New World won’t let you swim, but you can walk underwater

New World begins with you surviving a shipwreck, so it’s a wee bit surprising that you don’t know the first thing about swimming. Nobody in Aeternum does. It’s surrounded by water and full of rivers and lakes, but you’ll never get to go for a paddle. 

While plenty of MMOs have embraced the life aquatic, there are still a few that like to keep things on dry land, like Star Wars: The Old Republic, which exclusively features bodies of water that only go up to your ankles. And most of New Word’s rivers and ponds are similarly shallow.
