New World Update 1.5.3

14 June 2022

Greetings, Adventurers!

New World Update 1.5.3 downtime will begin at 11:00PM PT (6:00AM UTC) on June 14, and includes adjustments to PvP rewards.

PvP Faction Missions

  • Adjusted PvP faction mission rewards to better align with other activities like Arenas and Outpost Rush. Players can now focus on their favorite PvP activities with less concern over whether their time would be better spent doing one specific activity to optimize rewards.

    • Players will now earn 200 Salt and 350 PvP XP from each PvP faction mission. These missions previously rewarded 300 Salt and 500 PvP XP.

    • Great Cleave 'Retrieve' & 'Control Point' missions now offer less Salt (100) and PvP XP (200) because they take less time to complete than other missions. Players can now accept a wider variety of quests to reap the same rewards within a similar time commitment.

General Fixes

  • Fixed the emissive texture on the Brimstone Fire Staff’s molten orb.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the cursor to appear and mouselook to disable while in the world.

Thanks for your support! We'll see you in Aeternum.
