The official launch of New World is barely two months away. But that doesn’t mean you need to wait that long. A closed beta test will start next week to let players experience what that game has to offer. The test starts July 20 and runs until August 2.

Eligibility and Access

If you’re one of those interested to join the closed beta, you can sign up here. Not all can qualify since participants are going to be randomly selected.

You can also pre-order the game on Steam or Amazon to get access. Those who choose Amazon need to do it before July 19. They then should get the official invite by July 19. Meanwhile, those who pre-order on Steam can immediately get access to the beta program.

By the way, the closed beta is only available for those in North America, Europe, Australia, and Brazil.


Speaking of pre-order, access isn’t the only one offered. There are also these goodies:
