An enormous New World update arrives on March 29, and it finally completes the game’s main story.
While the patch includes literally hundreds of changes, it’s headlined by the inclusion of the game’s final main storyline quest, called The Heart of the Tempest, through which players can finally take on the mysterious and evil Isabella.
The new story mission is given by Yseult Meredith at the Mountain Home Outpost in Shattered Mountain and developer Amazon Games recommends players be at level 60 with Gearscores between 550 and 570.
It’s not clear what Amazon Games plans to do with the storyline of the game beyond your confrontation with Isabella, although we’d guess there may be tease included.
Also in this update is a new weapon, the Blunderbuss, which operates best at close and mid-range and is the first weapon to scale with strength and intelligence, making it an ideal tool for bruisers and mages.
The Blunderbuss comes with two weapon mastery trees to work through and, upon reaching level 60 and the maximum skill level, a new legendary weapon quest series.
World exploration is another focus of the update as Amazon Games has added two collectible paintings in each territory and players can now find a number of unique enemies roaming around different landscapes that offer rare rewards.
As mentioned, the patch includes literally hundreds of other fixes, changes, and additions to New World, and players can view the full notes on the game’s official website.
In our 6/10 review, IGN said: “New World is a very pretty survival-MMORPG hybrid that saves its best moments for the endgame – but you have to be willing to grind like hell to get to them.”
