After a short briefing provided by Amazon Games, New World’s EU servers have gone down for short maintenance. If I could guess what the change is, I would assume that the developer wants to increase the player capacity. Recent connections have started resulting in a slightly different error. But that’s just me. The important part is that the servers are down and do not allow players to join the game.
We will be restarting all worlds in the EU Central server (except Baltia, Tanje, Amenti, Ravenal, Utgard, Albraca, Hellheim, Hades) at 1:30 AM PT (10:30 CEST) to solve server stability issues.
We expect downtime to be ~15 minutes.

We’re more than sure the developers are currently working to resolve the situation and patch things up as soon as possible.
