New World features several servers called worlds. These worlds are grouped into world sets, with a restriction regarding the number of characters you can have on each world set. But what if you want to change servers in New World? Being able to change servers in New World is going to be a very useful feature, wether it is to join friends in another world or simply skip the queue of an overcrowded server.
While developer Amazon Games has stated that it will be possible to change servers in New World, we still have no information as to how to proceed. We will update this guide as soon as we know the steps to migrate an existing character from one server to another.
The need for this feature is certainly there already. The launch day of New World caused extremely long queue times to join a world, with over 20,000 players waiting for a place on some servers. New World developers announced adding new servers soon to accommodate more players. They will also expand the capacity of existing servers, so everyone can log in.
If you want to change servers in New World, you will be able to do so for free in the first two weeks following the release of the game. This means that you can switch servers in New World at no cost until mid-October. There is no information as to how much it will cost past that date, so make sure to move your character while it is free of charge.
In the meantime, to select a server in New World, follow these steps:
- Launch the game and click on Continue in the bottom right corner of the main menu
- Select “Create New Character” on the left side of the screen
- Choose a server from the list
- Create your character
