1) Check for pending Windows and Graphics Drivers updates:
Pending updates can be a huge reason why you are getting connection errors again and again. We suggest downloading the Windows Update Assistant. Or, you can keep an eye on your system settings which will regularly give out notifications for pending updates. Also, ensure that your graphic drivers are up-to-date. You can update your drivers using the dedicated app (like Geforce Experience for Nvidia), or you can use Device Manager. Open Device Manager and look for your graphic drivers on the list. Right-click on it and select the Update Driver option.
2) End unwanted processes:
Open Task Manager (CTRL + ALT + DEL) and delete all the unwanted processes that might be clogging the game’s servers.
3) Verify the integrity of game files:
Open Steam library, right-click on New World > Properties > Local Files tab > Verify integrity of game files… option.
