Choose your allegiance!

Amazon's new MMORPG, New World, is finally here. One aspect that strikes vast similarities to World of Warcraft is the Factions you'll be able to pick and choose from.

Players can side with a particular faction, but never fear, your allegiance isn't forever. Every 120 days, players will be able to change it.

But, with such a large amount of time in between, you want to make sure you pick the right one.

Here are all New World Factions and the best one to choose.

All New World Factions

Similar to the Horde and Alliance, New World offers player's three different Factions that they'll get to choose from at a certain point along the way into the main-story.

They're dictated by the colors they represent on the map, and you'll be able to choose from either the Syndicate, Marauders or the Covenant.

Here's an official description of each.

Syndicate - The Syndicate is a secretive organization of boundless guile and intellect in search of forbidden knowledge to usher in a new age of enlightenment.

Marauders - The Marauders are a ruthless military force bent on establishing a free nation where anyone with the strength to do so can prosper and profit.

Covenant -The Covenant is a fanatical order that has charged itself with cleansing the land of heretics and defilers so that its true holy nature can flourish and justice can be restored.

New World Faction Differences: Which one should you choose?

Amazon Game Studios doesn't really make the choice make it or break it when it comes to the Faction you align yourself with while playing New World.

The only differences we've noticed so far are the following.

  • Color of Faction gear
  • Faction gear
  • Company's
  • Quests

This is combined with the territory controlled on the map that the Faction's can wage war over, and if you're just loading up into a server for the first time, it may be a good idea to go with the one that has the most land at the moment.

But, the amount of area controlled by a Faction can change at any given moment. This is due to New World's war system, which you may be involved in the higher level you obtain.

So, at the end of the day, the choice is really up to you! But, be careful when choosing, as you'll be locked into a Faction for at least 120 days at the onset.
