New World: Rise of the Angry Earth is the first expansion for New World, a popular open-world MMORPG game developed by Amazon Games. The expansion will be released on October 3, 2023, and will introduce various new features, content, and changes to the game. In this article, we will give you an overview of what to expect from New World: Rise of the Angry Earth, and why you should be excited about it.
One of the main attractions of New World: Rise of the Angry Earth is the new story that will reveal the secrets behind the fall of First Light, one of the original regions of Aeternum. First Light was once a peaceful and prosperous place where newcomers to the island could find refuge and resources. However, something terrible happened that caused the land to be corrupted by the Angry Earth, a faction of hostile and mutated creatures that are driven by a primal force.
Now, First Light is a dangerous and desolate wasteland where only the bravest adventurers dare to venture. A mysterious barrier prevents anyone from entering or leaving the region, and no one knows what has become of the people and settlements that used to live there. What caused this catastrophe? What secrets lie within the barrier? What is the true nature of the Angry Earth? These are some of the questions that you can answer as you embark on a new main quest line that will take you to the heart of the mystery.
Along with the new story, New World: Rise of the Angry Earth will also introduce a new zone to explore: Elysian Wilds. Elysian Wilds is a lush and vibrant region that is located south of First Light, and is home to a variety of flora and fauna that have been enhanced by the earthly powers. Elysian Wilds is also where you will encounter the Beast Lords, a new type of enemy that are half-human and half-animal, and have mastered the art of taming and riding mounts.
Elysian Wilds will offer you a new and refreshing experience in New World, as you will be able to enjoy its beautiful scenery, discover its hidden secrets, and face its unique challenges. You will also be able to interact with its inhabitants, such as Artemis, the leader of the Beast Lords, who will play a key role in your quest. Elysian Wilds will also feature new landmarks, resources, enemies, quests, events, and more.
One of the most anticipated features of New World: Rise of the Angry Earth is the addition of mounts, which will allow you to travel faster and easier across Aeternum. Mounts are animals that you can tame and ride, such as horses, dire wolves, and lions. Each mount has its own appearance, personality, and stats, and you can customize them with different equipment and names. You can also level up your mounts by feeding them with special food that you can craft or buy.
To unlock mounts in New World: Rise of the Angry Earth, you will need to complete a series of quests that will teach you how to tame and ride them. You will also need to level up your Riding Trade Skill, which will grant you access to higher tier mounts and upgrades. Riding Trade Skill can be leveled up by using your mounts in various activities, such as exploring, fighting, or gathering.
Mounts will make your travel more convenient and fun and more strategic and dynamic. You will be able to use your mounts in combat situations, such as charging at enemies or dodging attacks. You can also use your mounts in cooperative situations, such as carrying items or passengers. However, you will also need to take care of your mounts, as they can be damaged or killed by enemies or environmental hazards.
Another major feature of New World: Rise of the Angry Earth is the new progression system that will increase your character's level cap from 60 to 65 and unlock new skills, engravings, gems, and gear for your character. You will also be able to level up your Trade Skills from 200 to 250, and unlock new recipes, materials, and items for your crafting and gathering. You will also be able to level up your Reputation with the new factions you will encounter in the expansion, such as the Beast Lords and the Angry Earth. You will also earn new achievements, titles, and rewards for your progress.
New World: Rise of the Angry Earth is an exciting and ambitious expansion that will add a lot of new content and features to the game. It will also provide a deeper and richer story that will reveal more about the history and secrets of Aeternum.
