PTR: Welcome and Thank you - Brimstone Sands Update

Greetings Adventurers,

Thank you for participating in the Public Test Realm (PTR) and helping us knock out bugs and test content before they go live. We appreciate all of your help!

For more in-depth information on our upcoming PTR, please read our article here: PTR: Schwefelsandwüste-Veröffentlichung - Neuigkeiten | New World - Open World MMO PC-Spiel

Please see our downtime notification here for more information: https://forums.newworld.com/t/downtime-brimstone-sands-ptr-update-1/761220

This PTR will release content in multiple phases to ensure that all content is being equally tested. For this second phase, we will be focusing primarily on the following:

  • The new zone, Brimstone Sands
  • The Ennead expedition
  • The Heartgem skill-customization feature
  • Nightveil Hallow seasonal world event

At this time, we are specifically looking to collect bug reports and feedback on the following:

Additional features will be released at a later date. Stay tuned to this post for when those features and the corresponding focus feedback threads roll out!


In addition to US East, we will be opening a server in Central EU to help facilitate testing. To access the PTR, you may need to change your region selection on the PTR Character Selection Menu.

Please find the backstories for Brimstone Sands below. We are offering level 60 backstories that include level 60 Greatswords and applicable character set-ups. They are different so make sure you select the backstory you want to use to test! Otherwise, you are welcome to delete and recreate your character with another backstory.

Thank you again for your help and we’ll see you in Aeternum!
