Ama­zon Game’s MMO New World has received anoth­er update, which fix­es a bunch of addi­tion­al bugs and, again, lays the ground­work for the promised serv­er trans­fer fea­ture. The serv­er trans­fer foun­da­tion was sup­posed to be laid in the pre­vi­ous patch.

The stu­dio said many of its devel­op­ers are “work­ing tire­less­ly on ensur­ing every­one can find a world to call their long-term home.” This fea­ture is just sim­ply not ready, but the new 1.0.2 patch does include oth­er notable changes.

Fac­tion Mis­sions see a reduc­tion to the influ­ence increase over time for attack­ing fac­tions. How­ev­er, the decrease in influ­ence for the defend­ing fac­tions has been removed. The patch also includes bug fix­es, which address­es and issues that could cause play­ers to respawn as a corpse. This update also fix­es an issues that would cause play­ers to “ran­dom­ly teleport.”

You can check out the full set of patch notes below.
