We will be holding downtime for the US-West and Australia regions that start at 12:30pm PT/5:30am AEST to improve server performance. We will be adding 250 more capacity to servers in these regions.
Expected downtime: approximately 120 minutes (2 hours)
Additionally, we will be releasing a no-downtime client-side patch to implement some queue stability fixes around the same time for all regions. You may receive a download for New World the next time you start Steam.
Thank you for your patience!
