In other news, Amazon has revealed that native controller support isn’t on the cards for New World.
Instead, the developer recommends using Steam controller support for anybody wishing to use a gamepad.
“There is no native controller support currently planned for New World. We do, however, encourage you to try the Steam controller support if you wish to play with a controller.”
“Explore a thrilling, open-world MMO filled with danger and opportunity where you’ll forge a new destiny for yourself as an adventurer shipwrecked on the supernatural island of Aeternum,” reads the official description.
“Endless opportunities to fight, forage, and forge await you among the island’s wilderness and ruins.
“Channel supernatural forces or wield deadly weapons in a classless, real-time combat system, and fight alone, with a small team, or in massed armies for PvE and PvP battles—the choices are all yours.”
The game has experienced one or two server issues since launch, although Amazon has promised to increase capacity in the coming days and weeks.
