New World: Patch Notes (October 2021)

Want to know what has changed in New World? Check out our patch notes!

New World recently has become one of the fastest-growing MMORPGs on Steam, quickly surpassing Valheim as the largest Steam launch in the history of the platform.

All in all, New World is a massive game with a ton on offer, from PVE to PVP quests, game modes, and even dungeons for players to explore for epic loot.

Players can also create and customize their characters to limitless freedom thanks to a class system that allows them to respec and swap out weapons at the drop of a button. There's also a ton of crafting and a trading system for those who want to dominate the market.

However, there's a lot that needs to be fixed and is being fixed. That said, here's all of the recent patch notes for the game listed below.

New World Update: 1.0.1

GENERAL

We've implemented the groundwork for the character server transfer, and you may see elements of that work in the in-game store. We're continuing to work on this feature, and will have more information on how the system works later this week when we release server transfers.

WAR

Changed turret projectiles in War from physical projectiles to use hitscan detection. This should help performance in War, with fewer objects being spawned in the world.

AFK PREVENTION

In an effort to ensure players can’t stay AFK, especially in higher population servers, we’ve made the following adjustments to the AFK prevention system.

  • Added additional AFK prevention to ensure players cannot fool the existing system with simulated mouse movement.
  • Shortened the AFK warning message from 20mins to 15mins.
  • Shortened the AFK disconnect from 25mins to 20mins.

WORLD QUEUE

We added a confirmation screen when a player attempts to leave the queue for a world, asking the player to confirm if they’re intending to leave the queue. This should help ensure nobody accidentally leaves the queue and misses out on their spot in line.

BUG FIXES:

GENERAL FIXES

  • Fixed a rare issue causing the interact key to not properly function on various objects in the world.
  • Fixed an issue causing the barrel to not appear in “Pirate Stance” emote.

  • Fixed a bug where interrupting the fast travel animation may cause the player’s character to become stuck inside of a house.
  • Fixed an issue in Territory Standing rewards where some localized text was missing.
  • Fixed an issue where players are asked to claim achievement titles multiple times after logging back into the game, despite already having claimed the rewards.
  • Fixed an issue causing leg animations to freeze.

  • Fixed a rare issue where players could enter state where they could not be hit by most attacks.
  • Fixed an issue where certain item containers could be looted infinitely.
