Access to the store is very easy. Open the home screen by pressing "ESC" on your keyboard and find the link in the top menu. Click on this link and you'll immediately see "Featured Listings.
There are currently 7 main product categories:
- Armor skins
- Weapon skins
- Housing items
- Company coats of arms
As you can see, all categories except consumables are cosmetic. Consumables also do not contain any products that could affect the balance of the game and give players a real advantage in combat.
The game allows you to preview the item before buying it. This feature is extremely useful for purchasing emotes, skins, and furniture.
Signs of fortune
Signs of fortune is the only currency that you can use to purchase items in the store. There is currently no information on how to get this currency. But we assume you will be able to buy it with real money.
Your current balance is displayed in the upper right corner of the window. Click the plus icon to buy more characters.
Is New World Pay to win?
We know for sure that Storefront will not turn New World into a pay-to-win game. Not so long ago, the official Twitter account posted this picture explaining what happens to the in-game cash.
The developers say they don't plan to sell any essential items. You will never feel that you cannot enjoy the game without these items. All game content will be available to all players, regardless of their activity in the Store.
The developers also mentioned that they plan to launch a store exclusively with cosmetic items. They will be looking at player feedback and will make any necessary adjustments based on what players think.
Later, developers plan to introduce more "quality of life" items, such as fast travel. But these things won't be something you can't get in the game. All items can be obtained through regular activities.
The storefront will most likely benefit high-level players more than low-level players. This can save players time by allowing them to avoid grinding certain things.
The developers also plan to introduce the Battle Pass - a special program that periodically delivers various items.
