    Finally something to give me a little hope for this genre's future.
    It's been looking very bleak this last year.
    Going to be following this one very closely :)

    Nice to see the possibility of another Sandbox coming up.  I like the M rating as well as it seems to be an effective filter for keeping people who are more easily offended out of the game.
    or those who find such content boring and passe

    Please do not respond to me, even if I ask you a question, its rhetorical.

    My problem is the Mature rating... I'm Christian (Catholic) and I dont play games with that rating.

    Too bad, was excited. Not now. Wont be playing.

    Back to WoW and waiting for Camelot Unchained.
    what does rating have to do with being able to play a game or not? Why would it matter if it was rated "Teen", and if it was the same exact game? If it helps, in the UK will be rated teen as they aren't as fanatical over there about ratings as in the US. Even nudity is allowed there and anyone can see it no matter the age lol

    But I'm guessing this is just a troll post made to make laughs :D
    I dont troll, thanks... No, its all about nudity. I can deal with violence and scary things. But it is against my religion and morals to be exposed to nudity when I make all efforts to keep purity for Jesus. I dont know if they will have nudity in it but in most games with the Mature rating tag, there it is. I plan on playing Camelot Unchained because I love PvP and it has hardly any nudity whatsoever.

    Now if someday I find out this game is Mature rating only for scary imagery, and minimal nudity, then yes I will probably play it. But right now the Mature rating makes me think against that.
    Respectfully 

    I've never seen an MMORPG with any nudity

    Do they exist?

    Well glad to see someone with a fuck ton of money is willing to give the sandbox MMO another go.

    I have serious doubts that this will be a deep sandbox MMORPG - they are going for watchability, and twitch streaming - complexity and depth make BORING streams. 

    Black Desert with all it's system is boring as shit to watch, same with a lot of farming/crafting intricacies of AA - it's boring for others to watch that.

    Since all Amazon games are going for heavy "twitchability" - I don't think they're going to be very complex/deep games - so even as a sandbox - I expect this one to be a very light sandbox game.


    Just my 2c.

    See this:

    "Focused on emergent gameplay and rich social features – including deep Twitch integration with broadcaster-led events, achievements, and rewards – your only limit in the New World is your ambition."

    Broadcaster led events?
    Achievements?

    Does that sound like a deep sandbox MMORPG to you - nope

    Their top priority is to make it very watchable and streamable, not to make a deep MMORPG
    If twitch streaming is their main priority. IMHO they are in big trouble concerning all these games.

    If the games suck, Twitch won't help them one single solitary bit.

    The period of the game set in 17th century is really nice and it picks my interest.
    yeah I have to admit I find American Frontier era far more interesting as an MMO concept
    It's not the frontier era, that's about 200 years ahead of when this game is taking place. This is 17th century America - the 1600's when the first settlers came here and all we had were a few of the original 13 colonies and also Native Americans. We weren't even the United States yet.

    Interesting, but twitch integration. I play games to relax not have a second job.

    yes, I know, I was stating that I find that era (american froniter) as an MMO more intresting

    Age of Conan. Except they nerfed it by covering up the pubic area before release with painted on undie textures. And it was only female boobs, and they were painted on nipples (like painted on undies). And the boobs were pretty blocky. It looked more like a barbie doll does, except really badly made boobs. Compared to a modded Skyrim where it was 1000x more realistic lol.

    The Secret World used to have nudity, but funcom nerfed that as well. It probably would have been as bad as AOC anyway lol, since their character models suck like hell.

    I can't think of any others. There is RUST that has male/female nudity, but that isn't an actual MMO.

    You can also get nude mods for WoW and many other MMOs. The ones for WoW are actually much better done than even AOC lol. I don't actually use them though, since I don't want to see naked tauren or undead in my game lol.

    This is different, interesting genera that hasn't been used much in MMOs. These first games, Amazon is coming out swinging big time.

    No one is going to play any game for its Twichability. Amazon is just laying the Twitch angle on thick for cross promotion purposes just like you can pretty well bank on a highly modable UI for the Curse angle.

    If it didn't have well-known industry pros on board, that'd be a different story, but it does.

