New World experiences a resurgence with Brimstone Sands

The recent release of the Brimstone Sands update for New World has brought Amazon Games' title to life with an unexpected number of players on Steam. The combination of the new features in the update and a 50% sale on Valve's platform have put New World into the spotlight again, placing it among the most popular MMORPGs on the platform with a record of more than 100,000 concurrent players last weekend. Many players have decided to give the game a second chance and many others have decided to explore Aeternum for the first time. 

A renewed experience

Brimstone Sands adds new content to New World in the form of a new weapon, the Greatsword, a new expedition, The Ennead, new player customization options to further develop your character, and more. But the biggest and more interesting addition is a revamp of the starting experience with a streamlined storyline, new quest dynamics and an optimized quest flow, and upgrades to major locations in the starting areas. This significant change has been enough to bring many players back to the game. Also, Amazon Games decided to open new servers a few days ago. These offer a brand new starting experience to all players that decide to begin their adventure in New World from scratch. It's something quite relevant in a game with a player-driven economy based on trade and manufacturing, and also allows for new conquest opportunities in PvP.

 

 

Will Brimstone Sands be enough to sustain New World for a long time? Probably not, but if the developer continues to improve the gameplay experience and keeps adding content, the game could become a solid alternative to some of the big titles in the genre. If left alone, New World will undoubtedly dwindle over time, as the competition in the genre is quite fierce, and new options are coming very soon, like the Dragonflight expansion for World of Warcraft
