New World Tops 700K Concurrent Players at Launch

New World Tops 700K Concurrent Players

Amazon Games’ recently launched colonial-themed MMORPG New World tops 700K concurrent players, an impressive milestone for the heavily delayed game.

The news that New World tops 700K concurrent players comes alongside mixed reports of users being unable to enter crowded servers, to which Amazon Games’ has started allowing players to transfer between servers for free until server congestion is mitigated.

“We understand that some players are experiencing lengthy queue times and we are working hard on a few things to help address these issues,” the developer said in a new update.

They added, “We are continuing to stand up additional servers and will expand the capacity of our existing servers once we have properly tested these changes.”

At the time of writing, New World is sitting comfortably at 717,000 concurrent users logged into the game, and user reviews are already flooding in. The current average is 46% of user reviews are positive, and our own thorough review will be coming shortly.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

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.


  • CARVE YOUR DESTINY – 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.
  • A LAND SHAPED BY MAGIC – 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.
  • SWORDS, GUNS & SORCERY – 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.
  • STRONGER TOGETHER – 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 is now available on Windows PC via Steam.
