New World Update 4.0.2: Legacy of Crassus Patch Notes and More

The immersive world of Aeternum is set to evolve once again with the latest update to the popular MMORPG, New World. Titled Legacy of Crassus, this update promises to bring a fresh wave of excitement and challenges to players from January 10 through January 23.

The highlight of the update is the menacing presence of General Crassus and his monstrous captains. As they threaten to engulf the land in Roman tyranny, players are called upon to banish these formidable foes.

Successfully overcoming these challenges offers players the chance to earn unique event-specific, daily rewards. Areas like Brightwood, Weavers Fen, Mourningdale, Ebonscale Reach, and Edengrove will become pivotal battlegrounds where players can earn Cyclops Statuette Housing Items, up-leveled Named Gear, and more.

The shadow of Roman tyranny creeps ever closer to consuming Aeternum on January 10 through 23. Banish General Crassus’s monstrous captains for new event-specific, daily rewards. Players brave enough to tear down the banners of the Republic in Brightwood, Weavers Fen, Mourningdale, Ebonscale Reach, and Edengrove can earn Cyclops Statuette Housing Items, up-leveled Named Gear, and more.


In a ravaged and uncertain place like Aeternum, it is rare to find one fully committed to honor and loyalty. If you walk the warrior’s path, visit the Store for new Ronin’s Shadow items. Which skins and emotes will you add to your collection?
