AMAZON has delayed its long-awaited New World video game for the third time.

The upcoming MMORPG is set to be a blockbuster release – but will miss its spring launch.

Amazon first teased New World back in September 2016.

Its original release was set for the spring of 2020, but was then delayed to August that year.

Then it was pushed back again to spring 2021.

And now Amazon has kicked the can down the road once more, pointing to an August 31 release date.

There’s currently an Alpha test of the game running right now with a very limited number of users.

A Closed Beta version of the game will then go live on July 20.

It's set in the mid-1600s

This will include anyone who has already pre-ordered New World.

The game is an MMORPG, or massively multiplayer online RPG.

In that sense, it’s competing with games like World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV and Black Desert Online.

The game is set in the mid-17th century where you’re colonising a fictional island in The Atlantic Ocean.

It’s called Aeternum Island, and it’s modelled on colonial America.

You’ll create your own character, arrive on the island, and work your way up to level 60.

Gamers can form groups with other players, join factions, explore, learn skills and more.

There’s PVE content including dungeon-style expeditions.

And PVP fans will enjoy modes like Outpost Rush.

Amazon recently cancelled a separate game called Crucible, and shifted bolster New World development instead.

In other news, The Sun’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.

Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.

And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
