If you want to gain access to the servers, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  1. First, you’ll need to look for the New World Public Test Realm standalone application in your steam library. It should appear on your library list right underneath New World once the servers go live.
  2. Then, you simply need to download the client and open it once it’s complete.

It’s important to note that servers are limited. Initially, there will only be two available: one in US East and in Central Europe. They operate on a first-come, first-served basis, and there may be queues.

Players will be able to instantly level their PTR characters to specific level ranges, complete with gear and items.

If you encounter a bug, exploit, or have suggestions to improve a feature or piece of content, you’ll be able to provide feedback using an in-game feedback tool.

As mentioned above, New World’s Public Test Realm (PTR) servers go live on Wednesday, November 10, at 12 PM PT (7 PM UTC).

However, the servers will shut down and be wiped clean at the end of each test period. This happens once the PTR content has been added to the main client.

The client will remain in your library, but the servers won’t be accessible.

11/10/2021 Update: The PTR has been slightly delayed due to “technical issues.” Stay tuned to this post on the New World forums as devs continue to provide updates.
