Players have hit back at plans to introduce a premium currency shop in Amazon’s upcoming MMORPG, New World.
The leak – which comes via the game’s current alpha-test and was shared on Reddit – alleges that New World is introducing in-game purchases for “special cosmetic items for players and their in-game homes” and “may sell quality-of-life items or boosts that will help players improve their time spent levelling up their character and trade skill experience”.
In response, the official Twitter account for the studio developing the game posted a statement, insisting that “all store items at launch will be exclusively cosmetic in nature” and that the storefront was introduced in the Alpha test “to test these items and their value”.
