New World: Aeternum pops up on the PlayStation Store

UPDATE 11.50pm UK: Tonight’s Summer Game Fest show has confirmed New World: Aeternum, which will launch on 15th October and bring Amazon’s MMO to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S for the first time.

Also launching on PC, this will be an updated version of New World and its previous Rise of the Angry Earth expansion, plus the game’s first large-scale PVP zone, a raid for 10 players, endgame solo trials, an improved levelling experience and more.

PC owners with Rise of the Angry Earth will get the Aeternum version of New World as a free upgrade.

Something titled New World: Aeternum has been spotted on the PlayStation Store, setting tongues wagging ahead of an expected announcement tonight.

Developed by Amazon Games, New World originally launched for PC in 2021, and is still yet to arrive on consoles. The advert for New World: Aeternum on PlayStation consoles certainly suggests this may soon change.

An MMORPG set in a fictional version of 1600s America, New World initially arrived with something of a buzz, and had nearly a million concurrent players soon after launch. Things have calmed down since, with more modest players in the double digit thousands over the past couple of years – something a console launch now could revive.

The addition of a subtitle, Aeternum, suggests this isn’t the same version of New World that exists on PC currently. Whether this is merely a subtitle for a console version (and whether it also arrives on Xbox) remains to be seen.

But it’s been a while since the last New World expansion, and New World’s social media has been teasing something big being announced tonight during the Summer Game Fest show. It may be we see Aeternum announced as an update for the base game on PC too – as well as a fresh jumping off point for new players on consoles.

Summer Game Fest’s livestream kicks off at 10pm UK time tonight, and you can watch all the announcements right here on Eurogamer.
