New World has a bit of reputation now. Apart from being a pretty decent game by the ever-growing conglomerate Amazon. But more importantly, the state of its servers. Since launch, the New World Servers have been – and this might be putting it lightly – a bit wobbly. They’ve been inconsistent and a general failure. That being said, developers are working on it. But it might just be too little too late, considering the drop in players.

But more recently, New World was down altogether as part of a maintenance update. The maintenance was to last for approximately three hours from 6 AM PT/ 3 PM CET. So if you were worried about an issue on your end, then don’t.

New World Update

As part of this maintenance fix, there were three areas that were focused on.

  • a rare server crash
  • a bug that has caused crowded combat
  • occurrences of time skipping ahead

Despite this, a whole lot of players are unsatisfied. They’re tired of the constant problems arising from the game. With many people dropping it altogether because there were just too many problems. If this continues, New World will just end up being another example to the games industry. An example that releasing unfinished games, despite the hype and build-up, is not a viable marketing ploy long-term.

With many players expressing their dismay for the state of the game. Saying that it’s more akin to an Early Access game. Which would be fine, if it was sold and marketed as an Early Access game. Instead, developers assured and promised players and finished and complete product.
