New World Launches Fresh Start Worlds But Long Queues And In-Game Errors Are Ruining The Player Experience
"Set aside time again for no reason."
Reading the "Rollout Plan" by Amazon Games on New World's Fresh Start Worlds would make you believe everything might run smoothly, but player reactions to today's launch voice everything but that. On Twitter, fans have posted several experiences on their first day that range from absurdly long queues to in-game errors.
It's rather usual nowadays to see launches have problems, but this release has situations that New World players have dealt with constantly. Extended queue times, connection issues, character creation failure errors, and many others plague the early experience of Fresh Start Worlds.
Twitter user Karmic Knight stated Amazon "didn't learn from [their] failures from launch and forced everyone into queues yet again," recalling the wave of #QueueWorld on Twitter as servers struggled under the weight of concurrent players in September last year.
That same wave of feedback is present under their Fresh Start Worlds thread on Twitter, showing pictures with queues as high as 21,204. Another Twitter user, Richard Hufnagel, was upset about being 5,400 in the queue, saying he "set aside time again for no reason" and would possibly have to wait "6 hours."
The New World devs are working on solutions and providing answers to errors on the forums, though, the queue situation likely won't get better today.
