During the PC Gaming Show, Amazon Games revealed a new trailer for their MMORPG New World. The video is focused on the game's combat system: the team behind New World consists of veteran game developers who previously worked on World of Warcraft, Destiny, and more, so it stands to reason that, if nothing else, New World will probably be a fun game to play!

Check out the video below:

Amazon's official synopsis follows:

New World is an Open World MMO that pits players against the haunted wilderness of Aeternum, a mysterious island during the twilight of the Age of Exploration. Success in New World ultimately depends on a player's ability to conquer not only rival players, but Aeternum itself as it unleashes undead legions, hell-bent on purging them from its shores.

Massive battles set New World apart, with fortress sieges against other players and supernatural invasions that feature up to 100 players on the battlefield at once. Combat in New World is visceral and skill-based, giving players direct control over their movements and attacks. Aeternum is rife with danger and conflict, but rich in opportunity for soldiers, explorers, artisans and empire-builders. Players can band together to form powerful Companies operating out of fortified strongholds, or play alone and acquire and customize their own homes as they contribute to the growth of the larger community around them. New World provides near-limitless play, with classless character progression, social systems, and rich crafting mechanics.

New World will launch for PC on August 25th. Pre-ordering the game will secure access to the closed beta, which begins on July 23rd.
