Amazon Game Studios is allowing players who have pre-ordered prior to July 26th or alpha tested, into a density test that begins July 30th. The test is aiming to stress the servers for an upcoming New World Preview.
In the announcement post, information is also provided on giving players access for an upcoming preview starting around August 25th. In the preview, all beta sign ups prior to July 9th, alpha players, and all preorders will be invited to join in on making their mark in the New World (sans Pilgrim outfits). The New World preview will also not be under any NDA, so everyone who joins will be able to speak their mind, stream their experience, and tweet their progress to their hearts’ content.
