With a peak concurrent player count that shows no signs of slowing down, it’s safe to say Amazon’s New World is making waves. But before you brave the long queue times or even begin to browse the server list, consider adjusting New World’s settings so you can squeeze every last frame from your gaming PC when you finally step foot in Aeternum.
On the surface, New World’s system requirements don’t ask for much. In fact, Amazon recommends a decade old Intel gaming CPU or first generation AMD Ryzen processor, accompanied by a seven-year-old graphics card to scratch your 60fps itch at HD. Although this sounds like a low barrier to entry, this is an MMO and you need to prepare for how busy the settlements can sometimes get – especially as there’s no shortage of people knocking at the door to get in and worlds are constantly full to the brim with players.
Since you don’t have Nvidia DLSS or AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution to help with the overhead, you’ll need to turn to the myriad of options at your fingertips if you want to avoid any major dips at a decent resolution.
