I didn't know Amazon had a MMO in the works, but I guess they do. I would have assumed it'd be super generic. But apparently not: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/0 ... ext-month/

“New World is an Open World MMO that pits players against the haunted wilderness of Aeternum, a mysterious island during the twilight of the Age of Exploration,” it says. “Success in New World ultimately depends on a player’s ability to conquer not only rival players, but Aeternum itself as it unleashes undead legions, hell-bent on purging them from its shores.”


bold choice to cast the players as the bad guys from Spirit Island.


"All we have to do is make the natives into undead zombie ghouls! It'll be fine!" (just don't ask what killed them all).

I have to wonder if they're intentionally positioning this as a Culture War property in order to siphon easy money from the gator swamp.
