New World server status update: Maintenance schedule and patch notes for crucial crash fix


    There’s bad news if you’re trying to login and play New World on PC, because Amazon has taken the game offline.

    In what has become a weekly tradition, Amazon is performing some New World server maintenance.

    The server maintenance will last around three hours, which means the MMORPG should be back online at 5pm GMT.

    Of course, there’s a chance times could change, so check back for more all the latest updates.

    Needless to say, the downtime is accompanied by an update that fixes one or two issues.

    It’s not as big as some of the recent updates, but it does make a crucial server fix.

    As you can see from the patch notes below, the latest New World update fixes a rare server crash.

    That’s on top of a bug involving crowded combat situations, as well as occurrences of time skipping ahead.

    The full list of New World update patch notes can be seen below.

    New World November 23 patch notes…

    • Reduced occurrences of time skipping days ahead instantly on a world

    • Fixed a bug where some crowded combat situations would lead to players appearing to be frozen and other state could not be conveyed to a user due to excessive bandwidth consumption.

    • Fixed a rare server crash

    New World is a massively-multiplayer role-playing game in which players explore a mysterious island.

    “Explore a thrilling, open-world MMO filled with danger and opportunity where you’ll forge a new destiny for yourself as an adventurer shipwrecked on the supernatural island of Aeternum,” reads the official description.

    “Endless opportunities to fight, forage, and forge await you among the island’s wilderness and ruins.

    “Channel supernatural forces or wield deadly weapons in a classless, real-time combat system, and fight alone, with a small team, or in massed armies for PvE and PvP battles—the choices are all yours.”

    In other news, Amazon has revealed that native controller support isn’t on the cards for New World.

    Instead, the developer recommends using Steam controller support for anybody wishing to use a gamepad.

    “There is no native controller support currently planned for New World. We do, however, encourage you to try the Steam controller support if you wish to play with a controller.”
