New Dawn test version available on TapTap
On paper, the New Dawn mobile game has it all. An open-world sandbox title, it borrows a lot from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, both in its aesthetics and in its gameplay mechanics. But what is it really? Let’s go back together to our first impressions of the New Dawn test version.
An ambitious title for a young studio
Coming out of nowhere, New Dawn is an RPG developed by Seasun Corporation, a young studio that has just celebrated its first anniversary. After 3 modestly successful games, this is their most ambitious game and this one just might get the hype going. Indeed, the studio has just made available to players around the world a New Dawn test version that we just tried for you.
In this teaser of the New Dawn test, we learn that we will have to fight against the forces of demon-lordan evil being who, like Sauron or Voldemort, waited for long years for the right moment to return.
Our impressions of the New Dawn test version
To begin with, the heart of the game is very similar to what we were able to discover in the last Zelda. We find the weapon durabilitythe resource harvest with different tools, craft of objects as well as the system of receipts.
However, New Dawn also incorporates building features, which, although the setting is totally different, is not unlike the gameplay of Valheim. the building system is also one of the black points of this test version of New Dawn which you can play. Indeed, it is very complicated to place an element in a specific place, even using the advanced construction mode. A free camera would probably solve this problem.
Visually, we must admit that although it is only a test version of New Dawn, the game is beautiful. I haven’t been able to visit all the different environments yet, but the exploration promises to be full of surprises. However, it will be necessary to adjust the graphic quality on certain devices to ensure fluidity. For my part, I tested the game in medium quality, but in 60 frames per second.
In the end, this New Dawn test version suggest a game full of good ideas picked up everywhere. Although not without flaws, it is a game promising the evolution of which will have to be monitored. Moreover, co-op features up to 7 are already planned.
We do not have no release date yet precise, but the title should see the light of day in 2022. Until then, you can test New Dawn by downloading it on TapTap. And if you want to discover other games of this genre, I redirect you to our top of the best mobile RPGs.
