The long-promised New World server transfers will finally be available this week, but unfortunately it seems that one feature will be absent – the ability to do a transfer between regions, despite developer Amazon Game Studios previously suggesting that this would be possible.
The promised free server transfers were supposed to arrive last week but – as reported earlier today – Amazon delayed them to next week to fix some issues with the transfer option “before we feel comfortable giving everyone their free server transfer token”.
Since then the team has posted a few answers to numerous user questions on the New World forums. The most notable is the fact that the ability to change region during the upcoming server transfers is not going to be possible – players can’t change from an EU server to a US one, for example, or even between the East and West US coasts. This is apparently because “each region is a separate database”, so it’s not possible to move a character to a different one.
