New World continues to receive important updates in a bid to recover from its dip in the player base. After a strong start, the game could not keep up its momentum due to balancing issues, bugs, and other problems. With the Winter Convergence Festival addressing a number of issues and introducing new content, the game is back with yet another major update to improve the experience for endgame players.
What’s new in the Expedition Mutator update?
The January Update has graduated from the Public Test Realm (PTR) and is releasing into the main New World game. This update includes a new end-game feature: Expedition Mutators which will change the familiar by augmenting “Normal” and “Named” Enemies found within expeditions, switching the way encounters play out and what strategies players should consider before the battle.
Players can now upgrade individual gear pieces from GS 590 to GS 625, by spending Umbral Shards. There are multiple sources of Umbral shards and players will finally be able to farm endgame gear easily.
