New World: Update 1.0.1 released

Update 1.0.1 is available on the New World servers (from 39,99€ at pre-order) has been installed. It covers the basics for the upcoming character transfer service (preparations in the in-game shop), performance improvements in “War”, adjustments to AFK detection and general bug fixes.

Developer statement: “Last week we announced that it is our top priority that all players can log in and get started quickly without getting stuck in queues. To achieve this goal, we have more than doubled the number of servers available and expanded server capacity on existing servers. We are also continuing to work on a feature that will allow players to move their characters to different servers. This feature will be available soon. While members of our team work tirelessly to ensure players have a server find that they can make permanent home using the character transfer feature, others of us have been working on some additional updates to make the game more comfortable and bug fixes to ensure that players can play the game and progress as planned as soon as they can they entered Aeternum.


  • We have created the basics for the upcoming character transfer service and implemented it in the game so that you may already be able to see elements of our preparations in the in-game shop. We are still working on finalizing this feature and will provide you with more information on how it will work later this week (when we are ready to release the feature).


  • War turret projectiles that were previously physical projectiles have been modified to use hitscan detection. This should improve performance in war, as fewer objects are spawned in the world.

AFK prevention

  • To ensure that players cannot remain AFK (especially on busy servers), we’ve made the following adjustments to the AFK prevention system.
  • An additional AFK prevention has been added, which ensures that games cannot trick the existing system with the help of simulated mouse movements.
  • The time to the AFK warning has been reduced from 20 to 15 minutes.
  • The disconnection from the server due to AFK has been reduced from 25 to 20 minutes.

World waiting snake

  • We added a confirmation screen that appears when a player tries to exit the queue for a world. The player will then be asked to confirm that they really want to leave the queue. This should ensure that no one accidentally leaves the queue and loses their seat.
