New World’s Latest Community Q&A Tackles Updates, Bugs, and Player Concerns

In the latest “Forged in Aeternum” Community Q&A session for February 2024, hosted by New World’s development team, a series of player concerns and questions were addressed, touching upon issues ranging from gameplay bugs to future updates and content strategies. Scot Lane, a key figure in the team, underscored a commitment to releasing quality updates, albeit acknowledging challenges and setbacks, including the persistence of a bug causing players to be spammed with title achievements upon entering or exiting instances.

The session, marked by an informal and engaging tone, opened with a brief jest about traffic delays affecting team members’ arrivals, before diving into substantive player queries. Among the addressed concerns was the limitation on the number of active artifact quests per character, a restriction explained by data storage capacity issues and the ongoing efforts to optimize and eventually increase this limit.

Addressing a longstanding bug causing annoyance among players, the development team shared their frustration and detailed the complexities in resolving the issue, attributing it to varying player experiences and technical challenges. However, recent breakthroughs offer hope for a forthcoming solution.

The discussion also touched on server merges and the balance between PvP and PvE player engagement, revealing insights into the diverse preferences within the New World community. The team highlighted their data-driven approach to understanding and catering to these different player segments, aiming to balance content to satisfy a wide range of interests.

Moreover, the team hinted at adjustments to game mechanics in response to player feedback, such as the interaction between musket traps and mounts, showcasing a willingness to evolve gameplay based on community input and the internal testing experience.
