New World, Amazon’s MMORPG, has now been officially released, and Amazon is looking to offer some extra DLC via Prime Gaming. Prime Gaming, a service from Amazon, offers players in-game content for several popular games.
The service is included with the Amazon Prime subscription and also provides a free monthly channel subscription on Twitch. For New World, players will have access to various free, exclusive items for a limited time.

With Prime Gaming, players will be able to earn both cosmetic items and currency. The first round of DLC will offer two Pirate Packs.
The first Pack will be available from September 28th to November 1st. The second Pack will be available from October 12th to November 1st. Amazon is also likely to offer more free content in the coming future.
Here is what is included in the first two Pirate Packs.
First Pirate Pack (September 28 – November 1)

- 5,000 Marks of Fortune (premium in-game currency)
Second Pirate Pack (October 12 – November 1)

Aside from the currencies, the items are purely cosmetic and do not affect gameplay.
