New World: Make a Name for Yourself with New Leaderboards Feature in Update 1.8.2

Update 1.8.2
Update 1.8.2 Amazon Game Studios

Update 1.8.2 for the open-world MMORPG New World is special because it introduces a new feature to let you carve your name into the history of Aeternum.

The Leaderboards are now available in New World, a welcome addition for competitive players. Leaderboards have different sections, including:

  • Vs. Environment
  • Vs. Players
  • Faction War
  • Trade Skills

There are weekly, monthly, and quarterly categories as well. In the weekly Mutated Expeditions, for example, you will be ranked based on the maximum score or clear time. Finishing at the top of these Leaderboards awards you with some skins and titles.

While most categories are now in effect, the “Open World Kills” Leaderboard has been disabled temporarily until the developers have resolved an issue with it.

Update 1.8.2 also made other changes to the game. For instance, if you’re struggling to find enough Juniper Berries, you might be ecstatic to know that their drop rate is increased from 50% to 100% per loot drop.
