More weapons arriving to New World next year

In a recent developer update video, the team discussed the past year for New World, covering a broad range of topics like the game’s launch, bugs and glitches and the Winter Convergence Festival going live on the servers. The development team also shared exciting plans for the game in 2022: new weapons.

According to the developers, the team have been working on new weapons they hope to be made available to players on the Public Test Realm (PTR) next year. The weapons they will be bringing to New World are the Blunderbuss, Great Sword and Daggers.

The Blunderbuss weapon appears to be the first weapon that they’ll be adding soon to New World. The weapon looks to cater to players with “more of a run and gun” playstyle, being “more exciting, more explosive, and more chaotic” than the Musket.

The Great Sword is still under development however, the weapon possesses a “stance switching” ability that will be central to the weapon’s gameplay. The developers are still discussing the inclusion of daggers in the game, alluding that “it’s near the front, but not quite there yet”.

Alongside the daggers, the developers made mention of another shield plus an unannounced weapon that is on the table of weapons that want to see in the game. Outside of these weapons, there has been no word on forthcoming updates or news on other weapons for the game.
