New World has finally arrived, a wee bit later than originally planned (May 2020 was the first release date). No more delays—you can jump in right now. At least if you're playing on European servers. The rest of the regional servers will start opening up throughout the day.

To help you begin your adventure on the right foot, we've already put together some guides. First off, here are 10 New World tips to get you started, and from there you might want to check out our New World levelling build and our New World crafting guide.
It's going to take a while before we're able to pass judgement on this beefy MMO with our final review, but in the meantime you'll be able to read our review-in-progress, which will go up this week. You can also expect some more guides, videos and a performance review, so keep your eyes peeled.
