[FAQ] How to Transfer to Another Server or Region

Here, you will find the instructions to transfer your character between servers and between regions.

If you are looking to arrange for your entire company to transfer together, we suggest you act fast as worlds may be marked as “full” and “no transfer” depending on the existing population at that time.

Please note that transfer tokens are non-refundable. Please check Server Status | New World - Open World MMO PC Game for the latest world status prior to purchasing the token if you’re intending to transfer to a specific world.

Additionally, transferring one character will place all characters on a 3 day transfer cooldown.
