Amazon has delayed the server transfer feature in New World due to “extreme cases where the transfer experience does not meet our standards for release.” Additionally, he said there would be no server transfer between regions, although he previously said that would be allowed.
Community manager TervzorFTW shared the news on the official New World forums and said the team needed “a little more time to resolve these issues before they felt comfortable giving everyone their own.” free server transfer token “.
For those who don’t know, each account will receive a free server transfer token that will allow them to choose a new server in the selected region. However, “the team will continue to monitor global populations, wait times, and assess the need to distribute an additional wave of server transfer tokens free of charge.” Tokens will also be available for purchase in the future.

The New World Twitter account even stated that “Yes, you can move between regions if you want. “ Unfortunately, this shared information was incorrect.
In a server transfer FAQ article, it was confirmed that “the original information provided was incorrect” and that “transfers are only available in your region, each region is a separate database and there is no it is not possible to reassign a character to a different region. “
