New World Update 2.0.5

September 12, 2023

Greetings, Adventurers!

New World Update 2.0.5 downtime will begin at 11:00PM PT (6:00AM UTC) on September 12 and last approximately 1 hour. It includes an extension to the Siege of Sulfur event, plus Transmog fixes. Check out the full list of changes below.

Siege of Sulfur

  • The Siege of Sulfur event will be extended until October 3rd.

    • We recognize that the event's launch didn't go as smoothly as we had anticipated and are dedicated to improving the overall experience through additional fixes. In light of the difficulties that have affected completion and enjoyment, we have made the decision to extend the event. We hope that this extension will provide players with a better opportunity to fully experience the encounter and its unique rewards over the next few weeks.

  • Fixed an issue that prevented progress in the Brimstone Sands Siege of Sulfur encounter.

Transmog Fixes

  • Fixed a Transmog issue that prevented players from capturing item appearances until after they logged out and back in.

  • Fixed a Transmog issue caused players to lose item Dyes on equipment if there was an error during application.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Leaderboards to display in the incorrect section of the Transmog window.

  • Fixed an issue with the Desecrated Leather Gloves skin.

3v3 Arenas

  • The Brimstone Sands Gladiatorial Pit will remain active in the 3v3 Arenas map rotation for 3 additional weeks.


  • Players with temporary bans will no longer see a generic login error when starting the game. They will now see an error popup that describes their ban.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the wrong Gear Set Storage icon to appear in the menu.

  • Fixed an issue that caused certain rushing and warring crafting patterns to roll gem slots incorrectly.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Player Titles to appear on Nameplates during Outpost Rush.

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