New World has today debuted its January 26 update on PC, so here’s the full list of changes and fixes with this patch. Yesterday, the team released a fairly chunky update that featured a number of new additions including the Expedition Mutator system. These ramp up the difficulty of expeditions, thus giving those who want more challenging content more to sink their teeth into. As such, today’s update doesn’t add anything new and instead is a result of maintenance for issues that have immediately cropped up and caused issues. It’s also a fairly short list of patch notes considering the timing. Without further adieu, here’s everything new with New World in its January 26 update!
- We fixed an issue which caused player’s storage sheds being filled with items that are the same but were not stacking properly. This bug also caused those items not be used in crafting, causing crafts to fail and consume the top resource being used. This has been corrected and storage and crafting should be behaving normally.
- The Ring of The Forgers Signet was improperly removed from the game and players inventories. It is now earnable in game, but will not automatically return to inventories. We apologize for this inconvenience and will deliver a make good to return this item outside of a patch to players who had equipped it at any point.
- Fixed a bug that caused loot from Elite Chests in Mutated Lazarus Instrumentality Expeditions to not respect a players expertise. Now, Elite Chests will drop loot based on the player’s expertise values in that Mutated Expedition. We apologize for this inconvenience and will deliver a make good to return mutator orbs outside of this patch to players who used them before this change was made.
- We addressed a server crash which impacts Expeditions and Outpost Rush.
