New World Server Names Released, But Community Needs More Info - UPDATED

Amazon is gearing up to release New World in less than a week, and the long list of regional servers they’ve posted shows that they're making room for a lot of players to start their adventures. However, some in the community feel the information doesn’t go far enough.

The server lists are divided by region (NA East, NA West, Central Europe, Australia, and South America) and already, folks are trying to decide where to take their guilds or even just to play with smaller groups of friends. While the server list was accompanied by a call to coordinate with friends to pick a world, the lists aren't labeled with anything but their names, which is a little shortsighted, as members of the community may need more information to make their decisions.

While the North American servers are likely to see mostly English speaking players, the Central Europe list doesn't show any language preferences or specifications. Neither does the South American list. While MMORPG players have found their people across servers and separate off-platform organizing for a couple of decades now, a huge launch like this would be helped by having the servers categorized in easy to sort categories. 

Amazon responded via the New World Twitter account that “There will be some servers that have suggested languages to help players decide where they would like to play”. However, there was no information as to when that would be forthcoming, and it mentioned only language suggestions. There was no indication there would be details on whether servers were PvP or PvE oriented, and whether suggested languages would have options like these. Given the feedback so far, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a clarification with some updates soon, especially given that things are in the under one week run to final release. Keep an eye on the New World site for more.

Updated 2:40PM:  Amazon has released the updated, sorted list of servers with language information.
