While a lot of players are facing the connection error and reporting the same, some have even tried troubleshooting the issue. Common fixes like verifying the integrity of steam files, flushing DNS cache, restarting the system and New World, or even re-installing New World didn’t work out. The bugs are not completely independent of each other: most of them are occurring due to server bottlenecks. According to the developers, they are working towards increasing the server capacity. However, it hasn’t been resolved as yet. As the huge login queues continue to drive players away from New World, the bug reports are also stacking up. However, when a player contacted Amazon Games Support regarding the connection error, he received a resolution for the same. The following process was suggested by Amazon Games Support and is working according to the player who posted it. Try the following steps:
- Select Settings from the Start/Windows Menu.
- Then, select Network and Internet.
- In the Status section, find the Change adapter options under Change your network settings.
- After you see a Network Connections window open, right-click on your network connection.
- Select Properties, and scroll to Internet Protocol version 6.
- You will have to uncheck the Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) box.
- Select OK to save your changes for the selected network adapter.
- Restart your PC.
- Then, try launching New World again.
Doing the above will hopefully get rid of the connection error in New World. According to most peeps who tried the above, it worked out for them. For more such updates on New World, stay tuned.
