New World had an impressive launch, with the MMO hitting 500,000 concurrent players on its opening day. As Amazon Games production continues captivating fans, many have wondered how to change servers.
Players have many different servers to choose from, spread across five different regions. This guide specifies details on transferring servers in New World and lays out a step-by-step path on how to switch.
New World: How To Transfer Servers
Details on Servers
In New World, servers are known as Worlds. There are many different worlds located across five different regions: Australia, South America, Central Europe, US West, and US East. These individual servers are collected together into world sets.
Within its first two weeks after launching, Amazon Game Studios is currently allowing players to transfer from one server to another completely free. When shifting servers, players will need to make a new character. It's important to note that players can only have one character associated with a certain world set.
Steps For Changing Servers
Here's how to migrate servers:
- Run New World.
- At the bottom of the menu, click 'Continue'.
- Press the 'create new character' option.
- You will be given a host of worlds to choose from - click your preferred server.
- After cycling through the steps, press 'I Understand'.
- Now you can create your own character for that server.
In their launch day update, Amazon Games Studios has assured fans that they are going to expand its list of servers:
All regions are now live! It has been an unbelievable 24 hours and the support for New World that we’ve seen so far has been incredible. We understand that some players are experiencing lengthy queue times and we are working hard on a few things to help address these issues. We are continuing to stand up additional servers and will expand the capacity of our existing servers once we have properly tested these changes.
Our sole focus right now is to get everyone logging in and playing quickly. To ensure everyone can find an open world now, while also finding a home in Aeternum with their community long-term, we’ll offer an opportunity in the next two weeks for all players to relocate their characters to a new server of their choice at no cost. We appreciate your patience as the New World community grows and encourage you to solidify your long-term server plans for you and your Company.
Thanks for your support! We can’t wait to see you in Aeternum.
