Amazon has released another set of images from its upcoming player-driven MMO New World (opens in new tab). Revealed on Twitter as part of the #screenshotsaturday hashtag, the images provide a further glimpse of the detailed environments Amazon is trying to create. 

This time, the images depict a windmill, a moonlit river and, ah, a big tree. It would've been great to see a sword fight or a fortress being blown up or something, but oh well—they are at least pretty. Amazon put out a similar batch of screenshots last week (opens in new tab), which also included a neat time-lapse video showing off the day/night cycle.

New World is a fantasy MMO centring around the discovery of a new continent. It’s a player-centric experience, in which players band together to build castles and other structures, setting quests for one another, and of course fighting over territory. Sam went hands-on (opens in new tab) with it in August, stating that the game “leverages the retail giant's AWS cloud computing services to let potentially thousands of players share a massive environment.”

In addition to the new screens, Amazon has put out another call for people interested in the game to sign-up for alpha testing. To do this, you need to visit the game's website (opens in new tab)and click the “Alpha Sign Up” button. From there, you login to your Amazon account and click “Email me”. 

If you’re accepted into the Alpha Testing program, Amazon will notify you with details at some point down the line. In the meantime, have a look at the latest batch of images below.
