Game Modes in New World are special systems that are distinct from the standard gameplay flow of adventuring in Aeternum's overworld. Game Modes are often group activities and some even have a competitive aspect involved. 

  • Game Modes can be PvP (Player-versus-Player), PvE (Player-versus-Environment) or a combination of the two.
  • Most Game Modes are instanced and require players to queue up for Matchmaking. Depending on the Game Mode, many queues can be joined from within player Settlements.
  • Game Modes reward players with items and equipment that are exclusive to the mode and cannot be obtained anywhere else.

New World Game Modes




War is a 50 vs 50 PvP game mode and is the deciding factor for which Factions control the various territories of Aeternum.



Invasions involve the defense of player Settlements and Forts against the encroaching forces of the Corrupted.

Outpost Rush


Outpost Rush is a combination PvPvE game mode, pitting two teams of 20 players against each other for control of the mysterious Nauthynos Island.
