What does it mean for the game industry if over 100 new worlds are created this week? It means players will be able to experience a whole new host of adventures and storylines. The question is how well can these servers survive as they grow in popularity, and what effect might this have on other games across New World’s platform.

Over a hundred New World servers are affected by today’s merge round


The mergers continue in Amazon’s New World as the firm deals with dwindling player numbers: the game’s top concurrent player count was over 900,000 last autumn, but it’s now down to approximately a tenth of that.

Today’s merging, which affects 49 Central EU servers, 45 North American servers, and 12 Oceanic servers, may be the largest one-shot merge we’ve ever seen. To be clear, some of them are merges and others are mergees, but they’re all being smooshed together since they meet Amazon’s criterion for a “suboptimal” gaming experience. The preparation downtime happened yesterday night, but the merges will start at 11:30 a.m. EST and run two hours, which is perfect since that’s when Raiders of the Lost Ark starts anyhow.

“Once in-game message has been posted, players in these worlds will not be able to switch servers, nor will they be able to transfer to a combined world.” When users first start the game, they’ll see a banner at the bottom of their screen notifying them of the merger.”

Greetings, Adventurers!

We’ll be combining worlds from the Central European Union, the United States of America (East), the United States of America (West), and Australia.

Tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. PT (11:30 a.m. CET), there will be a 2-hour outage.

Here’s where you can see your new worlds! https://t.co/wkJKoCdfFm

After the integration, the servers have returned… Today, at least one thing is working well for Amazon.

The melding of all universes is complete! Take pleasure in your new Aeternum residences.
