Arenas mode has finally arrived in New World.
Amazon Games revealed the 2022 roadmap for its fantasy MMO, New World (opens in new tab), back in March. The roadmap said that spring 2022 (or Q2 for our friends in the southern hemisphere) would bring the Tempest’s Heart expedition, the Blunderbuss, as well as 3v3 PvP arenas and a PvP reward track.
In a “Best-of-5” contest, Arenas tasks you to be the first team to win three rounds and secure the match. Rounds typically last two minutes, but things heat up after that – literally: “A deadly ring of fire will push players to the center of the arena, forcing combatants to engage or die!”
