Final Release Eligibility

LegionCM

Guys, if I signed up for the beta but didn't preorder, but ended up getting the email for the testing, will I be able to play the game once it releases? Or do I have to buy it then when it comes out?

You will need to purchase the game when it officially releases next year.

Steam says the Density test will last until Monday?

Cant see the Density test on in my steam library

NW_Mugsymania

I found it but I’m confused, on steam it says this test with last until Monday?

As you know, currently New World has a Density Test going on to put a strain on our servers in preparation for the upcoming August preview event.

We were unclear about when the test would end because we didn't know what it would take to achieve our testing goals. We will be announcing details on when it will end today after 4pm PT.

Thanks for your support during this test!

Density Test Key

LegionCM

Hey all,

I just received an email about a key for the density test and am downloading it now. Seems like the test started July 30th and I only got the key on the last day? Is this a one day thing or can I keep testing playing outside the 1PST-4PST window today?

As you know, currently New World has a Density Test going on to put a strain on our servers in preparation for the upcoming August preview event.

At the start of the test, Alpha Testers, who were already playing on Steam with us, and all Pre-order customers were invited to join. This gave us a major concurrency spike on Thursday night. Then on Friday, we invited a wave of Beta Test signups to give us another big wave Friday night, and finally we invited even more Beta Testers early this morning to continue adding to the tester pool.

We were unclear about when the test would end because we didn't know what it would take to achieve our testing goals. We will be announcing details on when it will end today after 4pm PT.

Hope this answer/non-answer is at least helpful. Thanks for your support during this test! Everyone has been extremely supportive and helpful and we are very grateful.

So why are there numbers on my screen?

LegionCM

So what looks like a CD key is repeated over and over on my screen as I play.....is that normal or?

Can I post a pic without being giga banned?

This is a watermark. Everyone has a unique code on their gameplay so that when something leaks we have all the information needed to remove them from the game.

Process for reporting all the NDA breakers on steam community content?

LegionCM

It's flooded with these people just posting screenshots or youtube videos of gameplay with their hashed IDs all over the screen.

Is there a process to reporting all of them so we get some sort of ban / lock on their accounts?

We have people on leak patrol. We won't be able to catch everyone but we are out there. We're about to pull the curtain back on Aug 25th for the Preview Event and everyone will see what New World is all about at that point.

Am I the only one who's a bit dissapointed with the times the density test is going to be?

LegionCM

For record, I live in the UK and work full time, the first one is starting at 10pm, the day after is starting at 2am, and next at 9pm which is a little more reasonable, but like, everywhere else in EU and further west it's going to be even later in the night, how are they supposed to test density when half of the people outside the US will be sleeping?

For the record this isn't me dissing the game or anything like that, just the times selected feel a bit stupid for what's supposed to be testing the server limits

You can log in at any point. Those are just windows of time we would like people to jump in for higher density moments.

[source]

Does the NDA also mean we shouldn't be talking about our experience in the game or is it only for streaming/video publishing?

LegionCM

The only place you can currently discuss the game is in our Official Forums. Talking about or showing your gameplay outside of that is a violation of the NDA.

DCd and losing quest progress

NW_Mugsymania

I keep getting DCd during one of the quests before faction selection as I'm running back to the objective. It's one of the objectives where you have to kill mobs in an area and then run back to complete it. Very frustrating, given that the walk is so long. Anyone have this issue, with the progress-loss specifically?

Alchemy and Piracy is the quest.

Please direct your feedback to the official forums at forums.newworld.com

Thought So Far - Vague Cause NDA

NW_Mugsymania
  • The first thing I was worried about the no class system - I love the new way it is. Having the weapons define your character and that creates the talent tree is refreshing and I enjoy it
  • The aesthetics in this game are superb - 10/10 art team
  • Overall, minimal bugs, super surprising for a game early in development
  • I look forward to seeing end-game with the preview, this density test made me really excited for the game, more so than I was. I predict more PVE stuff coming down the pipeline and the delay I think was smart
  • Dont let the hate from the hardcore PVP crowd bring you down, this pvp system they have is good and makes sense - there can be tweaks but i cant go into more
  • Combat - from a tab targeting style to this, well done. Smooth
  • My only complaint is centered around mobs in the world and "going off the beaten path" but I cant really go into it

Overall, this made me more hyped for the game than ever before. I appreciate the experience and glad I stuck to it

Thanks for this feedback.

We believe in New World, we are committed to making it the best it can be. We appreciate that so many folks have supported us. The goal of the August Preview event is to create a moment of full transparency. The Preview event will invite the largest group of players into Aeternum to date. The Preview event will not be under NDA so everyone can lean in, check our progress, share their thoughts and feedback, and we can clear up any misunderstandings around the game.

Our hope if folks will see what we see. A game with incredible potential that needs a bit more work to be great. We are proud of the game we have and the work the team has done but we know we can do better and we are devoted to doing that work and delivering a great game.
