New World Valentine’s Day Cosmetics Removed After Bugs Causing Server Crashes Pops Up

Ama­zon Games’ MMORPG New World has seen a great deal of game-break­ing issues since its launch, but some­thing as innocu­ous as Valen­tine’s Day cos­met­ics should­n’t be cause for seri­ous serv­er-crash­ing bugs. How­ev­er, this isn’t the case.

Just a few short hours after the Valen­tine’s Day-themed cos­met­ics went on sale yes­ter­day in New World, Ama­zon removed them from the store–even to the con­fu­sion of some play­ers. Come to find out, the skins have the poten­tial to cause serv­er crash­es, although Ama­zon states that play­ers who did pur­chase the skins should still be able to use them. The cos­met­ics will return to the store once a fix can be implemented. =

This is far from the first inci­dent of a game-break­ing bug to arrive to New World and it will like­ly not be the last. Since the game’s Sep­tem­ber 2021 launch, Ama­zon has shut down the play­er-dri­ven econ­o­my mul­ti­ple times to inves­ti­gate a num­ber of item and dupli­ca­tion glitch­es, addressed a bug that was mak­ing play­ers invin­ci­ble, fixed time-trav­el­ing servers to save the econ­o­my and set­tle­ments, and more. While most of these big­ger issues were fixed quick­ly, it’s still a com­mon event any­time New World goes through a new update.

Ama­zon announced New World would not be get­ting any new con­tent in Feb­ru­ary, with the team opt­ing to focus on deliv­er­ing qual­i­ty-of-life improve­ments and bug fix­es for the game’s next update. In a devel­op­er update, the Ama­zon team stat­ed it learned it need­ed to give updates on the game’s PTR (pub­lic test realm) more time so poten­tial seri­ous bugs and glitch­es can be found by play­ers before it reach­es the glob­al market.

New World recent­ly received new endgame con­tent in the form of Mutat­ed Expe­di­tions, which allows play­ers to take on hard­er ver­sions of the game’s high­er-lev­el dun­geons in exchange for bet­ter rewards.
