New World This Is Aeternum Gameplay Trailer

New World

Amazon Game Studios have released a new gameplay trailer for upcoming MMORPG New World, showing some of the monsters players will face.

Players are colonists exploring the world of Aeturnum; a new frontier Age of Discovery-inspired land, where The Corrupted take the dead men and beasts and use their bodies to repel the new settlers. Shipwrecked, make your stand on this new land in real-time combat with sword, spell, or pistol.

The game was originally set to launch in May 2020, then delayed to August 25th, Spring 2021, and finally August 31st, 2021. Those who pre-order now can join in the closed beta on July 20th.

You can find the This Is Aeternum trailer below, showing some of the fantastic beasts and how to kill them.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

Explore a thrilling, open-world MMO filled with danger and opportunity where you’ll forge a new destiny for yourself as an adventurer shipwrecked on the supernatural island of Aeternum. Endless opportunities to fight, forage, and forge await you among the island’s wilderness and ruins. Channel supernatural forces or wield deadly weapons in a classless, real-time combat system, and fight alone, with a small team, or in massed armies for PvE and PvP battles—the choices are all yours.


For thousands of years, Aeternum has been the source of fantastical legends—and now you’ve found it. Shipwrecked and without supplies or allies, you’ll need to make your way in a dangerous world where supernatural power has changed all the rules. In such a land, your destiny is whatever you make of it.

Aeternum’s mysteries run as deep and dark as its history. Delve into the world and uncover the secret truth of the island and its millennia of strange inhabitants. As you explore Aeternum, you’ll discover beauty, danger, and opportunity at every turn. You’ll need to use all your skills to take advantage of the island’s bounty—and survive its horrors.

Arm yourself with brutal melee weapons, ranged artillery, or supernatural powers and jump into New World’s classless, real-time action combat system. As you progress you’ll be able to determine what you want your gameplay experience to be like—will you act as a protective shield on the front lines of battle? Will you sling spells to support your allies from a safe distance? Only you can decide.

At the core of the New World’s social features are the three factions, organizations of like-minded players and non-player characters with their own motives and schemes for the island’s future. It is as a member of one of these factions that you’ll wage war and claim, defend, and develop your territory.

New World launches August 31st on Windows PC (via Steam).
