With the servers practically bursting with interest and demand, anyone wanting to get some decent gameplay in with New World this weekend will need all of the strategic help they can get.
Amazon Game Studio has released a complete list of its legion of servers, along with helpful indicators indicating whether the shards are up, offline, at full capacity, or undergoing maintenance, to aid in determining when and where to play the game. It also informed players that overburdened servers would refuse to create new characters until they were, uh, less overburdened.
The company reiterated its commitment to expand the server count as well as raise the existing servers’ population limits, which are currently restricted. New World is still sitting solidly at number two on Steam on Saturday morning, with well over a half-million people in the game or in the sometimes-hour-long waits. On Friday, the game reached a new concurrent player record of 800,000.
