I've been addicted to this game since the closed beta. OMG 17 professions to level up is my idea of heaven in an RPG game. I really love the fact that there are quests designed for the upgrade/upkeep of your settlements that are purely profession based.
I also really like how the class system involves levelling up weapons rather than picking a specific class.
Will anyone else be getting this on launch day? If so would you be interested in setting up a company with me?
Really enjoyed the OB at the weekend, combat is just amazing putting everything else to shame in the mmo market imo.
As someone who really dislikes crafting in mmos it is so well done in this game.
By far the most immersive mmo ive played, i reckon il be buying at release, i just hope as a non pvp player it will offer some form of pve endgame.
Not sure why double posting?
There seems to be a lot of stuff to do for PVE and PVP endgame wise . I'm not a huge fan of pvp myself but I think I might try it in this game. It sounds like a clusterball of chaos!
Yeah ive since looked into endgame systems and its looking decent.
This video sums it up well.
New World is the type of game I'd play just to chill via solo gathering and crafting. Alas, everything else about it doesn't hook me over much. It's that type of game where I'll happily jump in, have a session, then dip until I get the urge again -- typically after digging into other games first. Unsure how well it's going to do, and I'd be lying if I said the beta 'grabbed' me beyond what has already been said, but I still consider it a worthwhile purchase as I just know that (in the end) it'll steal quite a lot of hours out of me over time.
May not be the most thrilling for streaming, but it's the type of game that'd be perfect for a more interactive chit-chat while doing so. I really do love me some gathering/crafting. FFXIV has a relatively similar aspect to it as well thanks to the nice gathering and crafting system. Easy to just go on a crafting/gathering binge and completely forget yourself for a few hours. New World seems to embrace that.
