New World: The first player has reached the max level – that’s how long it took
On September 28th the MMO New World was officially released and on October 1st the first players reached level 60. We at Nintendosmash reveal how long it took.
Who was the first to reach the max level? In New World, some players and streamers fought to be the first to reach level 60 and thus set a special record.
The player Larsen declared himself the first player at level 60 in his Livestream. He reached this level on October 1st around 3:00 a.m. German time.
He is celebrating the moment together with his guild and faction and has captured it in a Twitch clip:
Is he really the first player on 60? That cannot be said exactly because there are no official statistics or rankings. However, nobody before Larsen claimed that title. There are no videos on YouTube or Twitch, posts on Twitter or posts in the official reddit.
It is very likely that he was actually the first player to reach the Max level in New World.
How long did it take? Larsen has not published a specific season. However, you can use his live streams to estimate how many hours he has invested:
- On Tuesday he started streaming as soon as the server started and managed the first 2 hours without queuing. After a 40-minute break, he streamed continuously for almost 18 more hours.
- On Wednesday, Larsen streamed about 13 hours without any interruptions or queues.
- Another live stream followed on Thursday for around 23 hours without interruption. There he made the jump to level 60 at the very end.
Larsen will have needed something like 55 hours of play to reach the max level in New World.
According to his guild members, he hardly slept during the run to level 60 and did not use any special tricks, such as other players sacrificing themselves for him in PvP.

If you have missed the neon sign and are stuck in a place, you can also use the “Meow” of your cat. The Meow will also help you find the right path as it triggers the neon sign to glow again or something that will get your attention.
The behavior that they added of the cat is very realistic. If you see water dripping on the floor, you can drink the water from there. You can Meow to find the right path.

The total length of the gameplay is about 7-8 hours if you only play through the story. But if you explore the whole city and interact will all the robots and help them, it can be extended to 10 hours.

Far Cry 6: How to Fish
Far Cry 6 is designed around another huge open world for players to explore. And while the overall theme of the game is once again reclaiming territory from an evil dictator, there are plenty of optional activities you can engage in along the way. This includes Fishing, which is a minigame that almost seems to have become a must-have feature of all modern open-world games these days. In any case, here is how to fish in Far Cry 6 if you want to put down your assault rifle for a moment and spend an afternoon pulling a rope.
Fishing in Far Cry 6
Fishing in Far Cry 6 is unlocked at the beginning of the game as part of the tutoring missions on the first island. Once you have access to the fishing rod, you can go to any body of water, press and hold L1 / LB to open the weapon wheel, select your fishing rod, and then launch it. Then you need to slowly wind the line to attract the fish.
When taking a bite, use the onscreen prompts to move the right analog stick against the way the fish is pulling, while holding down L2 to roll the fish. Everything is quite intuitive.
Your fishing pole can be upgraded by interacting with the tackle box, which is located on the ground where you see the hook icon on your map.
Here you can change your float/lure and upgrade your fishing line and reel. You will need to use them to catch some of the toughest fish in the game, so be sure to use them if you are looking to catch all of them.
