The new World May Update PTR opens, with several new PvP features, Expedition mutators, and combat tuning
Amazon has opened the PTR for the upcoming major update for New world comes in May. The update includes several major changes including 3v3 player vs player arena combat, a new PvP reward track, battle tuning, new Expedition mutators, and more.
This time around, there is only one PTR server in the US East region for this test to maximize population and encourage grouping. Given that this update will bring significant PVP updates, it makes sense to have a stable and large enough population to test successfully.
For players who stayed patient New world content expansion and stabilization work, bug fixes and server merges, PvP is getting its time to shine. The Amazon Games team aims to provide more fun and competitive play, but also two new PvP-related currencies. The two new currencies are PvP XP and Azoth Salt. You earn both simply by participating in PvP content. There are three tiers and each time you level up you can buy and a reward of 3 will be presented to you from the total pool. You reach the third level and he will level up and reach a new milestone. How PvP leveling and ranking works.
Also in PvP is the new 3vs3 arena mode. Arena Matches is a small PvP mode with a best-of-five ruleset. If your team wins three games, you win loot from a reward pool that also includes some unique housing items.
The update will also include 3 new Expeditions mutators, bringing the total pool to 27. There is also some mid-level content coming, with The Crusher, Episode 2 of the Varangian Knights story content. The team also fine-tuned several combat setups, changes, and bonuses during the test.
In Quality of Life updates, players can also set their pronouns that accompany chat and emotes.
The PTR patch notes are extensive, but if you plan to participate in the PTR testing phase, it’s worth going through them in full.
