New World is installing the first major patch today. This update led to maintenance work and a corresponding server down. This maintenance was scheduled for 4 hours but was extended due to technical problems.
What kind of maintenance is this? The maintenance on 6 October is due to the new update. Among other things, patch 1.0.1 brings adjustments to the AFK timer and the queues.
How long will the maintenance last? Originally, the maintenance was scheduled for 4 hours and was supposed to run from 12:00 to 16:00. After a short time, the maintenance was extended by one hour.
Most recently, community manager Tosch spoke out in the official forum and explained that there were technical difficulties. The maintenance work will therefore be extended by another 2 hours.
Unfortunately, we are experiencing some technical difficulties and have to extend the maintenance work by two hours. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and support. We will update the post as soon as there is more news.
The servers will therefore return at 19:00 at the earliest. As the maintenance affects all servers worldwide, you currently have no chance to play New World.
