    I know we have a few MMOPRGs players around (like @Mithmarr @Marion and @Liue) and I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated thread for it.


    While some of you may not be that excited for New World, the March 2021 update looks pretty amazing. It's a VERY LONG patchnotes though, so if you are interested to hear more, here is a video from KiraTV.

    I'm actually getting more and more excited 😍

    I'm also excitedly waiting for this one! Amazon Game Studios - I want to check this out just for that already but also just craving to get into another MMORPG so I'm excited to see if this ticks all the boxes for me. It seems to have some elements of hunting and crafting which is important to me and I'm waiting to find out if it has the 'relaxation element' - i.e. in WoW if I'm too zzzz for fast-paced stuff like dungeons or raids (or even questing) I do like to take a moment and sit somewhere, fishing. Or gathering herbs or improving my pets collection. I have a feeling this game might have less opportunities for that but I haven't fully checked out all the updates and notes yet so might be wrong.

    I think you are right, it might not be the chill and relaxed experience you have in WoW, but I believe you can decide not to do PvP, so you will be able to enjoy. I do like the part where I explore and discover (hence enjoying the procedural side of games like Minecraft).

    I did pre-order New World though, I think I've played most MMOs in the last 20 years so I'll definitely join at least for the experience of the launch (and all the dramas that goes with it).

    From the March update I like that they are going into the direction of Dungeons, and bosses and other PvE activities. While it was (is?) aimed at a PvP games, I think they understand that they will reach many more people with something more accessible.

    I can't wait for the next play test 😀

    Just noticed that the closed beta for New World starts 20 July, so not super long to wait now. I caved in and about to pre-order it now to secure access to the beta! Steam game page says availability 31 August - remember when it felt like it was ages away? Has this date been officially confirmed do you know guys?

    @Elixor Maybe Hades in the Europe list for me, sounds cool but no real thought behind that choice though. 😎
