New World Hardware Requirements Revealed

Amazon Game Studios shared the official hardware requirements of the ambitious MMORPG New World, which is set in 17th-century America. The studio also confirmed the game's release date and shared new screenshots.

Amazon Game Studios has released new screens and hardware requirements for the upcoming ambitious MMORPG titled New World. The devs also confirmed that the game will launch next year. Unlike many other MMOs trying to reach as many people as possible, the title will require us to have quite a strong hardware by genre standards. Fortunately, the players interested in the title can see with their own eyes whether it will be worth investing in the game, mainly due to the new screenshots that have just been published, as well as a gameplay footage from a few months ago.

Minimum hardware requirements

  1. OS: Windows 8 or 10 (64-bit versions)
  2. CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD 3Ghz quad-core processor

The game will launch only on PCs for the time being.

Work on New World has been going on for several years. The action of the game will be set in 17th-century America, but the historical setting will be enriched with numerous fantastic elements. The game is designed as a sandbox. The devs promise full freedom of career choice, and most events in the virtual world will be driven by the actions of the players themselves. During the game we will be able to fight against monsters controlled by artificial intelligence, as well as other participants of the game.

Let us remind that New World is not the only game from the Amazon. In 2016, the American giant announced a total of three titles - Breakaway, Crucible and New World. Unfortunately, the first of these projects was abandoned after less than two years of wdevelopment, and Crucible has went off the radar for the time being. What is more, in the middle of this year the company made mass layoffs in its development teams, stating that it intends to focus primarily on the development of New World. According to the theories of industry experts, staff reductions and suspension of further projects were caused by problems with the Lumberyard engine, which powers them. Interestingly, only a month after the announcement of the changes in the studio's policy, Amazon announced that it is beginning work on another MMORPG, this time set in the universe of the Lord of the Rings.
