Perfect New World is a Brand New Upcoming Global MMORPG
Despite the unusual name (that seems to be an amalgamation of both the upcoming “New World” MMORPG from Amazon Game Studios, but also of the “Perfect World” MMORPG from Perfect World Entertainment,) it seems as though we’re getting a brand new upcoming open-world MMORPG later this year.
Yes, while we don’t know specifically what type of release is going to take place in 2021 (Alpha? Beta? Full release?) What we do know is that Perfect World Games are in the process of developing multiple MMORPGs, specifically, Perfect New World, for both PC and consoles. Yes you heard that correctly! This MMO is going to be completely cross-platform compatible, meaning that players will be able to play on their PC or the PS5/Xbox (if they opt to release on both, as currently the platforms in question are unconfirmed.)
You’d think considering this is being made under the same “Perfect World” IP that this would be a remake or a sequel, but it turns out they’re developing this to be run concurrently from the main Perfect World title, being entirely disconnected. Perfect New World is going to bring with it new features, new graphics, an overhauled combat system (although we’re uncertain whether it’s going to be action or tab-target,) and more.
Perfect New World Global Release?
Yes, Perfect New World has been confirmed to be releasing globally. We don’t have an exact release date for the global release as we don’t even have an exact release date for the Chinese incarnation of the game but it’s worth noting that they’re developing the MMO for global audiences in mind. So while it very well might end up pay-to-win, it should also cater (even if a little,) to Western players.
Now this is an interesting MMO announcement. I never anticipated Perfect World Games to develop another Perfect World MMORPG, especially given how much of my life (and money around 2008-2010) I wasted on that game, but here we are, with my past coming right back to the forefront of my life. Which I’m not complaining about, as those 2 years were some of the best of my entire career online playing video games.
I’m excited to see where Perfect New World ultimately ends up as this looks so drastically different to what we’re all used to, but at the same time I’m definitely cautiously optimistic.
