I am encountering errors when starting the game, what can I do?
There are a few different solutions that have worked for users with errors on launching the game:
Run a Steam Integrity Check for New World
Uninstall and Reinstall New World
Reinstall Easy Anti-Cheat
Make sure your Windows install is fully up to date
Make sure you are not running a beta version of Windows via the Insider Program for Windows 10
There are weird graphical issues, what should I do?
Make sure your graphics drivers are completely up to date. If the issue persists, try to use the Steam Integrity Check on your install.
I select my character and click Play but only get a black screen and then disconnected. This worked before but not now. Why?
We are still working to figure this one out, but right now it seems the best resolution is to delete that character and start again. Sadly, we can’t recover characters at this time.
How do I fix latency issues that I am having?
Try performing some connectivity maintenance such as flushing your DNS and resetting your router. Also, make sure that you do not have other things running in the background that can be taking up bandwidth. It is possible that, based on where you are located, there may be some latency because of distance from the server, hops taken to reach the server, or connectivity issues based on service providers.
