New World February PTR
New World February PTR Amazon Game Studios

New World, the MMO role-playing game by Amazon Game Studios, received a small patch recently. Update 1.6.6 is solely focused on bug fixes and improvements, specifically addressing rare server crash issues and problems in combat, world experience, and expeditions. No new content or features are added, however.

The bug where fast travel will sometimes fail is addressed, and interacting with bed housing items will now play correct animations. Colors on stained glass housing items are now displayed accurately.

Check out the complete changelog below.

  • Speculative fix for rare cases when a player character dies but isn’t presented with a respawn screen.
  • Fixed an issue with game mode scoreboards not displaying for players who join an in-progress War or Invasion.
  • Fixed an issue that caused erroneous invite messages for players who signed up for a War or Invasion at the same time a server crash occurred.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent Nereid’s encounter from starting in the Barnacles & Black Powder expedition.
  • Fixed an unintended cube from appearing when next to the Celestial Rabbit house pet.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from interacting with one side of a bed housing item.
  • Stained glass housing items will now properly display colors.
  • Fixed an issue that caused event lore notes associated with Summer Villages to linger in the world after the seasonal event ended.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Medleyfaire fishing pole rewards from functioning after the seasonal event ended.
  • Fixed an issue where new characters would sometimes be erroneously placed into a standby queue even if there was ample capacity in the world to accommodate them.
  • Fixed an animation issue when interacting with the bed housing item.
  • Fixed an issue that caused fast travel to occasionally fail.
  • Fixed a rare server crash.
