New World dev highlights how Town Criers brought players news during open beta

In a talk at this year’s Develop: Brighton conference about ‘active listening’ and how New World evolved into an ‘MMO success story’, Kaszynski touches on how the open beta (which ran from September 9 to 12) revealed to the devs “all of the other new and exciting ways the players were using our game”. The test “let us see all the ways that people were using their agency”, Kaszynski explains. “One of my favourites was this group [who] created a company called the Town Criers, and the Town Criers literally got the news of the day and then went to the different zones, the different settlements, and yelled in the middle of the town what was going on.To get more news about safe new world gold, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

“What wars were coming up; when invasions were happening; where there were iron nodes that people hadn’t found yet. They were just so excited to be these town criers, and it was really fun and really cool to see.”This comes as part of a wider discussion at the talk about how the approach the studio took towards its rollout of New World’s betas and other tests by drawing on particular types of feedback and ‘active listening’ helped the devs gather valuable information about how players were taking to New World. This then gave them a lot of useful insight into what players enjoyed, what was surprising, and what needed more work before launch.

During the conference, Kaszynski also spoke about why the New World devs didn’t want it to be like every other MMORPG, which you can read about at that link.
