Fast forward a week later and now that patch is ready for prime time, with Amazon launching it on live servers today.

New World is getting a ton of new content: Here’s how to try it before launch

New World is getting a massive update later this month, and the update is adding so much that Amazon is launching a Public Test Realm (PTR) to put the new content through its paces first. A number of video games have PTRs to test updates before they go live for everyone, including some MMOs. New World's PTR is going live later today and will give players a chance to test out these upcoming features - which include a new weapon, new quests, and new enemies - for themselves.

Latest New World update has good news for broke players, bad news for gold sellers

Overnight, New World received its weekly update, and there were some big changes contained in this one. While we received the usual round of bug fixes, Amazon also implemented some changes concerning the gold cost of attribute respecs and the Azoth cost of weapon skill tree respecs, meaning that players should be able to change their builds much more frequently. In addition, Amazon detailed some measures it's implementing to combat all of the gold sellers players have undoubtedly seen in chat.

Amazon’s New World just had a dire 24 hours

It's been a rough 24 hours for New World. The Amazon-crafted MMO has had its share of problems since launch, but over the last day or so, we've seen Amazon grappling with a rather severe gold duplication issue. Amazon's response to the gold duping exploit was swift but questionable, as it brought New World's economy to a screeching halt.

New World update 1.0.2 brings new bug fixes, but no server transfers yet

New World update 1.0.2 brings new bug fixes, but no server transfers yet

New World received a new update overnight, and while this update serves up another round of bug fixes, it might not sit well with New World's player base. That's because the update is arriving without server transfers, which were originally expected to go live last week. It also seems that the update misses one big bug in particular that is putting a damper on endgame progress.

Final Fantasy XIV Online: Endwalker hands-on through the eyes of a complete noob

Final Fantasy XIV Online: Endwalker hands-on through the eyes of a complete noob

2021 really feels like it's been Final Fantasy XIV Online's year. The game has enjoyed an uptick in popularity and visibility, both as a place for World of Warcraft refugees who are either disappointed in Shadowlands or sick of Blizzard, but also as a game that can stand on its own as an excellent MMO. Square Enix is set to cap off a good year with the release of Final Fantasy XIV's fourth expansion, Endwalker, in November, and I recently had the chance to sit down with the expansion to test it out.

Instead, what we're getting in this update are a bunch of fixes, a couple of quality of life changes, and some changes to New World's AFK detection system.

In New World, picking weapons is my biggest problem

In New World, picking weapons is my biggest problem

Like many MMO fans, I've been spending a lot of time with New World lately. While I'll need to play a lot more before I can review the game, I've played more than enough to know that I have a problem on my hands: I still have no idea which weapons I want to use. I've cycled through many different weapons, and I'm not much closer to the answer now than I was when I first started playing.

Amazon goes to war with New World AFKers

Amazon goes to war with New World AFKers

If you're a New World player, you've undoubtedly encountered many players in town who were doing nothing but autorunning into a wall. Of course, anyone who has played a popular MMO before knows that these players are attempting to defy New World's AFK timer, which kicks players from the game after a certain period of inactivity. Autorunning into a wall may not help players bypass AFK detection anymore, as Amazon has implemented new tools to help it determine when players are trying to sidestep the AFK timer.
