Heads Up - Amazon Emailing - New World Deluxe Edition - To People Who Preordered in 2017, YMMV

+33 Deal Score

I saw an email from amazon about 30 minutes ago saying: that I pre-ordered New World deluxe edition, the game comes out tomorrow, and they gave me my Steam key. I was completely dumbfounded since I could not remember buying this game. It turns out that a slickdeal post from 2017 got people the game for FREE. 4 years later and the game is finally coming out. The Deluxe edition is being sold for $50

If anyone else is getting steam codes for this game its because of this thread:

me too! Thanks for the PSU. I likely would not have seen it buried in all of the amazon emails.

I pre-ordered a few copies from that, but looks like they are only sending one key. Good deal nonetheless

I got my email and went back to the archived deal post from 2016 to see if you could post in it but couldn't. It is pretty crazy they're still sending keys out.

This statement is pretty crazy:

On July 20, 2021, the game was launched as a closed beta. The following day, it was reported that many high-end Nvidia RTX 3090 graphics cards manufactured by EVGA were bricked while running the game. It was theorized that the absence of an FPS limit for menu screens in the game caused the GPUs to render more than 9000 frames per second at full load (while most gaming computers run at below 240 frames per second), while fail-safes in the cards failed to prevent damage. In response, Amazon said that it would implement an FPS limit in the menu screens, while maintaining that the game itself had not damaged the cards.[16][17][18][19] Jason Langevin, a tech YouTuber (popularly known as JayzTwoCents) who first reported the issue, reported that other GPUs including the RTX 3080 Ti and various AMD GPUs were affected, and also reported that EVGA would replace all RTX 3090 GPUs bricked by the game at no cost. Langevin also investigated further by running an EVGA RTX 3090 and an MSi RTX 3090 and found that while the MSi GPU did not cross its rated power limit, the EVGA GPU went 20% above the limit.[20][21][22]

i had heard the EVGA cards were getting burnt out due to poor soldering. makes sense why they opted to replace all the cards for free because they knew it was their own defect.
