New World Amazon Game Studios

New World recently received a new update that brought changes and bug fixes. One of the biggest changes is the removal of the Everfall starting beach. This change is to limit the spawning of new players to only three locations. This also increases the chance of players to start the game with others. While it is a decent change, it gives players the option to make or join a party.

The developers also fixed an issue where the world time would skip ahead or lag behind, which could cause issues across the world. Issues including AI not spawning, losing houses in Cutlass Keys, and rare server crashes have been resolved as well.
