From Press Release:
Today, Amazon Games announced that New World: Rise of the Angry Earth, the first expansion for the open world MMORPG, will launch October 3. New World: Rise of the Angry Earth introduces mounts, new progression which increases the level cap to 65, as well as new gear rarity, weapon, a transformed Zone, a new end-game Expedition, Heartrune ability, and more. Players can discover Aeternum’s next chapter for $29.99. New players can pick up both the base game and the expansion for $69.99 as part of the New World: Elysian Edition bundle.
In Rise of the Angry Earth, the southeastern tip of Aeternum, formerly known as First Light, has fallen. Once a welcoming place for newcomers to Aeternum, the fields have been ravaged by the fury of Artemis and the Angry Earth. No one is certain what has become of the people and villages that once populated the area, and a deadly barrier has kept all but the most intrepid from attempting to find out. This abundance of earthly powers has awakened the mighty Beast Lords, a new possible adversary facing the people of Aeternum, but with them also comes a boon – the secret to taming and riding animals.
New World: Rise of the Angry Earth players will be able to summon a mount for faster traversal across Aeternum, mastering horses, dire wolves, and lions, each with a unique look, dyeable equipment and a name players can set. Players will also have access to a new weapon – the Flail. The Flail is a versatile one-handed weapon with the option for an offhand shield. Through a combination of melee, arcane magic, and strong defenses, the wielder can bolster their group’s effectiveness without dropping the offensive.
Season 3 of New World will launch alongside Rise of the Angry Earth, introducing a new Season Journey, Activity Card, Challenges, events, rewards and more.
Stay tuned for more details on when Rise of the Angry Earth and Season 3 will be available on the PTR for active New World players.
