Update: The servers are already down for maintenance.
Earlier today, New World suffered from a nasty bug that has been the culprit for many unjust wars won. People have been abusing that healing bug, which allows you to stay on a point and be healed constantly. Territories have been lost, players have been frustrated, and Amazon Games was pushed to address this issue as soon as possible.
Hence, a new patch is arriving in New World in an hour, but the Amazon Games’ tackle on this exploit is not as sufficient as it should be. Nevertheless, it’s a temporary fix that will most probably be mended to a better and permanent one in the near future.
We are aware of a crouch exploit that has surfaced due to this most recent update. We will be restarting each region individually to pick up a change to mitigate this issue.
Downtime will be approximately 15 minutes long. Please find the restart times for each region below:
We are currently working on a more permanent fix which will be released once we have confirmed that the fix is valid.
