New World is a massively multiplayer online game, which means that as people flock to it, queue times increase, maintenance downtime windows occur, and information regarding server status is critical. For those that are looking to play, and are running into issues, working out what’s going on will likely involving touching on one or several of these topics. No matter what’s going on, here’s some information to figure out New World’s server status and more.
New World server status
Considering New World is developed by Amazon Games, and Amazon has quite a few servers dotted around the world, it should come as no surprise that there is plenty of information to find on New World servers. Players should head over to the New World site, which is where they will find a live feed of a critical information.
The site showcases information pertaining to New World server queue times, how many players are currently waiting in queues, as well as the overall status of the game. Should the servers go down for maintenance – an inevitability for online games – then this page will likely be updated to reflect that.
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page (linked above) you can see a complete list of all the New World servers. This uses the World names, so you'll need to know which one you've signed up for. Find the World name you use to see how many players are in the server, how many are in the queue, and how long the average wait time is before you can get into the game.
New World maintenance downtime
As mentioned above, the New World site is the place to visit should you require detailed information on server maintenance and downtime. Online games like MMOs tend to have weekly maintenance windows where the game is taken offline so the team can push out patches, fixes, and other updates to improve the play experience.
We’ll be certain to update this section once Amazon Games notifies users of any New World maintenance downtimes or scheduled server events that will take the game offline. You should also visit the New Worlds Twitter page for updates on server downtime. The developers often provide information on the times servers will be offline, like what you see in the Tweet embedded below.
[#NWSTATUS UPDATE] We are working on releasing additional worlds for Australia. The downtime is slated to start at 6:30 PM PT (11:30 AM AEST).— New World (@playnewworld) September 29, 2021
The expected downtime is approximately 30 minutes.
Thank you for your patience!
Hopefully the information provided here is enough to give an insight into the state of New World. The longer the game is out, the more information will become available regarding New World server status, queue times, and even maintenance downtimes and the like.
