Twitch star streamer Asmongold was stunned to see how empty New World was upon his return, and he hopes the game’s player base doesn’t die out entirely.
The wind has been taken out of New World’s sails in recent months.
After the massive launch of the MMO in September 2021, it has seen a steady loss of players. It has also struggled for relevance as Amazon Game Studios released another MMO, Lost Ark, which was a massive hit and has been topping the charts since its release.
With seemingly no space left for New World, Asmongold believes there is still hope it can survive long-term, but was shocked at how many players the game lost when he returned to Aeternum.
Asmongold stunned by the “dead” New World
The 30-year-old streamer was live on March 29 as he hopped back to the New World after a hiatus.
The OTK member was stunned to see how empty the game’s world was.
“Oh my god, where is everyone?” Damn, that’s sad. Whenever I stopped playing, the game continued. Well, it didn’t really work out, but a lot of people played.”
He continued, “This is really so freaking depressing. How do I play the game now? Because you can’t do group content. It’s just sad bro.”
Asmon explained that he used to “love” streaming New World and said it was the “perfect” game to broadcast on his second channel. zackrawrr.
“I hope they can get back together, I know there are people who don’t like New World but I’m not one of those people.”
The MMO published by Amazon has fallen 700,000 daily players in March 2022. Despite its dramatic decline, Asmongold is hoping the game can regain the moment it had at launch.
