The next New world Update is scheduled for today (March 29th) and will bring some big changes to the Amazon Studios release.
And while player count has dropped dramatically since initial launch, there’s still a healthy number of players waiting for the latest patch to be released. The good news is that Amazon has shared the load of what’s going to happen this week, including details on the content arriving in-game.
Here’s what we know so far about today’s New world Update and maintenance downtime scheduled on servers.
New world update time and server maintenance
Amazon has confirmed that a New World update will be released today, Tuesday 29th March, after the downtime on the servers has ended. New World server maintenance is scheduled to begin at 1pm BST (5am PST) and last approximately two hours. During this time the game will be unavailable and will cover most core functions and features. This also means that the New World update time is scheduled for around 3pm BST and players can then explore the latest content.
The last March update for the game is called Heart of Madness and it contains the main quest for the finale of the storyline. The final quest, The Heart of the Tempest, is given by Yseult Meredith, located at Mountain Home Outpost in Shattered Mountain. The Amazon team has also confirmed that additional repeatable quests from Mara Rosa will be available in the cathedral south of the expedition entrance.
A message from Amazon adds: “The final showdown against Isabella has arrived as you delve deep into the Tempest’s Heart Expedition. Chase the storm through the twisted capital of Myrkgard into a twisted dimension of reality. Uncover the mysteries of her past as you delve deeper into her twisted mind.”
The Tempest’s Heart is an endgame expedition for 5 players. Recommended for level 60 players with Gearscores between 550 and 570. The New World development team has also confirmed the release of the new Blunderbuss weapon, which offers another ranged combat option to choose from. The Blunderbuss is described as offering high mobility paired with strong close-to-mid-range damage, and is also the first weapon to scale on strength and intelligence, making it a good companion for brawler or mage builds. Adventurers will be able to progress through dual-wielding mastery trees, allowing the player to choose between playstyles.
