The latest update for New World is here. Update 1.0.2 implemented adjustments to faction missions and plenty of bug fixes. According to the developers, it also lays the groundwork for the upcoming server transfer feature.

Tweaks to Faction Missions

Developers adjusted faction missions that affected Influence gain over time. This will require more effort to turn an uncontrolled territory into a vulnerable state, allowing rival factions to vie for control through War Declaration.

This change was done because of a bug responsible for multiplying the Influence of attacking factions much faster than what was intended.

To keep things more balanced, the decrease in Influence over time for defending factions has been completely removed.

Bug Fixes

Update 1.0.2 has fixed quite a lot of bugs. For instance, the issue where you could respawn as a corpse has been fixed. In addition, those who were penalized by the game’s Easy Anti-Cheat system will now be given a clear explanation as to why they received the penalty.

For AI fixes, those who were farming EXP at the Boarsholm POI in the Restless Shores will probably be sad to know that the spawn rate of Boars has been corrected. This means that the number of Boars will not be the same before the update.

Patch Highlights
