New World: Aeternum - Announce Trailer

This new console version is launching with feature-parity with the PC version and supports cross-play. It's been designed from the get-go with console controls in mind, so it should run smoothly.

New World: Aeternum introduces the following new features:

  • New World’s first-ever large-scale player vs. player zone
  • A challenging 10-player raid
  • End-game solo trials
  • An upgraded leveling experience
  • new character archetypes
  • a revamped dialogue system, and much more.

While New World: Aeternum introduces new features for the existing PC version of the game, players have voiced concern regarding the update as it looks pretty light in terms of new content. The comments on the announcement trailer on Youtube are not flattering.
