New World Shows Off Shattered Mountain In Its Final Touring Aeternum Video

New World is closing out its Touring Aeternum video series, this time showing the fiery and dark region of Shattered Mountain. 

The defining feature of Shattered Mountain is, well, its Shattered Mountain on the horizon. The craggy, labyrinthine region is home to corrupted, meaning you'll want to stop off in Mountainrise to craft those all-important tinctures, according to the narrator.

While much of Shattered Mountain seems dark, the northern reaches are full of flora, albeit blighted flora. Further north is Rotfellow Hovel, which the narrator warns is home to some of the "foulest beasts in Aeternum."

The region of Shattered Mountain also includes the Scorched Mines, where players will need to delve deeply to unlock its secrets. Shattered Mountain is home, as stated, to much corruption, and the northwest sees much of this in the Desolate Cliffs and Mortal Mire. The region looks, well, desolate, with a red haze covering the landscape. 

Shattered Mountain is also home to what New World calls the "greatest challenge in Aeternum," the Myrkgard. 

"When you're ready for your greatest challenge in Aeternum, head tot he Myrkgard - the crown fortress of Aeternum, now a hellscape of fearsome beasts and murderous, corrupted humans," the narrator states. Amazon promises that the challenge here will be "immense" and this looks to be one of the MMO's major endgame areas for players to explore.

You can check out the full video in the embed above. Yesterday, New World saw a completely different side of itself, hosting a fashion show to give players a glimpse at some of the armor styles they could earn whilst playing the MMO when it releases at the end of August.
