New World: Latest PTR Update Attempts to Fix the “Random Respawn” Option in OPR

Are you a fan of the Outpost Rush (OPR) in New World? If so, have you ever been in a situation where you were offered the choice to respawn in a random place, but when you clicked on it, nothing happened? That is an issue this latest PTR patch tries to fix.

The issue in question happens when you die in OPR. Once you’re about to respawn, the game gives you the option to spawn at a “random” location but nothing actually happens when you click on it. What’s worse is that the system deems you as AFK because you were not able to get back into action, which can be quite annoying.

Amazon Game Studios tries to resolve this issue in the most recent PTR update. The patch notes state that this is a “speculative” fix, meaning the issue might still occur in Outpost Rush. If you run into the same problem again, report it to the AGS dev team immediately.

In addition, the latest PTR patch resolved a number of quest issues. For instance, the longstanding issue with bear spawns in the Bear Co-Habitation quest has finally been addressed. The AGS team removed the bottleneck by increasing the number of bears that spawn in the area.
