Great news for New World players! The Winter Convergence is extended until January 21. Originally set to end tomorrow, the extension means two more weeks of fun. In addition, for the period January 21 to January 25, all Winter Convergence giveaway items are going to be available.

So why the extension? According to a post, it's because of the "fantastic turnout" of the event. Exciting as the additional time offers, keep in mind that once the event ends any unopened presents and unused event tokens will disappear.

The Winter Convergence is marked by the increased snowfall along with the appearance of the Northern Lights in the sky. This is considered as a period of dichotomy and duality as the Winter Wanderer and Winter Warrior come to the land. The icy winds and the Winter Wanderer bring with them a lot of new things and even a delightful “present gifting” emote. The event started on December 16 and was initially set to end on January 11.

Some of the activities that players can enjoy during this event include:

  • The Convergence Spirit
    • The Convergence Spirit is a special Town Project where players need to complete special Town Project Quests to upgrade each Settlements Tree of Light and get improved daily rewards.
    • Each day, the first three interactions with the Tree of Light in settlements grant presents that also grant a lockbox with a gift of appreciation for participating in the festivities.
    • Level 60 players can also get Diamond Gypsum from their first three interactions with the Tree of Light in settlements which is enough to form a Gypsum Orb and can be used to increase a specific item’s Expertise.
  • Lost Present Recovery
    • Located throughout the world are Lost Presents to be recovered and turned in for Winter Tokens at the Winter Village Holiday Huts.
  • ​Winter Convergence Quests
    • Seven new quests round out the story for the Winter Convergence event.
    • The Questline begins at level 15 and concludes at level 60.
  • Gleamite Collecting
    • Gleamite Showers are a random and dynamic event that occurs at night throughout Aeternum.
    • Keep your eyes and ears open as you search for locations where the showers are most prevalent.
    • Exchange the harvested crystals for Winter tokens at the Winter Village Holiday Huts.
