Beginning today at 10 am PT Amazon Games’ hit MMORPG New World is hosting a Steam Free Weekend. This limited-time event allows new players to enjoy New World and the game’s recent content updates for free through Monday, April 11.


After the free weekend ends players can jump in right where they left off by purchasing the Standard or Deluxe editions of the game for 40% off until April 18 at 10 am PT. In-game purchasing will not be available until you purchase the full game (either the Standard or Deluxe edition).

There is currently a free item available for existing players in the in-game store — the Black Bear Pelt Rug Housing Item, which is available to claim for free until April 18! Do note that character creation might not be available on all servers so you might need to try again later on or make a character on a different server.

The fun continues on April 12 as Aeternum welcomes Spring with Rabbit’s Revenge. During this event players can help cull a plague of corrupted rabbits for a chance to earn up to three Diamond Gypsum in loot drops and 5 luck-increasing consumables daily … and there’s even a rumor of a mystical storage chest that may be found in possession of these rabbits.
