Currently, the game is playing out its closed beta test for those that have pre-ordered the game. Therefore, if you have pre-ordered, you will be able to attend this closed-beta on supported platforms.
You would think that since Amazon owns both Luna and New World, you would be able to play the closed beta on Amazon's cloud gaming platform, but unfortunately, it is not currently available in the cloud at this time.
In fact, last year, the Twitter user @The_Ashes2Ashes was able to see that New World was added to Amazon Luna, only to be quickly taken down soon after it appeared.
Although this does not help with the current question of whether or not the game will be available to play for the closed beta on Amazon Luna, it does bring up the high possibility that the game will be available to play on the cloud gaming platform in the future. So whether this be the open beta or at full release, we will likely see it playable on Amazon Luna!
What is New World?
New World is an upcoming MMORPG from the Amazon Games studios.
Explore a thrilling, open-world MMO filled with danger and opportunity where you'll forge a new destiny for yourself as an adventurer shipwrecked on the supernatural island of Aeternum. Endless opportunities to fight, forage, and forge await you among the island's wilderness and ruins. Channel supernatural forces or wield deadly weapons in a classless, real-time combat system, and fight alone, with a small team, or in massed armies for PvE and PvP battles—the choices are all yours.