    I just seen the Prime Logo next to the price and pre-Ordered it, for 0.00$ and after Check Out it placed New World by Amazon Games Studios, LLC in my Amazon games Library. So there isn't much fuss in clicking the pre-Order button.

    Too bad Adam Weishaupt didn't form the Illuminati until 1776 or that could have been an interesting aspect to explore.
    Or did he? He "formed" it in 1776 according to what we've been told, up to this point. It could be much much older.

    aside from bringing 'twitch' into the mix all these games just feel...meh. they arent bringing anything revolutionary or exciting, the we dotn currently see fail before

    like their phone and tablet before it...not hating on Amazon= that is where i do 95% of my shopping. maybe i was expecting an mmo- wish theyd buy wildstar.

    Twitch is the key design concept for all of their games.

    They want to create a new consumer base that plays, streams and watches twitch. 

    I mean Amazon is looking to make billions here via advertising to masses through twitch.

    They basically want to replace TV with twitch (as far as gamers go)
    This is very insightful. Bezos builds platforms. Amazon is one of the most robust platforms in the world really only rivaled by Microsoft, Apple, and Facebook. Google is almost there and they've not been sitting on their arses but they're still behind the curve surprisingly for all the advantages they have.

    This G+ post of Steve Yegge is very informative. It's super long, but if you're into this sort of thing it's an amazing read. Google has been busy since the rant was written, but it's still behind in developing a complete platform. https://plus.google.com/+RipRowan/posts/eVeouesvaVX

    It's not just about making billions, in my opinion, it's about Bezos and Amazon wanting to be the premier global platform for everything digital.

    can people stop bringing religion into this thread please and stay on topic.
    The acronym MMORPG use to mean Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game.

    But the acronym MMMORPG now currently means Microscopic Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. Kappa.

    Agreed. It's a shame that the entire thread has been derailed because someone felt the need to bring religion into it. And this is exactly why it's against the site's code of conduct.

    This thread also explains why the world is in such political crisis... It's quite enlightening I must admit. Such magnificent anthropological study hidden among comments about a game.

    But for a conversation with religion and morals it lacks the required awful GIF's of "Have a great day" with kittens and sparky effects, excessive use of exclamation marks and the total oblivion to the idea we are not on mid Europe dark ages anymore.

    He just related his belief system and why. He didn't ask anyone else to get on board with him. He only suggested that his reasons were based on his belief system.

    We all have religion and belief systems we use to make these same decisions what ever you want to call it. The only people bringing religion into the discussion are those that object to him having it.

    At the risk of sounding like a first grader, he started it with his "My problem is the Mature rating... I'm Christian (Catholic) and I dont play games with that rating."

    A simple "mature rating... I won't play" would have sufficed if anything along those lines even needed to be shared.

    Most of us practice our religions or lack of, quietly and privately with those that share our beliefs. I can't say I've ever been tempted to share mine on a gaming forum. For one thing, it's irrelevant... not to mention it's really tough to bring it up in a mixed crowd without sounding preachy about it.

    There are good reasons not to bring religion or politics into discussion areas where they don't belong.

    I swear there has been an increase in a lot religious and political trolls lately all over the web tied to just random fake accounts (not all, but many). A lot of them have been bashing every game, (or anything for that mater) they see as objectionable. I see this on steam a lot and sometimes here. I don't know if these people are paid by private organizations with agendas to troll, witch hunt and shove their agendas down our throats or what, but it's absurd and getting out of control. I have seen lots of these accounts reported and closed for making threats, siring up forums with troll comments and it all kinda goes against the message they are trying to push. Make it stop xD

    It doesn't really sound like a sandbox, but more of the older themepark/sandparks that has variety and a lot of options. It is probably better that it isn't a true sandbox. While it seems a lot of people clamor for one, they get boring fast and don't seem to last. I don't really think it is that popular of a style, more like people want a lot of sandbox elements in their game.

    It does sound like it will be a pvp game, probably turn into a griefer's paradise. I have like no hype for it at all lol. No interest in twitch either. I do like the era though. It is different and sounds interesting. I'll probably look at it in 5 years when it is in beta lol.
