New World is entering Open Beta and it will be from September 9 to September 12. This should be enough time to experience what the game has to offer before the official launch on September 28.

Open Beta is a way for developers to see how the server infrastructure holds up. Compared to the Closed Beta, this test offers higher server capacity. It goes without saying that the launch should have better server performance.

Those who can join the Open Beta should be happy to know that even during the test, they can share, record, and even broadcast their gameplay. Read more about the Open Beta here.

Developed by Amazon Games, New World offers an open-world MMO filled with both opportunity and danger. In the game, players take on the role of an adventurer who's been shipwrecked on the island of Aeternum.
