How to form a company in New World

New World is heavily driven by its PvP content, and the best way to take advantage of all it has to offer is by forming a company. These function much like guilds do in other games, as they’re essentially groups of players that work together to accomplish a variety of tasks.

Forming a company in New World is a straightforward process, although there are a few things you’ll need to knock out first. If you’re hoping to start your own company and take control of Aeternum’s sprawling map, here’s what you need to know.

What is a company in New World

Companies are player-formed groups that are associated with one of three factions in New World — Marauders, Syndicate, or Covenant. You can only join a company with players in the same faction as you, making it imperative that you plan ahead with your friends. If one of you joins the wrong faction, they’ll need to switch — an option that’s only available a few times per year.

Companies can then take part in a variety of PvP content, such as declaring war on another settlement or participating in Outpost Rush battles. In short, joining or creating a company allows you to take full advantage of all the PvP options in New World, and you should try to become part of one as soon as possible.

All three factions in New World.

How to form a company in New World

After tackling the first few quests and running around Aeternum for a few hours, you’ll eventually have the option to form a company. The process itself is incredibly easy, but there are several tasks you’ll need to complete before Amazon Games gives you the chance to become the leader of a company.

Here’s a quick rundown of how to create a company in New World:

  • Play through the main questline until you’re given the option to choose a faction.
  • Join any of the three factions. Take note that only players in the same faction as you can join your soon-to-be-formed company.
  • Open the Main Menu.
  • Select the Company tab on the far left of your screen.
  • Select Create Company. This will give you the option to create a name and banner for your company, then send out invites to any friends who are looking to join.

Creating a company is arguably easier than joining a pre-existing one. To do that, you’ll need to get invited by another player or peruse the Recruitment chat at the bottom left of your screen. Once you get invited, simply press F1 and you’ll join the company.

Now that you’re part of a company, you can check out detailed information about the group by heading back to the Company menu. This will show you a list of all players — and their position — in the company, as well as an overview of your company bank and other regulations.

How to learn the Avada Kedavra curse in Hogwarts Legacy
A wizard casting avada kedavra.

Perhaps the most notorious spell in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the most dangerous and evil of the unforgivable curses: Avada Kedavra. Hogwarts Legacy doesn't shy away from letting your custom student learn these unforgivable curses, in addition to the dozens of other spells in the game, up to and including the curse that would eventually be used by the Dark Lord himself so often.

Just like in the source material, Avada Kedavra is an instant-kill attack, which is naturally going to be an immensely powerful tool in your spellbook. Still, being such a dangerous curse, it isn't one you'll pick up in your normal studies. If you're ready to live with the consequences of casting this unforgivable curse, here's how to learn Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy. Of course, there is no real morality system in the game, so any damage to your soul will only happen in real life.

How to start the Burning Shores DLC in Horizon Forbidden West
Aloy flying.

Aloy's adventure wasn't fully concluded at the end of Horizon Forbidden West, but you don't have to wait for the third game to continue her journey. With the Burning Shores DLC, a brand new region is unlocked. This area is home to the Quen tribe and brings in a new character named Seyka to accompany Aloy on a new quest. Of course, there will also be tons of sidequests, new machines to hunt, and sights to see. If you're interested in exploring this new and dangerous region, there are some requirements you should know about that could prevent you from jumping in as quickly as you think. Here's everything you need to know about how to start the Burning Shores DLC in Horizon Forbidden West.
How to start the Burning Shores DLC

The major requirement for accessing the new content (outside of purchasing it, of course) is that this takes place after the main campaign, unlike the DLC for the first game that could be accessed in the middle of the story. This means that you need to have gotten through all main story missions ending in "Singularity." Your save must be at this point to access the DLC. If you finished the game and started a New Game + run, but haven't gotten back up to that point, you won't be able to start the DLC until you get there again. The final mission of the game has a recommended level of 35, while the first mission of Burning Shores is 38, so you may want to do some side activities beforehand if you are underleveled.

Move over, Wordle: The New York Times has a new puzzle game
top tech stories of the week 7 24 2015 new york times starbucks deal

The New York Times has introduced the next title coming to its Games catalog following Wordle's continued success -- and it's all about math. Digits has players adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing numbers. You can play its beta for free online right now. 
In Digits, players are presented with a target number that they need to match. Players are given six numbers and have the ability to add, subtract, multiply, or divide them to get as close to the target as they can. Not every number needs to be used, though, so this game should put your math skills to the test as you combine numbers and try to make the right equations to get as close to the target number as possible.

Players will get a five-star rating if they match the target number exactly, a three-star rating if they get within 10 of the target, and a one-star rating if they can get within 25 of the target number. Currently, players are also able to access five different puzzles with increasingly larger numbers as well.  I solved today's puzzle and found it to be an enjoyable number-based game that should appeal to inquisitive minds that like puzzle games such as Threes or other The New York Times titles like Wordle and Spelling Bee.
In an article unveiling Digits and detailing The New York Time Games team's process to game development, The Times says the team will use this free beta to fix bugs and assess if it's worth moving into a more active development phase "where the game is coded and the designs are finalized." So play Digits while you can, as The New York Times may move on from the project if it doesn't get the response it is hoping for. 
Digits' beta is available to play for free now on The New York Times Games' website
