Amazon Games' MMORPG New World won't see any major content releases in February, with the team instead looking to focus on delivering as many bug fixes as possible.
The news comes via a New World developer update video, in which different members of the development team discuss a variety of topics, ranging from soon-to-be-added systems like mutators to various technical issues the team is looking to address.
Bug fixes are currently a big priority for Amazon, which is why the game's February update won't include any new content.
"February is just a bug fix month," senior producer Katy Kaszynski said. "There's no major content that is coming with the February release. We have some things that we are focusing on for that to make sure we get a good amount of fixes in and we make a real difference for the players that have been asking for things for a long time."
New World has been crippled on multiple occasions due to various bugs, including multiple instances of gold and item duplication exploits that led to Amazon temporarily disabling the game's entire economy. While most of those issues have been fixed quickly once discovered, there are still a number of issues that are priorities for the team. In addition to fixes for various bugged quests, missing ingredients, and other issues, the team is also looking to improve server desync issues and making weapon swapping more reliable.
In terms of what players can expect in the long term, the dev update was light on details, but did reaffirm that a new weapon, the Blunderbuss, is in the works. Other details include the possibility of mutated expeditions coming to lower-level expeditions. The team also likes the idea of more small-scale PvP like matchmade arenas or more casual versions of activities like Invasions or War, though no concrete plans were discussed. More dev-playthrough videos will be coming soon as well. A previous video saw the dev team accepting the community's challenge to complete the Myrkgard endgame zone, with some humorous results.
New World's next update will add a new endgame system in the form of Mutated Expeditions, as well a way to raise the maximum gear score of items. The new content is currently being tested on the game's PTR and is slated to officially release later this month.
Oha, New World und vor allem diesem Forum geht es wahrlich schlecht, wenn ein Goldseller-Post seit zwei Tagen nicht entfernt wird, trotz Meldung.
Guten Tag Wikario, wir haben nach einer Prüfung diesen Post wieder veröffentlich da es sich hierbei um ein Zitat geht, was auf einer Newsseite geschrieben wurde.
Der Goldsellersatz selber haben wir entfernt.
