New World posts the names of its 176 launch day servers

    
37

With less than a week to go before New World’s September 28th launch, there isn’t much time left for interested players to make plans for the first day of release. And since it’s always quite helpful to have a list of servers beforehand for the purpose of player and guild coordination, we’re pleased to see Amazon post New World’s realms.

All 176 of them.

That’s right: On day one, New World will roll out 54 servers for North America East, 22 for North America West, 63 for Central Europe, 11 for Australia and 26 for South America. That invited immediate comments about future server merges, but, as always, we’ll come to that bridge when we come to it.

And once you’ve settled on a server, you can check out the official soundtrack for New World, composed by Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell.

I wonder (as a non-American) why East Coast US gets so many more servers than West Coast? Are our Californian buddies not as interested as our New York cousins?

Not really. They had 1 million pre-orders a while back.

When will we be able to download? For a big launch like this Id think they would start about a week in advance to prevent DL server crunch. When I go to my Amazon pre-order the download link brings me to a page that says “Sorry, we couldnt find that page”, and the New World site still has a button that says “purchase New World” Starting to get antsy
edit: found a youtube guy says its Monday morning

Does anyone know the player cap on these servers?

I remember early in development, they stated they were aiming at 1000 active players per server as the cap. However, despite playing the latest beta I have been unable to confirm personally, nor find any current info on the player cap.

The old player cap certainly made sense, given the relatively small game world and the focus on PvP. Totally made sense to keep numbers manageable and players funneled to a few areas. But, since the switch to PvE, that old player cap may no longer make sense.

I’ve seen people mention 2.5k matter-of-factly, but I have no idea where that number originates.

2.5k is (roughly) what they tested during OBT/CBT. I believe it comes from dividing the number of players at peak by the number of servers.

Someone please tell Amazon about alphabetical order.

In case someone wants to avoid “superservers”. List is a work in progress

Thanks for the link!

Just a heads-up that this list only cares about streamer communities, not non-streamer communities. There will be servers designated by specific communities not on that list.

good call. 👍
Here’s another source to check that *should* cover most known communities:

I’m surprised by the large amount of servers, I don’t think I’ve ever played an online game that had that many, not a MMORPG.

It makes me worry that these servers may seem empty.

I wonder how many players each can hold?

2,500ish is what they were tested at during beta.

I’m glad at least that future server mergers are already baked into the system.

One thing my guild is hoping they talk about is how the servers are clustered together. We’re waiting to choose our server based on where streamers, some of the larger problem guilds, etc. end up. Trying to dodge those clusters as much as possible for when it comes time for merges.
