New World Amazon Game Studios

New World recently received an update, Into the Void, which adds new content and bug fixes. The update has introduced a new weapon called the Void Gauntlet. This weapon scales on both Intelligence and Focus, which makes it strong if players pair it with magical weapons. The gauntlet will also have two weapon mastery trees that allow players to use it in different ways.

The developers have updated the streamer mode, and in this update, players can now block company invites, group invites, friend invites, coin transfer, trade requests, duel requests, and chat direct messages. Additionally, players who send invites to others using the streamer mode will get a notification stating that the message was blocked. The developers have also fixed an issue where the AI could get pushed into invalid areas, which would kill them.
