New World Update 1.6.5 Reactivates Instanced Wars, Patch Notes Here

New World Update 1.3.4
New World Amazon Game Studios

 

New World's recent update went live yesterday. Update 1.6.5 is mostly focused on bug fixes and improvements. It also reactivates Instanced Wars and makes technical improvements to the Group Finder feature.

Players can no longer reach unintended areas in the Alluvium Marl boss fight arena as the developer has adjusted the collision. An issue in the invite phase will force the game to reschedule Wars.

You can read the patch notes below:
