New World's Long-Awaited 2.0.2 Performance Patch: A Tale of Delays and Anticipation


Imagine the anticipation of waiting for a significant update to your favorite game, New World, only to find out that the maintenance and patch have been delayed for an entire day. This was the reality for New World players recently, as Amazon delayed the rollout of the 2.0.2 performance patch. The maintenance, initially scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. EDT, was postponed several times without explanation, leaving players in a state of suspense.

The Promise of the 2.0.2 Patch

Despite the delay, the promise of what the 2.0.2 patch brings to the table has kept the anticipation alive among the New World community. The patch is expected to introduce significant performance improvements to the game, enhancing the overall gameplay experience.

One of the key changes is the way shaders are loaded on the game client. This change is expected to reduce instances of frame-hitching and stuttering, making for a smoother and more immersive gaming experience. However, this improvement comes with a trade-off: an impact on the game's boot-up time.

The Trade-Off

With the 2.0.2 patch, players will notice a longer start-up time when launching New World. The duration of this delay will depend on your local hardware setup. Those with SSD hard drives will experience less of a delay, while those with HDDs may find the delay a bit longer. During this process, the client will remain on the initial New World logo screen for up to a minute as it front-loads necessary assets.


While the delay in the rollout of the 2.0.2 patch may have been a source of frustration for New World players, the promise of improved performance and a smoother gaming experience makes the wait worthwhile. The introduction of these enhancements underscores Amazon's commitment to continually improving the game and providing players with the best possible gaming experience. So, whether you're a seasoned New World player or a newcomer to the game, there's plenty to look forward to with the arrival of the 2.0.2 patch. Happy gaming!
