A big change is coming to New World. That's because the game is shifting to a seasonal model with the first being titled “Fellowship & Fire” beginning March 28. Like most games, there will be a season pass offering two reward tracks: free and premium.

A season lasts for three months and presents new threats, festivities, features, and gameplay experiences. Basically, each season expands New World by offering more content on a more regular cadence while also integrating a new model for each type of player.

The Season Pass

The season pass is a way for players to earn rewards by playing the game. They can earn Season XP, level up, and unlock rewards as they progress through different activities. The Free Track offers helpful rewards including new skins, pets, Marks of Fortune, Boost Tokens, seasonal weapons and armor, Umbral Shards, Gypsum Orbs, and caches of materials.

The Premium Track, on the other hand, is purchasable for players level 25 or higher. This track offers extra rewards like cosmetics, Marks of Fortune, Boost Tokens, and even more seasonal loot. Players can choose the Premium Track at any time during the season and retroactively receive all eligible rewards. Once the season ends, any unearned unique seasonal rewards are vaulted.
