A closed beta test started at Amazon Games’ New World early last week. And while players complained that the MMORPG was crippling the RTX 3090 and other graphics cards, that didn’t stop the game from hitting the 200K concurrent player mark on Steam.
In terms of peak online on Steam over the past 24 hours, New World took the sixth place and surpassed such games as Rust, Warframe, Path of Exile, Football Manager 2021, ARK: Survival Evolved and Rainbow Six Siege. Previously, pre-orders of both MMORPG editions took the leading positions in the weekly Steam chart.
The New World closed beta test will end on August 2 and the game will be released on August 31.
