As New World moves ever closer to its late August release date, eager fans are already planning out their journey across Aeternum by thinking about which faction to choose or how to build their character. A crucial part of the latter is knowing what the max level or level cap your characters can reach might be.
New World might try to carve its own spot within the MMORPG genre, but does borrow some genre staples, max level included. As you complete quests, defeat enemies and interact with the world, your characters gain experience, which sees them leveling up. Do that enough times and you'll eventually hit the game's level cap.
New World's max level seems to be 60, at least from the footage shown so far, which should hopefully make for a lengthy adventure. Whether or not that will change when the game launches remains to be seen.
Those players who're trying out the closed beta might be wondering about New World's pre-launch level cap. Since the beta hasn't been available for too long, it's difficult to say what the max attainable level is, but it wouldn't surprise us if it would be lower than the full game's 60.
On the way to New World's level cap, you'll gain attribute points which you can use to define your character's build. Each of its five stats grant you bonuses when using specific weapon types, letting you specialize.
At max level, powerful recipes and a batch of endgame content should also become available. We'll keep you posted, should we learn more about the subject.
