Amazon Games, the gaming division of e-commerce giant Amazon, is working on expanding the audience for its flagship MMO New World.
In addition to this, the company is also striking publishing deals with other game developers to release their competing MMOs.
Amazon’s latest publishing agreement is with NCSoft for the release of their upcoming MMO Throne and Liberty. Amazon will publish the game in North and South America, Europe, and Japan, but not in Korea.
Throne and Liberty is one of the most highly anticipated MMOs due to NCSoft’s reputation for creating some of the most popular and longest-running online games in the world.
According to Amazon Games Vice President, Christoph Hartmann, publishing games that grow over time remains a critical part of their strategy.
He also emphasized delivering games of the highest quality from the world’s most talented developers as a cornerstone of their business.
After learning a lot about publishing and managing successful live-service games on a global scale over the past year, Amazon is confident that they can bring Throne and Liberty players an incredible experience at launch.
Throne and Liberty is set to provide players with a story-driven adventure and action combat experience. The game will feature both PvP and PvE action in a world that has constantly shifting geographical and environmental features that change the course of play.
Players will be able to transform into animals that allow them to fly or explore the oceans. They will also be able to trigger environmental effects such as eclipses and storms that can turn the tide of battles.
What sets Throne and Liberty apart is that it has been in development for a long time and was initially meant to be a new game in the Lineage series called Lineage Eternal. NCSoft released Lineage in 1998, and Lineage Eternal was announced in 2011. However, development struggled, and in 2022, NCSoft decided to scrap the Lineage connection entirely and create something new.
While Amazon is still trying to establish itself with New World, it seems to be succeeding as a publisher of other companies’ games.
Throne and Liberty will be the second Korean MMO that Amazon has brought to the West, alongside Smilegate’s MMO Lost Ark. Amazon is also publishing Bandai Namco’s action-RPG Blue Protocol and the next Tomb Raider game.
There is no official release date for Throne and Liberty yet, but gamers can get a closer look at what the game has to offer by visiting the tl.plaync.com website. Screenshots of the game are also available on the site.

The most recent addition to its publishing lineup is NCSoft’s Throne and Liberty, a highly anticipated game that promises to offer players a story-driven adventure and action combat experience.
Although Throne and Liberty have been in development for a long time, it has undergone significant changes, including a name change and the removal of its connection to the Lineage series.
Despite this, Amazon is confident that it can deliver a high-quality game to players at launch.
