The winter event will begin today in New World on December 14. This appears in the patch notes on the PTR server. But so far, no new updates have been seen. When will Patch 1.2 be released? When will Patch 1.2 be released? On December 3, the developer announced a major update to 1.2. This has brought some adjustments to the endgame and PvP, balance changes, and winter activities. The 1.2 preliminary patch notes stated that winter activities should start on December 14. That will be today. But so far, the developers have not released any new patches.
Community manager Luxendra commented on the issues in the New World forum and emphasized that the content of the PTR patch notes can be changed: the information in the PTR patch notes may change. When we announce the upcoming patch, you will find it in the official news section.
This indicates that there may not be an update today.
What else is worth noting?
For several weeks, the developers of New World have been releasing their updates on Thursday. The first three updates were released on Wednesday. However, Tuesday is not the patch day of the New World.
Many people speculate that patch 1.2 should appear on Thursday, December 9. Winter events will be installed but only activated after a few days.
However, due to the large amount of feedback from the PTR, too many changes need to be tested before the release, such as the price cut of the production plaster, new privileges, and some general bug fixes that were only announced before the release.
When will update 1.2 and winter events be released?
The release of patch 1.2 seems most likely to be released this week, Wednesday, or Thursday. Winter activities may go hand in hand with this.
However, there are also speculations that winter activities will continue to be delayed inactivation. Then it is possible to postpone it for a whole week, that is, until December 21.
