The famous World of Warcraft Twitch streamer Asmongold commented on Amazon’s New World closed beta for PC. According to him, the MMORPG from Amazon Games is still very far from the release state.
Asmongold Says Amazon’s New World Is “broken”
Trouble ahead for Amazon’s New World MMORPG title. The beta of the game has been available for a few days now, so everyone was able to watch, play and judge New World for themselves. Among these, perhaps the most important is certainly Asmongold, a streamer dedicated to the MMO genre, with FFXIV and previously World of Warcraft.
He has played the game for 182 hours, and is convinced that New World is not ready for the official release on August 31st. Among the list of problems, Asmongold mentioned the incessant lag hits, numerous bugs and glitches, and in general a lot of malfunction in the servers.
“It is so dysfunctional. It is so laggy. It is so broken. It is not ready,” said Asmongold on YouTube. “And I don’t know what they’re gonna do. Because to be honest, I feel like a lot of the core issues with the game have not gotten fixed.”
The release of New World is slated for August 31st on Steam. According to the SteamDB service, over the past 24 hours, the MMORPG has updated the record for simultaneous players online, exceeding 200,000 concurrent players. The cost of the standard edition of the game is $39.99.
On July 26, Asmongold asked video game developers to reserve nicknames for popular streamers. He believes that this will avoid situations where fraudsters register the names of content producers and damage their reputations.
Even if the game is hit on Steam at an early stage of its development, New World still has been reported by many players that it bricks the costly NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards.
