The newly launched MMO game ‘New World’ by Amazon Games is in the news lately. The game recently became the most played game on steam in 2021 and is loved by all alike. Just like any other MMORPG game, New World also offers you to choose factions or clans for you to join and play. In this blog, we’ll tell you more about how you can choose, select, and change to a different faction in the New World.
I. What are the 3 Different Factions in New World to Choose From?
A faction, in general, helps define and set your role in accordance with the story or ideology of the game. In New World, a faction binds you with other players for a singular cause in the game. Furthermore, these factions let you visit certain hub areas and also play a role in selecting a character you wish to play in the game.
The main goal of a faction in New World is to govern the continent. Each Faction in the game strives to capture as much territory as possible. These territories will give additional buffs to the Faction under which they fall. Thus implying an upper hand when it comes to combat and taxes in the acquired territory.
However, the option for you to choose a faction unlocks only after you achieve level 10 in New World. There are a total of three different types of factions available in New World for you to play:
- The Syndicate: A secret organization that wants to create enlightenment through forbidden knowledge.
- The Covenant: A zealous faction determined to promote holiness by removing heretics.
- The Marauders: A military faction devoted to creating freedom through conquest.
II. How to Change Factions in New World
You can only change your Faction in New World after 120 days past you chose the current Faction you’re in. However, the game doesn’t allow you to switch to the strongest faction as per your game.
Follow these steps to change your Faction in New World:
- Open In-Game menu or Press K on your Keyboard.
- Click on the Character Tab
- Head over to the Bio under the Character Tab
- Click on Change Faction
- Select the Faction the game let’s you join
Note that you won’t be able to join a Faction that is dominant in your world. A faction controlling most of the territories in your world is considered to be dominant. Moreover, changing your faction in New World will also reset your faction rank and tokens.
III. Which one is the Best & Strongest Faction to Join in New World
Planning to join the dominant faction in your world? Well, the idea might just be the best for you! Joining a larger faction that controls more territories than any other faction can give you a better understanding of faction buffs. It helps you grasp how things work in a faction and whether buffs contribute a change to your playstyle.
Currently, The Syndicate is the strongest and the most dominant faction among the three factions available in New World. In the second position lies Marauders, and the Covenant at last. You can check out the latest ranking and standings through the official leaderboard here.
