New World recently became one of the fastest growing MMORPGs on Steam, quickly overtaking Valheim as the largest Steam launch in the history of the platform. Overall, New World is a massive game with a ton of offerings, from PVE to PVP quests, game modes, and even dungeons that players can explore for epic loot. Players can also create and customize their characters with unlimited freedom through a class system that allows them to respec and swap weapons with just the push of a button. There is also a ton of crafts and a trading system for those who want to dominate the market. However, there are a lot of things that need to be fixed and are in the process of being fixed. That said, here are all of the recent patch notes for the game listed below.
