New world update fixes several quest bugs and establishes a Steam-free weekend

blank

The latest update for New world focuses on bug fixes and preparations for a Steam-free weekend.

Some of the fixes in this patch were for quests that players simply couldn’t complete or that gave incorrect rewards. The Depths, which has been closed for days pending a fix that allows players to earn quest credit for killing Commander Thorpe, should be addressed with the update. Taking him down in the expedition should advance the search, which was deadlocked. This, in turn, should mean that the expedition will officially reopen soon.

Another fix addresses a bug in the “Soul of the Storm” questline where loot was not awarded that was tailored to a player’s expertise. A main storyline quest, Answer the Call, was also not letting players complete it due to a bug preventing a key item from being granted. If you’re on this quest, resetting it and trying again should work

Repairs came for a few other bugs too. These include storage chests, which didn’t increase stock levels in the city like they should have. Player achievements not loading at the start of a new session. And the blunderbuss also saw some misplacements under the muskets at the trading post.

To introduce more players to the game and try to increase the number of active players, Amazon is hosting a Steam-free weekend. All content in the game can be tried for free starting tomorrow, April 7th at 10:00am Pacific Time until April 11th at 10:00am Pacific Time. Those who participate in the Free Weekend can purchase the game at a 40% discount until April 18th. If you start new characters during this time, your progress will be saved and you can continue playing if you buy the game.

In an FAQ regarding the free access period, they will be “merging free servers after Steam Free Weekend to ensure a healthy world population”, so it looks like Steam Weekend won’t let you play directly with existing players during this access period.
