Do you want to get in to the next New World Open Beta? Here's how to do it.

Amazon Games' highly anticipated MMORPG, New World, has received wide acclaim from content creators and streamers who managed to gain access to either its open or closed beta. After getting a bit of player feedback during those periods, the studio decided to delay its launch to implement the suggestions and make the game as good as it can be.

Now, eager players are looking for a way back in.

How to Request Access to the New World Open Beta

The next open beta period kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 9, at 10 a.m. ET (7 p.m. PT). The window will close three days later on Sept. 12 at 2:59 a.m. ET (11:59 p.m. PT). Those who want access to the next will need an active Steam account.

Here are the steps to request access to the New World Open Beta:

  • Open Steam and navigate to the Steam Store
  • Locate New World's store page
  • Scroll down about halfway until the option "Join the New World Open Beta" appears on the left side of the page
  • Click "Request Access." This will prompt a pop-up.
  • Click "Request Access" on the pop-up.

From there, the platform will inform you that your interested has been registered. Players will be contacted once the developer is ready for more participants to their beta via the e-mail associated with their Steam account.
