New World, the role-playing MMO game by Amazon, recently received Update 1.6.2. It added new content to the game and fixed several bugs related to UI, UX, World Experience, and Social.

The Barnacles & Black Powder Expedition has been added to the game, along with a new Mutation set. Confirmation messages when rebinding keys to the space bar have been improved. The bug where Open World combat will override Expedition music has been addressed.

  • Barnacles & Black Powder
  • Notable Fixes
    • Fixed an issue that caused PvP Arenas and other modes to count toward Expedition run limits.
    • Fixed an issue that caused Open World combat music to override Expedition music.
  • Notable Fixes
    • Fixed a handful of rare server crashes and errors.
    • Fixed an issue that caused World Transfer conditions to falsely report as not met. Players should now be able to use World Transfer tokens if all conditions are truly met.

    • Both World and Regional transfers now have a 3-day (72-hour) cooldown after use. We will continue to monitor the results of this change to see if further adjustments are necessary.
