Amazon Games has been having a hard time since the release of New World.

New World is losing its fan base because of the notorious server bottlenecks and annoying bugs triggered by the same. The GPU issue is, however, not a new thing. This was first reported during New World’s first beta phase. And, the issue has managed to appear in the final version of New World as well.

Even if the video game is being run on the lowest graphics, the crashes don’t stop. Players have tried all sorts of tips: disabling steam overlay, modifying GPU fan speeds, and all the basic restarting and reinstalling. But, nothing seemed to work completely. After receiving loads of reports regarding the same, Amazon Games has finally acknowledged the problem. We urge you to make sure your GPU drivers are updated to their latest versions.
