[Notice] Unable to launch New World due to EAC Connection Error

Greetings Adventurers,

We are aware that there are some issues with EAC and Steam preventing players from accessing New World.

If you encounter this issue, we recommend re-installing EAC or verifying the game file through Steam to resolve this issue and get back to playing.

You can find the article on Verifying New World’s Game Files here: Steam Support :: Verify Integrity of Game Files

Looking for the steps to re-install EAC? We have screenshots below!

  1. Open the New World Application in your Steam library and go to Settings → Manage → Browse Local Files

  2. Open the AntiCheat Folder

  3. Run the EasyAntiCheat_Setup executable file

  4. Repair!
