Black screens are one of the most commonly reported and annoying issues in video games. Imagine buying a game, and it refuses to load up. It can be very frustrating. But, sometimes, we just can’t do enough to solve such problems. A huge fan base welcomed the Amazon Games’ New World on September 28. Fans around the world highly appreciated the new approach to MMORPG. However, the video game received some mixed reviews, mainly because of the overwhelming number of bugs. Some bugs are even stopping peeps from advancing in the main questline. However, the black screen bug in New World seems to be one of the most annoying since it stops peeps from loading the game.
Black Screen issue while trying to launch the New World game
Is anyone else having issues with the game being stuck on the initial splash (logo) screen and then a black screen? I tried verifiying files, updating drivers, restarting but nothing worked for me. Any other things to try? Anyone fixed it?
Reports like above poured in as more and more players started facing the black screen while they tried to launch the game. Most of them aren’t able to get past the logo screen. On top of that, many have already tried troubleshooting the issue themselves. So, even if all drivers and the OS is fully updated and the files are verified, the black screen issue still persists. We understand that New World is very new to the world and needs some time to be completely bug-free. But, being a pay-to-play video game, fans would slowly start losing patience if the devs don’t bring a patch fix fast enough. New World is a wonderful game, but the mixed reviews pouring in are mostly because of the long list of bugs.
I’m having the same problem but it just fixed itself after servers went down a minute ago.
Looks like the black screen issue is because of the hiccups in the servers. So, even if you tried performing the “tricks” to solve the issue, the problem is actually on the developers’ side. Did you know you can check the server status for New World easily? Read this article to know how to. If the servers are down, wait for a couple of hours before launching the game again. And, don’t worry! The developers are trying their best to solve the server overload issue and will come up with a resolution soon.
