footage, meaning that it may not reflect the quality of the final game.

Unfortunately this is a very short video. It’s only one minute and simply showcases some of the game’s environments. So yeah, apart from watching New World’s visuals, powered by the Lumberyard Engine, there is nothing more going on in this particular video.

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.
