New World has a potentially major problem

Don’t you dare close your eyes! Thanks, Amazon. Now you have me singing Disney songs almost out loud. After years of anticipation, Amazon’s MMO New World is now in beta phase and I finally got to sink my teeth into the starting areas of the game. While there is a ton to take in with a game that has no predefined classes or restrictions on things you can do, that can be quite overwhelming very quickly.

Amazon's latest video game, "New World," has a potentially major problem: Some players say the game "bricked," or destroyed, their wildly expensive and hard-to-find graphics card.

"I just bricked a 3090 in the main menu after setting my graphics quality to medium and hitting save," a Reddit user said in a new thread on Tuesday night. "Can't believe it. Anyone else had a catastrophic failure like this?"

Will the buzz last? MMO communities are renowned for burning through whatever content you put in front of them quickly and demanding more. Some players are alarmingly high level in the closed beta already. It's only been a week - I don't know how they do it! Levelling has already really slowed down for me. But here again, New World is in a good position in that its endgame content is other players. As long as fighting them over and over can remain entertaining, interest should stick.

Anyone who pre-orders the fantasy game on Amazon or via Steam for 39.99 euros (Standard Edition *) or 49.99 euros (Deluxe Edition *) can also plunge into the closed beta. Unlike World of Warcraft, there are no monthly subscription fees - ongoing monetization takes place through optional in-game purchases.

An Amazon Games representative sent Insider the following statement: "Hundreds of thousands of people played in the 'New World' Closed Beta yesterday, with millions of total hours played. We've received a few reports of players using high-performance graphics cards experiencing hardware failure when playing 'New World.' 'New World' makes standard DirectX calls as provided by the Windows API. We have seen no indication of widespread issues with 3090s, either in the beta or during our many months of alpha testing. The 'New World' Closed Beta is safe to play. In order to further reassure players, we will implement a patch today that caps frames per second on our menu screen. We're grateful for the support 'New World' is receiving from players around the world, and will keep listening to their feedback throughout Beta and beyond."

For the launch, Amazon has booked a number of big influencer names that are exploring New World together with their Twitch community. There are among others Gronkh, Phunkroyal, the Rocket Beans, Lara Loft, Anni The Duck, Dhalucard, Shlorox, Tinkerleo, Naguura, Sacriel, Zerator, Smashley and many other streamers.

Like every game with a comprehensive economic system, New World also has its Currency, which is Coins. With New World Coins, no matter what role you play in New World, you can buy equipment such as primary stones, food, flasks, and flower pots to produce or improve armor, repair armor, and more. Similarly, Coins are used in all transactions at the auction house. In addition, you also need Coins to learn new skills and spells in New World, buy pets, and acquire horse riding and flying skills.
