The long-promised New World server transfers will lastly be accessible this week, however sadly plainly one characteristic will probably be absent – the flexibility to do a switch between regions, regardless of developer Amazon Game Studios beforehand suggesting that this might be attainable.
The promised free server transfers have been presupposed to arrive final week however – as reported earlier right this moment – Amazon delayed them to subsequent week to repair some points with the switch possibility “before we feel comfortable giving everyone their free server transfer token”.
Since then the workforce has posted just a few solutions to quite a few person questions on the New World boards. The most notable is the truth that the flexibility to change area throughout the upcoming server transfers shouldn’t be going to be attainable – gamers can’t change from an EU server to a US one, for instance, and even between the East and West US coasts. This is outwardly as a result of “each region is a separate database”, so it’s not attainable to maneuver a personality to a special one.
It’s disappointing for anybody hoping to maneuver regions in New World at any level sooner or later, however it’s additionally opposite to what the workforce has mentioned beforehand – as just lately as final week Amazon was telling gamers “you can move between regions if you want”, however now it admits “unfortunately the original information provided was incorrect”.
Yes, you can transfer between regions if you need.
