New World recently received its January content update with Expedition Mutators, but players immediately reported numerous bugs which prevented progression. The developers pushed out another patch to resolve the issues with the new January 26 update, which includes a host of bug fixes and performance improvements.

What’s New in The New World January 26 Update

The new update fixed an issue that caused players’ storage sheds to be filled with items that are the same but were not stacking properly. This bug also caused those items to not be used in crafting and players reported missing items as well. This has been corrected and storage and crafting should be behaving normally after the new update.

Players should also be able to access all of the new content from the January update without issues. The new Expedition Mutators update which launched earlier this week was causing crashes and players should now be able to access the activity without issues.

New World January 26 Update Patch Notes

Here are some of the highlights from the new patch:

  • Fixed a bug that caused loot from Elite Chests in Mutated Lazarus Instrumentality Expeditions to not respect a player’s expertise. 
  • Elite Chests will drop loot based on the player’s expertise values in that Mutated Expedition.
  • The Ring of The Forgers Signet was improperly removed from the game and players’ inventories. It is now earnable in-game.

The new update will allow players to earn the Ring of Forgers Signet and access the Expedition Mutators activity without issues. To check out the full list of changes from the new patch, click here.
